Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Ronkonkoma

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Ronkonkoma, there are a number 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 hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 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 cooler months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big 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 chilly 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 gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
