Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Sylmar09/30/2015Given the weather in Sylmar, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a 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 environment. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Sylmar or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority 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 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a tad. 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
