3 Types of HVAC Systems

3 Types of HVAC Systems

During Sand Key, Florida, summers, you need an efficient, reliable home HVAC system to keep your family comfortable. Systems today come in many different types and sizes and the best choice for you depends on the size of your home and the equipment you already have. Discover the features of multi-stage, ductless, and packaged HVAC systems.

Multi-Stage Systems

Multi-stage or variable-speed systems use different levels of heating and cooling, unlike conventional, single-stage systems that continually run at full capacity. Since multi-stage systems adjust their fan speed, they stay on longer instead of constantly turning on and off to maintain the same temperature. This feature saves energy, does a better job of dehumidifying the air, and makes your home more comfortable.

Ductless Systems

Like central HVAC systems, ductless or mini-split systems have an outdoor compressor or condenser and one or more indoor air-handling units. Instead of ductwork, a small conduit connects these components.

Ductless systems don’t use closet, basement, or attic space like central systems and they are more efficient. In zoned versions, systems with more than one indoor unit have a thermostat for each unit, so you can control different areas or zones in your home independently for better comfort. Since you need to heat or cool only occupied areas, you can also save energy in the process.

Packaged Systems

All the parts of packaged HVAC systems are in one compact casing, and the systems come assembled from the factory. This packaging makes installation easier and faster. You can choose a packaged rooftop unit, a wall-mounted unit, or a window unit.

Packaged systems also come in several sizes, and they work well in small homes or large businesses. If you have more than one unit, you can control separate zones, similar to ductless systems.
