Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for San Jose

Given the temperatures 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 consider 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 completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 tad.
  • Air handlers make sure 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 top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the environments 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 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?
