Split System Air Conditioning Replacement

At Extreme Air & Electric we deal a lot with ductless air conditioning, but what about our customers that have traditional split-system air conditioning?

The Difference Between Split-System AC & Ductless

In a split-system air conditioner there are outdoor and indoor parts that have to work together like a team to achieve the right temperature for your home. They need to work together in unison to be as efficient as possible.

In most cases your furnace and air conditioner are installed together and work together as a pair. There are outside and inside parts that have to work as a team to achieve the right temperature for your home.

There are four parts to your split-system:

  • Condenser
  • Compressor
  • Evaporator Coil
  • Air Handler

The condenser and compressor are outside and the evaporator coil and air handler are inside. The refrigerant moves between all these parts over and over until your home reaches the set temperature.

When something in your split-system breaks down it is important to get a certified technician to inspect the problem. You should consider replacing both inside and outside parts of your split-system if one breaks down. All these pieces are meant to be sold and used as matched sets, if you have mismatched pieces your system may not work correctly.

Talk to the technicians at Extreme Air & Electric about the options you have for replacing your split-system.
