Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Oxford

Given the weather in Oxford, 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 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 completely  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Oxford or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally use 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 greatest 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 certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
