Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Santee

Given the temperatures in Santee, there are a number 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Santee or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America typically 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 normally use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 best 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 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 high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

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