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 consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast 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 decide what will work best for the current climate in Marshalltown or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most 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 system. 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 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 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

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?
