Secondly there is the hybrid system which is also a traditional system. However it is considered to be more efficient when considering usage of energy. In addition the property of switching fuelling sources not only saves you money but also conserves energy. It performs the same function as gas furnace when fitted with a heat pump.
The parts of the hybrid split system includes refrigerant, pump, furnace and evaporator coils. More so the system will be installed with ducts which will channel air all round the compartments.
Unfortunately not all system uses the duct units to channel air. These systems vary in shape and size. Thus are ideal in places where ducts cannot be installed. Consequently require the list repairs and their maintenance is also minimal. Therefore, the following are the main components which comprise duct free system.
- Heat pump that facilitate in cooling or heating up the refrigerant
- A compact fan coil
- Wires and tubes that connect the fun coil to the outside unit
- Finally the thermostat which in other words is known as the control panel
Packaged heating and Air system
Lastly we have the packaged HVAC system which is designed for the small spaced compartments or a small office. This system contains all the featured components of an air conditioner in one unit. In addition it comprises of heat pump with a fan coil and a thermostat all integrated into one system.
In conclusion it has both air conditioner and heating on one system. Furthermore it is easy to install and as a result saves on space and money.
From the above types of HVAC system we can conclude that the repairs vary with each type. Therefore, it is usually important to know the most ideal system for you. I addition the more you know about the system the easier it will be to maintain.
