Today's air conditioners provide more comfort and efficiency than ever. Whatever size your home, whenever you need cool, comfortable, cleaner air, we're dedicated to providing the very best investment you can make for your family. What does that mean for you and your family? It means you'll enjoy complete comfort on the hottest days of the year and lower your cooling costs at the same time.
Cool your home with highly efficient air conditioners.
A traditional Air Conditioning system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. The outdoor condenser unit releases the heat the refrigerant picks up inside the home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together.
When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life. Air conditioning and cooling efficiency is measured using a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). A higher SEER rating means higher energy efficiency.
A furnace works to keep a home warm in the winter and plays a critical part in the operation of an air conditioning system. Furnaces produce heat through the combustion of natural gas in the furnace's burner. The heat produced from this process then passes through a heat exchanger. Air from your home's return air ducts is blown over the heat exchanger, thus warming the air.
Providing year-round performance for home comfort, heat pumps are a great solution for your home comfort system. That’s because they work to provide both heating and cooling. Whether it’s the hottest day of the summer, or the coldest day of winter, heat pumps work day in and day out to keep your family in premium comfort.
An air handler, or air handling unit (often abbreviated to AHU), is a device used to condition and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Usually, an air handler is a large metal box containing a blower, heating and/or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to ductwork that distributes the conditioned air through the building, and returns it to the AHU. Sometimes AHUs discharge (supply) and admit (return) air directly to and from the space served, without ductwork.
The furnace's blower then blows the warmed air into the ductwork, which carries and disperses the warmed air throughout the home. During warmer months, the blower inside a furnace continues to circulate return air throughout the home--only this time, the return air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor coil portion of the home's split-system air conditioning system. The condensing coil is typically installed on top of the furnace.
Year-round, energy-efficient indoor comfort for moderate climates. A central heat pump helps maintain comfortable temperatures inside your home and reduces humidity levels year-round. Homes located in regions with severely cold temperatures may either require supplemental heating or be better served with an air conditioner/furnace combination.
