How Your HVAC Packaged System Works
Many Richmond Hill homeowners actually have a HVAC packaged system working in their house and don’t know it. They’re quite common because they are more affordable in the longrun, plus run efficiently.
Types of Packaged Units
The compressor, coils, air handler are all housed in a single-boxed cabinet. The packaged air conditioner can also provide limited warmth by using an electrical strip heating.
A packaged heat pump uses heat pump technology to cool and heat your home.
The packaged gas-electric unit combines an air conditioner with gas-powered furnace performance.
The packaged dual fuel system contains a heat pump, capable of heating and cooling, as well as a gas furnace. This type of packaged system optimizes the heating source for the conditions.
Operation depends on configuration, but packaged systems typically heat and cool your home the same way their stand-alone counterparts do. The ducting with a single cabinet system is slightly different, however, which is why its best if a professional from JD Mohler takes a look at it. The main difference is that the ductwork is attached to the system rather than connecting to various components in your home.
• By using electricity as its power source, your unit’s internal components cycle the refrigerant.
• Warm air is pulled in by a fan and then passes over the cold evaporator coil, cooling it in the process.
• The cooled, dehumidified air is pushed through ducts to the various spaces inside your home.
Because the compressor-bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning.
Package System Heating Component
In addition to the typical cooling feature associated with an air conditioner, packaged air conditioners are capable of producing limited heat with heat strip elements. With electricity as the fuel source, the heat strips are warmed, and the air is heated as it flows over the strips.The warm air then travels through ducting to increase the interior temperature of your home. This type of heating component is mainly used in warmer climates where heat is only used occasionally.
The heat pump transfers heat by reversing the refrigeration cycle used by a typical air conditioner. Through a cycle of evaporation and condensation, the indoor coils are heated, and the air is pushed over the warm coils. From there, the warmed air is blown through the ductwork to increase the temperature in the interior rooms of your home.
The heating component of a packaged gas-electric system is a gas furnace. The heating portion of the system uses natural gas or propane to combust inside the heat exchanger, creating heat. As cool air from the interior spaces is pulled in through the return ducting, the blower motor then blows the air over and through the hot heat exchanger, heating the air. The warm air is then circulated throughout the home through the ductwork.
Your dual-fuel packaged system has two heating options, a heat pump or a gas furnace. When installed and configured correctly, your dual fuel system can determine whether it’s more economical to heat your home using electricity or gas. When moderate heating is required, the heat pump automatically reverses from the air condition mode to provide warm air. When temperatures fall further, the system uses the gas furnace to provide reliable, consistent heat.
The temperature control, which is regulated by the furnace control board, turns on the ignition switch and starts the heating process when the thermostat or control system calls for heat.
When the thermostat or control system calls for heat, the gas burners valves are open to deliver gas and burn fuel.
The part of a gas furnace that adds heat to the indoor air. The gas combusts inside the heat exchanger, creating heat that is used to heat the passing air. The design of the heat exchanger can add energy efficient operation of a gas furnace.
Uses the return venting to blow air over the hot heat exchanger. The conditioned air is then sent throughout your home via ductwork. Some furnace models offer a blower fan that can run at multiple speeds to improve efficiency.
The draft induced fan draws air into the burner assembly. The air also allows the burners to warm the heat exchanger then is exhausted outside of the home.
Gas flows over the igniter to establish a flame. This flame is drawn through the burners and used to heat the heat exchanger.
Draws air into the burner assembly. The air allows the burners to warm the heat exchanger.
A flue or chimney acts as an exhaust for gaseous by-products of combustion used to create heat.
Unlike split-system units, all components of a complete heating and cooling system are contained in one location, making packaged units ideal for situations in which indoor space is at a premium.
All Goodman® brand packaged units offer 13 SEER or higher cooling performance. Our packaged gas/electric units offer 80% AFUE heating performance, as well.
