What is a System?

What’s a system?

There are many different types of systems that can make your home, and your life, more comfortable. Here’s how everything works together.

When your AirEase® dealer builds your system, they’ll help you choose from a variety of configurations based on your climate and your needs. A typical system includes an air conditioner or a heat pump outside, and a furnace or air handler inside, all controlled by a thermostat.

The Pro Series™. Your environment, your way, every day.

The Pro Series™ from AirEase takes control to a whole new level. Every Pro Series system is built from the best-performing heating, cooling and air quality equipment in the AirEase lineup. So you get more in every way. More precise temperatures. More control. More healthy air. And more control over your energy costs, with air conditioners that are up to twice as efficient as conventional systems and gas furnaces that squeeze more heat out of every dollar.

Split System

The most common type of system. In this configuration, an indoor unit such as an air handler or furnace works in tandem with an outdoor unit that is either an air conditioner or heat pump. Together, they circulate cool air throughout your home in the summer, and warm air in the winter.

Mini-Splits System

When traditional ducted systems aren’t practical, mini-splits systems are a cost-effective heating and cooling solution. Mini-splits can be used in homes that do not have existing ductwork, when expanding your home's footprint or when rooms suffer from hot or cold spots.

Systems with Comfort Sync™

In a system with a Comfort Sync® A3 communicating thermostat, all components work together through an electronic connection for greater performance and efficiency. As the central brain in your system, Comfort Sync adjusts the amount of heating and cooling the system creates, while monitoring and adjusting airspeed and temperature in small increments to preserve the exact environment you want.

Dual-Fuel system

When a heat pump is paired with a gas furnace, it creates a system that can use either gas or electricity to keep you warm. Your system will automatically switch back and forth between the two for maximum energy efficiency.

Package units

A package unit is an entire home heating and cooling system in one. The furnace and either heat pump or air conditioner are contained in a single unit.
