Heating and Cooling Options
Regardless of the type of heating and cooling system that you choose, most heating and cooling systems use the same basic equipment. Some of the most common equipment used in heating and cooling systems include:
- Central Air Conditioners – Air conditioners typically consist of an outdoor part and an indoor part that use a condenser, a compressor, and an evaporator coil to cool the air entering your home. A blower is then used to push the cooled air throughout your home using a duct system.

- Furnaces – Furnaces deliver heat to your home through a duct system. Furnaces use gas, oil, propane, or electricity to generate heat by burning the gas, oil or propane or by running electricity through a coil.
