Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Lodi

September 30, 2015

Given the weather 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Lodi or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America typically has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize 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 greatest 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 certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler 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 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
