Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Buellton

Given the temperatures in Buellton, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left 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 Buellton or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically 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 a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers make certain that 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 top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates 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 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 all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
