Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Carlsbad09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Carlsbad, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast 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 simple breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Carlsbad or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit. 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 big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold 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 all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
