Types of HVAC Systems
Once you have decided to either repair or replace your current HVAC system with a new one, you should be considering which system is correct for your residence or business.
Heating and Air Conditioning Split Systems
Split systems are the classic heating and air conditioning element. These are the traditional types of HVAC systems where the whole system can either be inside or outside of the building. Split systems typically have:
-- An air conditioner cooling the refrigerant
-- Furnaces and fan or evaporator coil
-- Ducts to carry air throughout the building
-- Control panels or thermostats to control the temperature
-- Optional accessories like air purifiers, cleaners, humidifiers, etc.
Hybrid Heat Split Systems
A more advanced version of the traditional split system is the hybrid, which excels in improved efficacy and efficiency. A heat pump allows for the option of having electricity fuel the HVAC system instead of a gas furnace.
-- The heat pump heats or cools the refrigerant
-- Utilizes a furnace and an evaporator coil
-- Ducts channel air
-- Control panels and/or thermostats
-- Optional accessories for indoor air quality improvement
Duct-Free Split Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
The duct-free system is an excellent choice for areas or buildings where a conventional system cannot work. Duct-free systems have the following elements:
-- A heat pump or air conditioner to heat/cool refrigerants
-- Compact fan coils
-- Wires and tubing
Packaged Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
When you have a house or business that isn't compatible with a duct system or larger units, a packaged heating and air conditioning system is your best bet. These units contain:
-- An air conditioner and heat pump combined with the evaporator and fan coil in one unit
-- A thermostat on the actual unit
-- Optional air quality accessories
