For the Home
Your central air conditioning system consists of two main parts—an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, or air handler. The air handler is an important part of your air conditioning equipment. Its job is to effectively circulate conditioned air throughout your home. When matched with a heat pump, it circulates both cool and hot air, depending on the season.
You’re looking at the best you can buy in an air conditioner. A step up in design, technology and efficiency – saving you money, as well as headaches. When purchasing a new air conditioning system, there are many factors to consider.
Selecting an air conditioner for your home is a big decision. It’s an important investment today. It will play a key role in your home energy expenses for years to come. And when the summer heat is at its worst, you’ll want your family to have the best, most reliable cooling comfort possible.
Cooling coils are high performance fin tube coils for use with water, glycol, or direct expansion refrigerant. Options include single or multi-row feed, fully drainable, cleanable, multiple tube thickness, and infinitely variable fin spacing (IVS) for selection economy.
The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating by as much as 30%–40%. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months.
These days, home owners search for all the value they can find in every household purchase they make. You’re probably no different. So when the time comes to replace a furnace in an existing central heating system, or to install a totally new system, you want equipment that minimizes costs and delivers dependable office comfort for your family – season after season.
For the optimal combination of gas heating and impressive energy efficiency, choose a precision-engineered gas furnaces. The higher the AFUE rating, the more energy efficient—meaning you’ll save more money.
Condensing units are familiar temperature-control devices in refrigerators, air conditioners, heat pumps and chillers. They move energy in the form of heat by compressing a gas known as a “refrigerant,” then pumping it through a system of coils and using the air around the coils to heat and cool spaces. Electronic controls, fans, pumps and coils manage the condenser’s work.
In a packaged unit air conditioning system the compressor, condenser, and evaporator are all located in one self contained unit, which usually is located on the ground or a roof top. Package air conditioners are normally used for mobile homes, homes on a crawl space, and residential and commercial roof tops. Supply and return air ducts come from indoors through the home’s exterior wall or roof to connect with the package air conditioner system, which is usually located outdoors.
Commercial Rooftop packaged units (or RTUs) house all of the components in a self-contained metal cabinet. They are installed on top of commercial roofs and range in size from 1 ton to over 100 tons, and can therefore be suitably matched to any building floor space size for maximum efficiency.
