This video takes a look at the most common home HVAC system: Furnace and air conditioning split systems, also known simply as split systems.
We'll walk you through what these systems are and how they work. There's a good chance that your home has a split system, so it's important to understand how your ac unit and furnace work together to heat and cool your home.
What is a split system?
These central heating and cooling systems are called split systems for the simple fact that they use both indoor and outdoor equipment, as opposed to an all-in-one packaged unit that sits outside. In a split HVAC system, the outdoor unit contains air conditioner condenser and the compressor. The outdoor and indoor systems are linked by a copper refrigerant line set which transfers cool air inside the home. Posted 10/16/2019
