Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Upland09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Upland, there are a number 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 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 determine what will work best for the current climate in Upland or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally 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 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 bit. 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 warmer 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. 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 your region. Not sure what is right for you?
