Packaged systems are popular in certain regions, where construction techniques favor a single cabinet for most components rather than a split system, which has both an outdoor and an indoor unit. Typically, packaged units are installed outdoors at ground level, in a crawl space, or they may be installed on the roof for horizontal or down-flow designs. Available in the same configuration and utilizing the same components as split systems, packaged units also offer a variety of efficiency options.
Split System Heat Pump
A split system heat pump is an air conditioning, ventilation, and heat pump system that uses refrigerant as the heat exchange fluid and has an evaporator, compressor, and condenser as separate components. The typical residential central air conditioning system is a split system. The compressor and condenser are combined into a single condensing unit, mounted outdoors. The evaporator, a finned coil, is mounted in the air handler indoors. Two flexible refrigerant lines, one for gas and one for liquid, connect the components. According to a study prepared for the National Renewable Energy Lab, in the Department of Energy, retrofitting older systems with more efficient, split systems is cost-effective and conserves energy.
A gas furnace is the component of a heating and air conditioning system that converts natural gas or propane into heat. Different furnaces work in different ways, but basically, all gas furnaces convert fuel into a flame that heats up a heat exchanger. When that exchanger reaches a manufacturer set point, or a target range of temperatures, a blower that’s built into the furnace starts up and blows air across the heat exchanger, which in turns heats the air before distributing it through the ductwork.
