Default when to breed dairy heifer

I have a jersey heifer and I wanted to know at what age should I breed her. I have had several people tell me to wait untill she is 19 to 20 months old but that would make her have her calf in the heat of the summer. Does it matter if I wait untill she is older or if I have her bred when she is 15 to 18 months old?
Thank you for the help.
