Given the weather in Sacramento, 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 purchasing a 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 simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Sacramento or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of 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 sudden cold front that cools things off a bit.
- 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 hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to manage 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 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?
