AC Split System is a combination of an indoor air handling unit and an outdoor condensing unit connected to the inside cooling coil, the compressor pumps refrigerant back and forth, extracting heat and moisture from the indoors. It transfers the heat to the outdoors. Warm indoor air is blown over the indoor cooling coil, then is cooled and distributed throughout your home.
The Air Handler matched in capacity and efficiency rating with the air conditioner, air handlers circulate conditioned air throughout your home. An air handler contains an inside coil and a blower fan, with the additional possibility of an auxiliary electric strip heater. Trane air handlers are available with single- or variable-speed motors. Variable-speed models are known for soft starts, high humidity control features and 12 selectable levels of airflow capacity, as well as the enhanced comfort mode, the Comfort-R™ airflow system.
The Condensing unit consists of a compressor and a condenser coil. Split-systems are typically found in residential or small commercial applications. These systems have the highest energy efficiency rating (EER) of all the available Air Conditioning systems.
Manufacturers are required to take the EER rating a step further and provide a seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) for use by consumers. SEER ratings vary widely and range from 13 to 22. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the AC system operates.
