Given the environment in San Jose, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in San Jose or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 best 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 colder months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
