Types of central air conditioners
There are two types of central air conditioners:
- Split system
- Packaged unit.
In a split-system central air conditioner, an outdoor metal cabinet contains the condenser and compressor, and an indoor cabinet contains the evaporator. In many split-system air conditioners, this indoor cabinet also contains a furnace or an air handler. The air conditioner’s evaporator coil is installed in the cabinet or main supply duct of this furnace or heat pump. If your home already has a furnace but no air conditioner, a split system is the most economical central air conditioner to install.
In a packaged central air conditioner, the evaporator, condenser, and compressor are all located in one cabinet, which usually is placed on a roof or on a concrete slab next to the house’s foundation. Air supply and return ducts come from indoors through the home’s exterior wall or roof to connect with the packaged air conditioner, which is usually located outdoors. Packaged air conditioners often include electric heating coils or a natural gas furnace. This combination of air conditioner and central heater eliminates the need for a separate furnace indoors.
Benefits of a central air-conditioning system
- Indoor comfort during warm weather – Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
- Cleaner air – As your central air-conditioning system draws air out of the rooms in your house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to the rooms.
- Quieter operation – Because the compressor-bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air- conditioning unit.
High Quality air conditioners deliver efficiency and comfort
Exacting precision makes the highest quality air conditioners extremely quiet and most energy-efficient. Available with multi-stage and single-stage motors, they allow you to control cooling, humidity levels and energy use by matching output to demand. With industry-leading efficiencies of up to 26.00 SEER*, high end air conditioners can also save you hundreds of dollars in utility costs every year.
