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.
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.
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.
