Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Pacheco09/30/2015Given the environment in Pacheco, there are a host 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 quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Pacheco or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern section of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the summer 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 choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
