Package Air Conditioning Unit
Package units are unique, all-in-one systems that supply both cooling and heating equipment in one “package.” These units sit on the ground or rooftop outside of your home or business. Package units come in three forms: Packaged heat pumps offer heating and cooling using heat pump technology. Packaged air conditioners cool your home and can heat it as well, using electrical strip heat. Packaged gas-electric units offer all-in-one air conditioning and natural gas-powered furnace performance.
Benefits Of Package Unit Air Conditioning
Space efficiency – Unlike split-system units, all components of a complete heating and cooling system are contained in one location, making package units ideal for situations in which indoor space is at a premium.
Energy-efficient heating and cooling performance – All Amana package units offer 13 SEER or higher cooling performance. Our package gas/electric units offer 80% AFUE heating performance, as well.
Mini-Split AC Installation
A mini split system is a type of air conditioner that works without the use of a central system of duct work. It is comprised of two separate components, including an outdoor compressor and an indoor evaporator/fan unit. The two units are connected by a conduit that contains electrical wiring, refrigerant lines and condensate tubing. The evaporator unit fits inside of a slim case that mounts within the room that needs to be air conditioned. It may be ceiling or wall-mounted, and can be set on the surface of these structures or recessed into the drywall. The outdoor unit can be placed anywhere outside of the home as long as it’s within 50 feet of the evaporator. Depending on its size and weight, it may be set on a concrete pad or directly on the ground.
To understand how the science behind how an air conditioning condenser works, it’s helpful to think of it not as cooling the air but removing the heat from the air. Outside at the compressor and condenser plant, the heat removal or cooling process begins with refrigerant flowing into the compressor as cool gas. The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant and what was a gas becomes a hot liquid. The now-hot liquid refrigerant flows into the condenser which is made up of groupings of long hollow coils filled with the hot liquid. The condenser allows heat to escape from the refrigerant via multiple fin-like vents in the condenser casing so when the refrigerant reaches the end of these coils, it is markedly cooler and in liquid form but still under pressure. With this pressure, the refrigerant is forced into a tiny valve and escapes the condenser in a fine mist. The refrigerant mist begins to evaporate while flowing through another set of hollow coils. This evaporating action draws heat out of the air surrounding the coils, thereby cooling it. The ACor jointly used furnace fan blows air across the the coils that reduces the air temperature and that cooled air is blown into the ducts and vents of the house.
