Given the weather in Franklin Lakes, there are a variety 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 be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Franklin Lakes or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern section of North America usually has 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 employ 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad.
- 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 top priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
