Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Lodi09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Lodi, 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 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 weather. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Lodi or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern area of North America normally encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one package. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a few degrees. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose 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 year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
