Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Thousand Oaks09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Thousand Oaks, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Thousand Oaks or a new climate if you plan on moving. 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 made for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 a surprise 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 cooler months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Being 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?
