Types of Heating and Cooling Systems

Air Conditioning RepairThe perfect system for your home depends on several factors, including the physical specifications of your home. Whichever innovative products you and your Flare consultant select, there are 4 primary types of heating and cooling systems: split systems, hybrid heat split systems, duct-free split systems and packaged systems.

Split Systems

The most typical and traditional heating and cooling systems are split systems. With a split system, you have products that reside both inside and outside your home. A split system includes:

  • Air Conditioner—Cools refrigerant

  • Furnace and Evaporator Coil, or a Fan Coil—Converts refrigerant and circulates air

  • Ducts—Carry the air throughout your home

  • Control or Thermostat—Your interface for controlling your system

  • Optional Air Quality Accessories such as Air Cleaners or Ventilators—Clean your air before it circulates throughout your home.

Hybrid Heat Split System

A hybrid heat split system is a more energy-efficient variation of the traditional heating and cooling split system. The inclusion of a heat pump allows the option of electricity-fueled heating and cooling, in addition to gas furnace heat. A hybrid heat split system includes:

  • Heat Pump — Cools and/or heats refrigerant

  • Furnace and Evaporator Coil — Converts refrigerant and circulates air

  • Ducts — Carry the air throughout your home

  • Control or Thermostat — Your interface for controlling your system

  • Optional Air Quality Accessories such as Air Cleaners or Ventilators — Clean your air before it circulates throughout your home.

Duct-Free Split Systems

Duct-free systems can be installed in places where conventional ducted systems cannot go, or are an ideal complement to your ducted system. Duct-free systems offer a matched combination of:

  • Heat Pump or Air Conditioner—Cools and/or heats refrigerant

  • A Compact Fan Coil—Converts refrigerant and circulates air

  • Refrigerant Tubing and Wires—Connects outdoor unit to fan coil

  • Control or Thermostat—Your interface for controlling your system

  • Optional Air Quality Accessories such as Air Cleaners or Ventilators — Clean your air before it circulates throughout your home.

Packaged Systems

If your home does not have the space for the multiple separate products typically found in a split system, we offer several packaged solutions. From one-room units to entire home systems in a single package, we have a variety of options, including:

  • Packaged Products — A heat pump or air conditioner combined with a fan or evaporator coil in a single unit. All you need is a control or thermostat and any air quality accessories you’d like. Packaged Systems may be located on the exterior of your home either on the rooftop or in the yard.
