What Type of HVAC System is Right For Your Home

JD Service Now

When it comes to choosing a new HVAC system, it can be difficult to know which one is the right fit for your home. There are a variety of factors to consider, like the size of your home, the amount of money you want to invest in a new system, and the level of system maintenance. In this blog post, our JD experts will help you find the perfect system that meets all your home’s needs. Let’s dive in!

Split System

A split system HVAC unit is a popular choice for many homes because it is a reliable, efficient, and relatively low investment. It consists of two components: an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor air handler, which are connected through copper refrigerant lines. The outdoor condenser unit works to cool the air, while the indoor air handler circulates it throughout the home. The biggest benefit of a split system HVAC is that it can be used to both heat and cool your home. This makes it perfect for homes in climates that experience all four seasons. In addition, split systems are also incredibly energy efficient. Split systems require maintenance annually to ensure efficient and healthy operation for the components and the air in your home. Our JD technicians have the skills to ensure your system is running efficiently and safely by cleaning the indoor and outdoor components. Additionally, split systems aren’t recommended for larger homes, as they may not have enough power to effectively cool the entire space.

Dual Fuel System

A dual fuel system is a combination of two HVAC systems working together. The most common type of dual fuel system consists of an air source heat pump and a furnace. This setup allows for the home to be heated with the furnace during colder months, and then the heat pump can take over when the temperatures become milder. The main benefit of a hybrid system is that it can provide energy efficiency in both warm and cold climates. The heat pump is able to draw heat from outside and transfer it indoors to provide warmth, while the furnace can provide extra heating as needed. Dual Fuel systems can also help homeowners save money on their monthly energy bills since they don’t have to run their furnaces as often or have high electrical bills from running traditional electric heat found in heat pumps. The main downside of a dual fuel system is the initial investment. These systems involve two components, which can be more expensive than a single system depending on which one you choose.

Ductless System

A ductless HVAC system is a popular choice for those looking to save energy, reduce their carbon footprint, and add comfort to their home. This type of system is often referred to as a mini-split system because it is composed of an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor units, which are connected by copper tubing instead of ducts. The advantages of a ductless HVAC system are numerous. First, they offer incredible flexibility when it comes to heating and cooling individual rooms. They are also known for their high-efficiency ratings and can be tailored to a home’s unique needs. Depending on the application, they can cool or heat an entire house at once, or they can be placed in one unit in each room or area. You may need to invest in multiple units to heat or cool different areas of your home. However, that means each room has its own dedicated system, so you can make each room a different temperature, or shut down a room completely when not in use, like a guest room Ultimately, a ductless system can be a great choice for those looking to control the temperature of individual rooms without sacrificing comfort or efficiency.

Packaged System

A packaged system is a single unit that contains all of the components of a traditional HVAC system. It usually consists of an air conditioner, heater, and fan all in one unit. These systems are often installed outdoors as they can take up considerable space. The benefit of a packaged system is that it’s easy to install since all the components are already housed in one unit. Additionally, because the components are located outdoors, it helps reduce noise levels inside the home. On the other hand, a packaged system is not ideal for every home. Since all the components are in one place, if something goes wrong with one part, the whole system will need to be inspected. Additionally, depending on the type of package system you choose, it may not be as energy efficient as a split system.

The type of HVAC system that is right for your home depends on a variety of factors. Split systems are the most common, as they provide excellent temperature control in both heating and cooling modes. Hybrid systems can provide even better efficiency, while ductless and packaged systems may be suitable for specific situations. By considering your home’s needs, design, and layout, our JD team will work with you to determine the best option to keep your family comfortable year-round.
