Understanding Your HVAC System: What Are the Different Kinds?

Understanding Your HVAC System: What Are the Different Kinds?

Want to get a new HVAC system in your home, but not sure what works best for you? There are numerous types of HVAC systems that may work for your situation. Unfortunately, not many individuals are sure what fits their home and their needs in order to reach the optimal temperature. Here are some things you may want to consider when purchasing a new HVAC system.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps can come in multiple types including dual fuel, air-to-air, and more. This type of HVAC system pumps heat from the cool outdoors into your home during winter, and moves the heat from your cool home outdoors during the summer. They don’t generate heat. Instead, they move heat. These can come in high-efficiency forms to help you save money in the long run.

Heating and Air Conditioning Split System

These are the most common and classic of HVAC systems. They typically have the air conditioner which cools the refrigerant, as well as the furnace and fan to convert the refrigerant. They go through the same ducts and are controlled by the same thermostat to adjust the temperature in the home.

Packaged Heating and Air Conditioning

When a home or office space can’t adequately house all of the components that a split system offers, a packaged HVAC system is the popular choice. The air and heat pump work together in one unit and are controlled by the same thermostat. These systems also allow for optional improves such as air purifiers or cleaners.

Duct-Free Split Heating and Air Conditioning

There are some locations where ducts are not easily installed, so a duct-free HVAC system is the most popular for these individuals. Duct-free HVAC systems have a compact fan coil, wires and tubing for the refrigerant, and can include optional accessories for air cleaning in the home.
