Given the weather in Hodgenville, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Hodgenville or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one package. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
- Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
