The Different Types of Air Conditioners
Split Air Conditioners
These units are a step up from window units in both capacity and efficiency and designed for small to midsized rooms. They come in both wall and floor mounted models. Though smaller in size than their larger counterparts, split AC units contain the same basic components, such as a compressor, expansion valve, and condenser. Split units are divided into two units (not surprising considering the name): With one facing inside the home and the other facing outside.
Packaged Air Conditioners
Packaged air conditioners are meant for larger spaces than window or split units accommodate. The unit's compressor can be either air or watered cooled and runs smoother and quieter than many similar units in the same size category. They are effectively efficient units featuring variable speed controls and they cost comparably less than other types of air conditioners in their class.
Central Air Conditioners
The majority of homes in the United States are equipped with central air conditioning systems. These units use an indoor air handler (AHU), responsible for drawing air in from throughout the home into the air return ducts. From there, the air then flows into an evaporator coil where it is cooled and returned back into the homes living space via an air duct system. Central air conditioner systems are designed for use in residential homes, and commercial buildings of all sizes.
Rooftop Air Conditioner
A rooftop air conditioning unit is pretty much utilized just how it sounds, mounted on a rooftop. These systems are used on top of commercial buildings or flat-roofed residential buildings, generally in metropolitan areas.
