Types of Heating and Cooling Systems:
Central Cooling System: A central cooling system means that you have an air handler in one central location in your home and ductwork is used to distribute air evenly to all rooms in the home.
Split System: In this central cooling system, there is an outdoor unit that contains a condenser coil and compressor. Within the home, there is an indoor evaporator coil that is combined with your furnace or air handler.
Packaged System: Some central cooling systems are part of a packaged air conditioning unit. In this case, the condenser coil, compressor, and air handler or furnace are all contained within one case. Packaged units are usually located on the side of a house or on the roof.
A gas burning central furnace utilizes a heat exchanger and a blower motor together, within a cabinet. Gas is ignited on the inside of the heat exchanger and burns to a warm temperature. Air is then circulated over the outside of the heat exchanger by the blower motor and that warm air is distributed through your ducts into your home.
Heat pumps are considered a form of electric heat—they utilize a compressor, outdoor coil with fan, indoor coil, and a blower motor. A heat pump is an air conditioner with the ability to reverse its refrigerant flow, thus extracting whatever heat is available outside and discharging this heat throughout your house (utilizing your duct system). When comparing a heat pump versus a gas furnace, the cost per BTU is almost equal.
When should you replace your HVAC system?
- If it is more than 10-15 years old, a new higher efficiency system could reduce your bills.
- If your HVAC system has never seemed to keep up on the hotter days, it might be undersized or poorly designed for your home.
- If there is a big temperature difference between upstairs and downstairs, a newer system will be more effective and efficient.
- If you are having repairs to your air conditioner every year, it might be time to replace it.
