Given the temperatures in Southern California, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with our weather here.
Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Southern California or a new climate if you plan on moving.
In the warmer climate of Southern California
The southern region of North America typically lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the years, 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 – handle 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 few degrees.
- 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of our Southern California climate.
