Given the weather in Lake Forest, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America usually has warmer weather for most 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 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • 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 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 go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 in your home.

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 ideal for you?
