Split System Air Conditioner
First let’s talk about the split system air conditioning unit. A split system there are three different components to the system. You have an outdoor metal cabinet that houses the condenser and the compressor; an indoor cabinet that contains the evaporator coil; and an air handler that sends the cool air through the duct system. Split systems will need to be installed very carefully. If all of the parts are not properly connected you unit will not work effectively or efficiently. In the long run split systems are typically more efficient than packaged units. Split systems also have a longer lifespan that packaged units.
Packaged Air Conditioning Unit
A packaged air conditioning unit has everything all located in one place. They are usually placed on the roof or on a concrete slab next to your home. They are used in homes and small commercial buildings. The air supply and return ducts connect from the inside of your home to the unit through the home’s exterior wall or roof. Packaged units include the parts needed to both and heat cool your home. Packaged air conditioning units are easier to install than a split system air conditioning unit. Since everything comes in one part there is not a large chance of error in installation. The cost of installation on a packaged air conditioning unit will be cheaper than the cost of installation for a split system unit. Packaged units are not as efficient as split systems and they do not last as long.
