Just as you take the time to think about what kind of heating and air conditioning system you would like in your home for the foreseeable future, you are going to come across what is known as a split system. This type of heating and air conditioning system stands apart from packaged unit systems in plenty of ways from installation and equipment to the everyday experience of using one to heat and cool your home. You might feel a little bit unsure about which HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) option exactly is right for you and what they have to offer. If the idea of getting a Rheem split system caught your attention, perhaps by personal recommendation or through some light research, you should know what a split system can do for you. Here’s a few of the benefits of choosing a Rheem split system for your home.
- Improves on Energy Efficiency
One benefit of using a Rheem split system for your home’s heating and cooling is the efficiency. The use of pipes rather than ducts allows for greater efficiency where ducts often are uninsulated. The control panel itself allows you to easily adjust the temperature that you want as the day goes on. This flexibility with the precise temperature regulation is one way to make sure you are not running your system more than you need to. Using what you need and not letting the machine run on blindly, can ultimately save you money on energy costs.
- Stays Quiet All Day
For those who just want their HVAC units to operate smoothly and act like they are not even there, a great feature of split systems is the subtlety. Split systems can run super quietly in each room like they are not even there. In a Rheem split system, the components that make traditional air conditioning units so noisy are moved out of the room where you are feeling the air move around. You will not have an air conditioner sitting right in the window next to you. The parts of the system that make the most noise are in the outside portion. You do not have to deal with the noise of a machine whirring throughout the hallways of your home at all hours of the day and night. A Rheem split system can operate but still allow you to have some much needed quiet. The two features are not mutually exclusive, you are able to have both in one system. This feature allows the split system to work in each room of the house without having to bother anyone. You can sit on the couch quietly reading a book without an annoying humming sound, or watch television with no extra noise competing with the volume. The peace of quiet time is highly underrated. Thankfully this type of HVAC system does not make you choose. You can simply enjoy the quiet of your own home.
- Barely Even There
Not only are these systems quiet, but they are so small and hard to notice indoors, that they barely seem to take up any space at all in the home. The air handler of the Rheem split system does not have to feel like it is in the way of your daily activities. You might initially be concerned that the system will take up too much space and be big and clunky, but that is truly not the case. The air handler portion can sit right inside of your home in the basement or attic where it will not bother anyone. The number of times you will ever have to interact with it will be so low that you may forget about it entirely after a while. The main thing you will have to be concerned with is the control panel as you decide what setting you would like that day. Unlike with a traditional air conditioner which would sit in a window frame, you will not have to worry about it clashing with the decor of the room or generally bugging you with its presence. These split systems do their jobs and stay very much out of the way.
Split system HVAC units, like their packaged unit counterparts, have their own special benefits to add to the home. With the right information at your fingertips, you can look over what each system has to offer and figure out which benefits suit you the best. Think about what you prioritize. If efficient systems that seem like they are barely there at all sound good to you, then you may want to look at some of the split systems that Rheem has to offer and pick out yours.
