Practically a miracle worker, your HVAC system keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and it also helps to safeguard your indoor air quality. Running your HVAC system can be expensive, especially if the system is old, rundown, or in need of repair. Because of that, it’s essential to ensure you have the right system for your needs. Here’s a look at just a few of the many options.
Dual HVAC Systems
Also called a zoned HVAC system, these setups split your home into several different areas, and each one has a mini HVAC system dedicated just to that area. This type of system is ideal for residential and commercial buildings that have different heating and cooling needs in different areas.
That can be due to different levels of insulation, lots of windows, because you don’t use one space as much, or in multiple other situations.
Mini-Split HVAC Systems
This commercial or residential HVAC system is a type of dual or zoned system. However, it’s completely ductless. Each area or individual room has a small unit that is generally installed on the upper part of the wall.
Then, you get a unique thermostat for each unit so you can set different temperatures in different areas of your home or business.
Heating & Air Conditioning Split System
Not to be confused with the mini-split, this is the traditional type of HVAC equipment. Generally, it involves an air conditioner with the main unit that sits outside your home as well as a furnace that goes inside the home.
A single thermostat controls the system, and a fan blows the air through the ducts of your home or office building.
Dual Fuel HVAC Systems
HVAC costs can represent a significant part of your home or business expenses. As a result, you may want to look at a system that doesn’t just rely on electricity. In particular, a dual fuel heat pump is the hybrid of home heating and cooling.
It features an electric heat pump and a gas furnace. During the winter, the gas furnace keeps you warm and cozy, and during the summer, the electric-powered heat pump handles the cooling.
Packaged Heating, Cooling, & Ventilation Systems
Similar to a traditional system, the packaged option contains the heating and cooling equipment all in one package. This is ideal for residential and commercial applications where space is limited. With this type of system, you can opt for dual fuel, solar, electric, or other options, and there are lots of HVAC brands available.
