Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Lexington

Given the environment in Lexington, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Lexington or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America usually has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ 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 most 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 make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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.

Ensuring 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 state. Not sure what is best for you?
