Q. What is variable speed?

Variable-speed indicates that the fan blower in your air handler or furnace can operate at different capacities in order to provide the best control over your temperatures. In addition, these fan blowers save money because they take less energy to run. Variable-speed blowers are often used in the most efficient HVAC equipment.

Q. What is two-stage?

Instead of having an HVAC system that always kicks-on at 100% capacity, a two-stage HVAC system can operate at high-capacity (100%) and low capacity (70%). A two-stage system can save you money because it has the ability to operate at the lower capacity and consume less energy.

Q. What is a split system?

When installing your new air conditioner or heat pump you can opt for a split or packaged system. Split systems contain two components – an indoor component and an outdoor/condensing unit. When you think of an air conditioner, you are probably thinking of a split-system air conditioner.

Q. What is a heat pump?

Heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that provides both heating and cooling power. A heat pump works like an air conditioner when it is hot outside in order to cool your home, and, when it gets colder, your heat pump reverses this process to provide exceptional heating capabilities.
