It is very easy to take air quality for granted. However, there is a lot to know about the cooling and heating systems in your home or business premises. Therefore, if you want to know more, this HVAC 101 is the perfect place to start.

You apply significant thought when choosing your home or office décor. In the same way, you should also think carefully when choosing your heating and cooling system. To make the right choice you need to understand the different HVAC product configurations and choose the one that meets your needs perfectly. We at Dean Howard Heat & Air Inc. strive to work together with our valued clients to find the most effective system type.

The common HVAC system types we specialize in include:

  • • Split systems
  • • Hybrid heat split systems
  • • Ductless split systems
  • • Packaged systems
  • • Heat pump systems

A split system means that the HVAC system products will reside both outside and inside your home. Typically, a split system comprises of a furnace, heat pump or air conditioner, evaporator coil, ducts, thermostat, and optional air quality accessories. There are different configurations of split systems; therefore, we work together with our clients to find the system that best fits their requirements.

The hybrid heat split system is a more efficient version of the standard split system. Incorporating an energy–efficient twist, the system automatically figures out how to get the best efficiency by using an electric heat pump in addition to the gas furnace to provide warmth. As an added bonus, the electric heat pump can also functions as an air conditioner too. A typical hybrid heat system consists of a heat pump, evaporator coil, furnace, ducts, thermostat, and optional air quality accessories.

As the name suggests, a ductless split system heats or cools rooms or areas of your home or business premises that lack ductwork. Such systems do not rely on air ducts to transmit treated air. Ductless split systems include small heat pump unit or outdoor air conditioner, a compact indoor wall unit, remote control, and wire connections and refrigerant tubing.

If you live in a very small space or home, you can still enjoy the same improved air quality and comfort of a split system by using a packaged system. Although all packaged systems look alike, they can perform vastly different things. With this all–in– one unit, all you need is a thermostat and ductwork to transmit treated air.

Finally, the geothermal heat pump system works in the same way as an air conditioner but in winter, it does the reverse by drawing heat energy from the outside air. These systems tap into the moderate temperatures of the earth as opposed to the wide temperature fluctuations of outdoor air, which makes them very energy efficient.

We offer attractive seasonal rebates to clients who purchase a new heating and cooling system. In addition, clients can enjoy energy efficiency tax credits when they make a qualified purchase of a new energy–efficient heating and cooling system. We have a wide diversity of systems to choose from; therefore, call Dean Howard Heat & Air Inc, at (760) 559-8100 for more information.
