Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Long Beach

Given the temperatures in Long Beach, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Long Beach or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 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 sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big 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 chilly 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 understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
