Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Las Vegas

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

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

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically 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 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 sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the warmer 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 cold 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 year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
