The Heating and Air Conditioning Dilemma

by | Oct 8, 2014 | Heating and Air Conditioning

There is an issue that all homeowners have to deal with when it comes to cooling down or heating up their homes: which method is best? Should you go with a Central Air system, install some ceiling fans, use an oil burner, furnace, fireplace, wall unit air conditioners, or some other method you haven?t even heard of yet? Heating and air conditioning is important to the comfort of your home all year round but you still want a method that is reliable, energy efficient, and cost effective. So, which one is best for your home?

Size Matters
It?s not only the size of your house that will determine the way that you heat and cool it but also the way that the rooms are laid out. This is one of most important parts of choosing a heating and air conditioning system.? You can change many things inside your house in regards to installing a new system but knocking down or building walls is a lot more complicated.

  • * Large spaces can be difficult to heat up or cool down efficiently because the vents and units need to be very strategically placed in order to get air to every room. In this case, you may want to consider ceiling fans in areas where the ceiling is high or the room is particularly spacious. This will help move the air around so that you don?t have to install extra vents or units.
  • * Many small rooms pose a different dilemma. If you?re someone who closes doors in the rooms you?re not using (or when you are using them), the air will be trapped in that small room and cause it to get too hot or too cold. You could put vents or other units into every room, leave the doors open to encourage circulation of the air, or install a system that incorporates many different zones that are each controlled separately.
  • * A house that incorporates the basement or attic as usable spaces can make things difficult because each of these spaces is naturally warm or cold. In the attic, heat rises and in the basement it?s always cooler underground. This will mean that you may need separate thermostats in these areas or you could use a ceiling fan in the attic and space heaters in the basement.
