HVAC System Types
Systems that are at home in any home
Your drapes, fabrics and paint colors were all chosen with care to suit your home and tastes. Your heating and cooling system should be just the same. That’s why we offer our innovative products in four configurations. One is sure to meet your needs perfectly.
A split system simply means your solution has products that reside both inside and outside your home.
In many cases, a split system consists of:
- Furnace – provides heating and the fan used year round to circulate air
- Evaporator coil – the indoor component of your outdoor cooling unit
- Air conditioner or heat pump – works in tandem with the evaporator coil
- Ducts – carry the conditioned air throughout your home
- Control or thermostat – your interface for controlling your system
- Optional air quality accessories – clean, humidify, and freshen air before it circulates throughout your home
Some split systems consist only of an outdoor unit, such as a heat pump or air conditioner, and an inside fan coil. If that’s the case, there’s usually another heat source in the home like baseboard heat or a boiler.
Packaged products can be powered by three different methods:
- Cooling-only packaged products run solely on electricity
- Gas heating and cooling units use gas for heating and electricity for cooling
- Heat pump packaged products use electricity to heat and cool
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits, including ductless air conditioners and ductless heat pumps, can fit in any space, even where traditional HVAC systems don't. With their virtually endless configurations, ductless mini split air conditioner and heat pump products deliver comfort with minimal visual impact. Unlike traditional central air conditioning and heating systems, ductless heating and cooing systems come in all shapes and sizes, and don't require ducts inside your walls. These wall-mounted air handlers are flexible and work wherever you need them.
