Split HVAC Systems
A split system is an HVAC unit that has both an outdoor section (the condensing unit) stored in an attic, mechanical room, or garage, and an indoor section (air handling unit) that connect with each other by refrigerant tubing, so they’re “split” because they’re separate from each other but connected.
Here is what the indoor section has:
- A fan
- A filter
- A heating section
- Indoor cooling coil
The outdoor section contains:
- The compressor
- The condenser
These units are typically installed in residential areas, including houses and apartments, and small businesses.
They have the best possible EER rating of any heating and air condition unit on the market today; which means that the better the rating that you have on you HVAC unit, the more money you will save in the long run, because you will have bought the unit that uses less energy to perform.
Although there are many brands that we can and will install, we typically install Trane, Carrier, Amana and Daikin for their quality and endurance.
There are many benefits to having a split system installed into your home. One benefit is that your unit is easily maintained by the simple access for either repairing or periodic cleaning, and they have washable filters that don’t have to be cleaned as often as some units. Also, the design is looks a lot better than units that are installed in windows that devalue the property and the efficiency of heating and air distribution.
