System Type and Design in Clarksville, IN, Jeffersonville, IN, Louisville, KY and the Metro Region
The vast majority of homes have a forced air system, meaning they have equipment with a blower and ductwork to deliver the air. There are two basic types of forced air systems, either a split system where you have a unit indoors and a unit outdoors, or a package unit where the entire system is outdoors. The split system is by far the most common type. The most common type of split system is a gas furnace with air conditioning. The most affordably priced, high efficiency system is a dual fuel/hybrid system with a gas furnace indoors and a heat pump outdoors. The most efficient, readily available type of system is a geothermal system, but the installation cost makes this extremely uncommon. A final relevant category of system types is the non-ducted mini-split system or the through the wall unit. Both of these are frequently seen as solutions to additions or second floor conditioning problems.
