Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for San Dimas09/30/2015Given the temperatures in San Dimas, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in San Dimas or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
