Heating & Cooling Systems

The type of system that will work best for you depends on your geographical location, the size and physical characteristics of your home, and the way you use it.

Split Systems

A split system is the most common type of heating and cooling. The indoor unit (furnace) is used as the heat source, while the air conditioning unit resides outdoors and supports the cooling needs of the home. This type of system offers consistent, reliable cooling and heating for the entire home as well as indoor air quality through the use of filters inside the furnace.

Benefits Of A Hybrid AC Split System

Hybrid Systems

A hybrid system consisting of a heat pump provides both heating and cooling but with greater efficiency. It is typically paired with either a gas furnace or an electric air handler. A Heat Pump works just like an air conditioner when it’s cooling (they both move heat from inside the home to an outdoor location). A heat pump, however, has a reversing valve that allows it to absorb heat energy from outside air (yes, even in cold temperatures) and sends it indoors, thus supporting the heating effort for the home as well. On extra cold days, the gas furnace becomes the primary heat source to ensure maximum comfort is maintained. It’s an energy and fuel-saving solution.

Ductless Systems

Ductless systems allow you to heat and/or cool your home without invasive ductwork. They offer quiet operation, compact design and require minimal installation. Both Heat Pump and A/C solutions offer flexibility whether you’re looking to create your comfort zone in one room or multiple rooms.
Ductless systems deliver cooling and/or heating to specific, targeted areas within the home. The installation is less invasive and can be less expensive because they don't rely on ductwork to distribute air. Ductless systems have an outdoor unit connected through a small hole to a compact wall-mounted unit indoors. Each indoor unit is designed to provide warm or cool air only for the room in which it is installed. The indoor unit can be installed on a wall, in the ceiling, or on the floor. Ductless systems are available for small spaces, such as one or two rooms, and can also be expanded to create up to 8 separate climate zones in your home.
These flexible systems deliver pinpointed comfort in the areas where indoor units are placed. They also act as a zoning system by offering individual temperature control over each separate room. For example, if you want a cooler home office but a warmer bedroom, install a ductless unit in each room. Now you can set different temperatures in each area depending on your comfort needs and a wireless remote makes it easy to stay at your ideal comfort. Not only are these units generally very energy efficient, but they also give you a much more refined level of control than you would have with a traditional duct-based system.

Heating and cooling systems come in Single-Stage, Two-Stage, and Multi-Stage options representing the levels at which they operate.

A Single stage unit means its operating speed is either on or off.
A Two-stage unit means it operates on either high or low. The low setting is adequate to meet most household comfort demands about 80% of the time, providing even temperatures. On hotter days, it can leverage the high level of operation to maintain comfort levels. Two stage systems are typically quieter and more efficient than a single stage unit.
A Multi-stage unit has a range of operation and therefore the most precise temperature control and best comfort. These variable speed units are the quietest and offer the most energy savings.
