The different coasts

The Southern States will be less cold, but the HVAC must be able to cool the house year-round

As everyone knows, the classic Beach Boys song that heaped praise on East Coast Girls, Southern Girls, Mid-Western farmer’s daughters, and Northern Girls had lyrics with a preference for West Coast Girls. In the mid-1960s the west was truly the “in place” to be and a magnet for young people everywhere. Today, in the world of HVAC, the west coast remains one of nature’s best natural AC systems, especially in areas where residents are kept cool in the summer by the sea fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean regularly and gets blocked by inland hills. Over those hills, it may reach 105°F but it rarely gets above 80° F in that special area just off the coast. For a good number of homes, all they need is a small gas heater for those chilly summer nights. Other areas in the USA are not that lucky. The East Coast weather will be tempered a bit by the Atlantic Ocean but will need an HVAC system for freezing temperatures and hot humid summers. Inland mid-western states face a similar situation with the snowy “Lake Effect” and hot humid summers. The Southern States will be less cold, but the HVAC must be able to cool the house year-round. Summers in northern states can get hot but any HVAC system in the higher latitudes will need to do battle with average winter temperatures that average 0° to 15°. If you can’t get a Northern girl there to keep you warm at night, stop listening to the Beach Boys and play some Three Dog Night.
