A central air conditioning system (or heat pump) is either a split system or a packaged unit. The vast majority of homeowners currently use the standard split system to heat and/or cool their homes.
A split-system central air conditioner essentially has 3 components:
- An outdoor metal cabinet that houses the condenser and compressor units
- An indoor cabinet that contains the evaporative coil
- An air handler that, in most cases, is part of the furnace or heat pump, which sends conditioned air through the ducting system to all areas of the home
If your home already has a warm air furnace, then you can, in most cases, easily add split-system central air conditioning. Air conditioning companies and consumers alike know the benefits, because it’s the most economical solution for your cooling requirements. This installation would use the outside condensing unit and your current furnace blower to push cool air through the existing ductwork. Air conditioning companies would install an add-on air conditioning evaporative coil in the plenum of the furnace to pull heat out of the home and replace it with cooler de-humidified air, making the home more comfortable during hot, humid summer months.
