We know what you’re thinking: “‘How to stay cool in the Bay Area’? Have you ever even lived here?” For some local residents, “San Francisco Bay Area air conditioning” might seem like an oxymoron. They’ll point out that the average temperature during the hottest months of the year is historically only in the low 70s. But, despite misconceptions, it can get quite hot in Berkeley and the surrounding area during the summer months and in early fall. If staying comfortable is important to you, especially as we look to spend more time indoors this summer, investing in a heating and air conditioning system can really come in handy.
The Truth About How Hot the Bay Area Gets
This may seem obvious, but it’s worth clarifying: an average temperature is just that—an average. And what an average temperature doesn’t always illustrate are the extremes at either end, when the weather is either unusually cold, or unusually hot.
If you’ve been a Bay Area resident for more than a few years, you’ll certainly remember your fair share of scorching hot summer days. For example, back in September 2017, the temperatures reached 106 Fahrenheit—breaking all records to become the hottest day in San Francisco’s recorded history, going back nearly 150 years!
Air Conditioning Protects You Against the Unexpected
By the time you realize that your home is getting way too hot, it’s often too late to do anything but sit there and suffer through it. That’s why taking a proactive approach against the summer heat is a good idea. Installing a new air conditioner (or upgrading your old and outdated unit) ensures that while your neighbors might be sweating through their shirts and sticking their heads in the freezer to cool off, your home will be comfortable and running at optimal home performance levels.
A new or upgraded HVAC system can bring you:
Comfort during hot weather
Higher energy efficiency and energy cost savings
Improved indoor air quality
