Trying to Decide Between a Heat Pump and an Air Conditioner for Your South Georgia Home?

Published on: February 27, 2012

It’s no surprise that during the South Georgia summer months the temperatures can get pretty high. As a South Georgia homeowner, you may need to decide whether or not an air conditioner or heat pump is the best solution to keep your home comfortable. When making your decision between an air conditioner or a heat pump, there are several things to consider to make the most informed decision.

For an area such as South Georgia, fairly warm temperatures are expected throughout the year, extending beyond the traditional three summer months June, July, and August. In this type of climate, an air conditioner may provide your home with the most efficient cooling method. Because your air conditioner would run most often, it may make more sense to put your money toward an energy efficient air conditioning unit. A Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer in South Georgia can assist you with choosing the right model for your home.

A heat pump is a favorable option for milder climates that don’t have long-term heating needs but do have hot summers. Therefore a heat pump will cool your South Georgia home in the summer months and provide a cost effective option for heating your home or business in the fairly brief winters.

The ultimate decision of whether or not to purchase an air conditioner of heat pump system for your home will rely heavily on your personal comfort needs. A Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer technician can inspect your home and discuss your preferences to help you choose the right system.
