HVAC System Types

When installing your most recent HVAC system you might not have given much thought to the numerous different types of units out there each with their own pros and cons. If your home or business is considering a new installation of an HVAC system, consider learning about the four main systems. These include split, hybrid, duct-free and packaged heating and air systems.


Heating and Cooling Split Systems

These are by far the most common and consist of two separate units. These 2 split systems include one for heating and one for cooling. Here the cooling unit is outside and uses refrigerant, compressors and coils to cool air and a fan to blow out hot air. These are usually the larger AC units you see on the outside of a home.

The heater however is normally located in the basement or storage space. This system uses gas to hat the home and has it’s heat dispersed through the house either by fan or evaporator. The split system’s temperature output is controlled by a traditional thermostat. This HVAC system is popular because it is easy applicable and works in almost any environment, being independent of weather.

Our Services

Hybrid Split HVAC System

A hybrid HVAC system has a lot of similarities to the split system except a few key differences. In this situation the homeowner has the ability to switch between gas power and electric power to heat their home. This is a great option for those trying to lower utility costs each month and conserve energy. They work best in mild climates were it’s not so cold that gas heat is necessary but heat is still needed in the home. Electric is more efficient and quieter whereas gas is quicker and more complete. This system still uses traditional ducts and thermostats for temperature control.


Duct Free

A duct free or mini-split system is very different than the two previously mentioned ones and comes with both high upfront costs and huge benefits. It is important to understand that there are certain situations where this system just won’t make sense at all. The way this HVAC system works is, an individual unit is mounted on walls indoors, attached to a outdoor compressor and is responsible for the temperature in just one room.

These units make perfect sense for new additions to your home, a garage, or any additional building because it is way easier to install and allows complete temperature control independent from the rest of the home or building. These also work great for businesses like hotels or venues, allowing for the tenant to control individual temps. Another benefit is energy conservation. For individuals retiring or maybe downsizing you can eliminate energy waste because you aren’t heating or cooling empty rooms instead you are making just the one room you are in comfortable. Keep in mind these HVAC units do require regular maintenance to avoid costly replacements.


Packaged Heating & Air

This system is a smaller contained heating and cooling unit stored within your home. It’s usually housed in the attic or storage on the upper floor. It’s smaller size allows the unit to be used inside if exterior mounting isn’t an option.

This HVAC system is primarily used in warmer climates because the main drawback for the compact size comes in the units ability to produce a lot of heat. This also is because the unit is electric powered instead of gas. If you live in a warmer climate and wish to have efficient energy usage and lower utility bills this system can be a great option.

What Others Are Saying About Our HVAC Services


I had some new gas lines run throughout the house for new appliances. The two technicians that came to do the work were super friendly and helpful. The added lines were discreetly placed out of the way and looked very neat and clean when they finished. They were very thorough and made sure everything was correct before they left and encouraged me to call if any issues came up with the work they completed or work previously completed in my house. Excellent customer service!

I’m a first time homeowner learning about the home and the systems/ maintenance and how they should be operating properly. Evan was a very professional service technician who explained everything clearly and showed me on the unit exactly what he was referring to. They discuss everything with you in advance of performing any service and even waive fees or provide discounts depending on what you need done. I was very happy with my first experience interacting with a service company like this, and would definitely recommend them to anybody.

Great experience. Our heat went out on one of the coldest days of the year and they were there in a matter of hours! Great customer service and knowledgeable service technician. They even send out a picture of your tech so you know who to expect for service. Could not be happier with service.

Dan is extraordinary! Loves his job. Black-Haak has installed our air conditioner and furnace and done annual inspections for years. I can’t imagine trusting any other company with such important investments.

I was very pleased with my furnace maintenance check. Dan and Connor were very nice. They took the time to explain all that they did and what they saw regarding our older furnace. They took pictures of inside the furnace and then sat down with me to explain the good and the bad. I would highly recommend Black-Haak.

While having our boiler tuned up for the year, the technician discovered a small carbon monoxide leak. He sent his supervisor out immediately. By the next day, we had our boiler replaced. Installation only took a few hours and there was no disruption to the household. The crew worked quickly and were extremely qualified. The office manager helped us out by taking care of all the details with our home warranty insurance provider to submit replacement as a claim. We highly recommend working with Black-Haak Heating.

They did a maintenance on the furnace today and were very cordial and professional as always. They seem happy to explain everything and, as far as I know, do a great job.(This is from 11 months ago.. don't see how to add a new review).They did our A/C last year and our gas furnace this year. Went out of their way to correct some faults of previous contractors. They have been prompt and courteous. Early days, but as far as this lay person can tell, they did a great job. They seem better than two previous HVAC contractors we had used.Did maintenance yesterday (10.31.2019)... as always did a great job explaining what was done and why. Btb, so far so good with both heating and cooling systems they installed a few years in now.
