What is a split air system?
Regardless of the name, split air systems do not split air. Rather, a split air system is a single air conditioning unit comprised of two pieces of equipment (hence the word “split”). One piece cools the air while the other warms it.
Split air systems use a heat pump or air conditioner to work their magic. The heat pump or AC is connected to an air handler. Pipes are relied upon to transfer refrigerant (freon, for example) between condenser and evaporator coils. The air handler – which houses a heat exchanger and evaporator coil – then disperses air throughout a home. The air conditioner also does this through a compressor and condenser coil. The split air system heats or cools air depending upon a thermostat’s set temperature.
What are some of the benefits of split air systems?
Split air systems are highly energy efficient. For one thing, they only turn on when necessary (in order to meet the desired pre-set temperature in a room or area). For another, their smaller fan systems typically use less electricity. Finally, a well-maintained split air system can work efficiently and effectively for up to 20 years.
