Given the temperatures in Cambridge, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Cambridge or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern region of North America typically has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally 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 a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit.
- Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
