Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Ellsworth

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Ellsworth, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely  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 Ellsworth or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America usually encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 best 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 make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
