Given the temperatures in Long Island, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through 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 wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Long Island or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern section of North America typically has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically use 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit.
- Air handlers ensure 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.
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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
