While temperatures typically don’t fluctuate wildly in the San Francisco Bay Area, there are times when temperatures may dip into the 30’s on occasion, or get as high as 90 degrees or hotter. Many Contra Costa homeowners consider air conditioning a luxury rather than a necessity, but there are reasons other than comfort that will help you understand why a cooling/heating system is a wise investment. At Ortiz Heating & Air Conditioning we want homeowners to be more aware of the other benefits of having an HVAC system installed in your home.
Because many air conditioners function to cool a home in the summer months and warm it in the winter, comfortable temperatures can be maintained in your home year-round, which is important for very young children and the elderly.
Those with respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies enjoy cleaner, healthier air with fewer allergens, dust, and other particles.
Quality HVAC systems work to control the moisture or humidity levels in your home, reducing the growth of mildew and mold by taking excess moisture or humidity out the air.
You can keep your windows and doors closed, which means fewer insects coming inside, and increased security for you and your family.
On unusually warm summer nights, you can enjoy quiet, comfortable sleep without having to use noisy pedestal or table top fans.
Whether the temperatures outdoors and inside your home are too cold or too hot, you can enjoy a comfortable home in just minutes with a simple touch of a button.
Because of the high efficiency of most heating/cooling systems installed in Contra Costa homes today, your electric bill probably won’t increase too much, depending on how often you turn on the heat or A/C.
Temperatures in the San Francisco area generally range from the 40s to the 70s, depending on the time of year. By having a new HVAC system installed, you can enjoy a more comfortable home year-round, whether your comfort level is 68 degrees or 75 degrees – and your health will benefit as well, as the indoor air will be cleaner and healthier for breathing.
