Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Marshalltown

Given the temperatures in Marshalltown, there are a variety 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 fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 surprise cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the summer 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

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