A split HVAC system is what most people have in their houses. It’s what you’re using to heat or cool your house. The reason why it’s called a split is that it’s two parts.

You’re going to have your outdoor unit, which is called a condenser or a heat pump, depending on what you’re using to cool or heat your house. And the inside part would be an air handler or a furnace.

The air you feel coming out of your registers will be coming from your indoor unit. The outdoor unit is where the compressor is, and it’s the heart of the unit. That’s what’s pumping the refrigerant throughout your whole system, and how you cool your house during the summer.

Back in the day, there used to be floor heaters. You didn’t have a fan or anything like that. It would just be literally somewhere in the floor of your house. There are also homeowners that use window units. That would be something that you can get at any big box store.

In the States, most people use a split system to heat and cool their home. If you have any questions about your HVAC options, you can always call the On Time Experts at 469-336-3435.
