What Is A System

There are many different types of systems that can make your home a comfortable oasis. Let the professionals show you just how everything fits together.

A professionally installed heating and cooling system can come in several different configurations. Typically, a system requires an air conditioner or heat pump outside your home and a furnace or air handler in your home.

SPLIT SYSTEM

The most common type of system. In this configuration, an indoor unit such as a furnace or air handler works in tandem with an outdoor unit such as an air conditioner or heat pump. Together, they circulate cool air throughout your home in the summer, and warm air in the winter.

SYSTEMS WITH COMFORT SYNC

In a system with a Comfort Sync communicating thermostat, all components work together through an electronic connection. As the central brain of this setup, Comfort Sync adjusts the amount of heating and cooling produced, while changing airspeed and temperature in varying increments to preserve ideal indoor conditions.

DUAL-FUEL SYSTEM

One that pairs an electric heat pump with a gas furnace. Because it can use either gas or electricity to keep you warm, your system will automatically switch to whichever fuel is most efficient for the weather.

PACKAGED UNITS

An entire home heating and cooling system in one; the furnace and either heat pump or air conditioner are contained in a single unit that handles both heating and cooling.
