Given the temperatures in Bishop, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast 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 explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Bishop or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage 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 certain that 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 big 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
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 best for you?
