Gas Forced Air with a Split System Heat Pump (warm in winter, cool in summer)
Split System Heat Pump:
Similar to a split HVAC system, the split system heat pump has indoor and outdoor components that work together. On the exterior of the home is the compressor/condenser, which maintains the optimum rate of the refrigerant’s flow as well as increases the pressure of the refrigerant gas through compression. On the interior of the home is the air handler, which cycles and distributes the air. The two split components are connected by a protected conduit.
Split system heat pumps, unlike most conventional heat pump systems, are generally ductless. This allows for one of the split system’s great advantages. Many models of these systems allow for multiple indoor air handlers to be attached to a single outdoor condenser. Each of these indoor air handlers can be programmed by individual thermostats, thus keeping individual rooms at their own specific temperature. Being able to control specific rooms saves both money and energy.
Without a duct system, the heat pump makes up for the 30% of energy often lost among the duct work. Instead, the air is distributed directly from the air handler and into the room. Without the restrictions of a duct system, air handlers can be placed anywhere from the ceiling, the floor, or even on the wall, making them much more flexible in terms of design.
The split system heat pump redefines efficiency by getting rid of the duct system necessary in packaged heat pumps and conventional HVAC systems.
