Given the environment in Lexington, 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 quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Lexington or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 bit.
  • Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 indoors.

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