Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Brighton

Given the temperatures in Brighton, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 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 hotter 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 manage 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 inside.

Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
