Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Plainfield

Given the temperatures in Plainfield, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Plainfield or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
