Heating and Cooling Services in Cincinnati, OH
Air conditioner and heating systems in Cincinnati require some degree of analysis so the HVAC unit consistently provides the perfect indoor environment for your family.
For example, the climate of Cincinnati originates from what is called by the National Weather Service “a climatic transition zone.” Specifically, the city sits at the northern edge of a humid subtropical climate and the southern limit of the humid continental climate zone. This means the hot and humid summers and cold and snowy winters definitely impact the type of HVAC unit you want to install.
Cincinnati Weather Facts
Here are some interesting Cincinnati weather stats (from the National Weather Service, all temperatures in Fahrenheit):
Heat: The hottest months are June (average high of 83.0), July (86.6) and August (85.8).
Cold: The coldest months are December (average low 27.1) January (23.7) and February (26.2).
Precipitation: The highest average precipitation month is May with 5.02 inches.
Snowfall: The highest average snowfall month is January with 7.2 inches.
Of course, as you Cincinnatians know, there can be extremes. The most extreme days have ranged from a low of -25° (January, 18, 1977) and a high of 109° (July, 21, 1934).
Heating and Cooling Degree Days
According to climate-zone.com, there are 5248 heating degree days (HDD) and 996 cooling degree days (CDD) each year in Cincinnati. These are calculations engineers look at to determine each day's temperatures in relation to the demand that will be needed for fuel to heat or cool structure.
Just to provide a point of comparison, below are two extremes regarding heating and cooling degree days:
- Barrow, Alaska (HDD is 20,370, CDD is 0)
- Hilo, Hawaii (HDD is 0, CDD is 3,134)
You can see that the average home in Cincinnati requires about five times more heating than cooling each year. It also suggests there may be periods (in the spring and fall) when you need neither. However, you might find that adding a dehumidifier, humidifier, or whole air filter will provide much greater comfort in a climate like Cincinnati.
Also, while a heat pump might be a good solution in the hot, dry climate in Dallas, for Cincinnati, a central gas system probably works the best. Your True Energy Smart Air technician will take a whole house approach by examining the climate, location of the structure, square footage of the home, room placement, sun exposure and other factors.
HVAC components like the central heating and air conditioning units can be combined with other air devices like humidifiers, air filters, and dehumidifiers to create the optimum indoor environment for your family
