Central Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

Product Information 

Central air conditioners and heat pumps include split system central air conditioners and heat pumps, single package central air conditioners and heat pumps, small-duct high-velocity products, and space constrained products. They are installed as part of an indoor climate control system. They may or may not use ducts to distribute cooled or dehumidified air to more than one room.  Some ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are configured as split systems and are commonly referred to as mini-splits or multi-splits. Due to their configuration as split systems, mini- and multi-splits are also defined as central air conditioners and heat pumps rather than room air conditioners.
