Lennox Central Air Conditioning System

Central Air Conditioning

A central air conditioning system is the largest type of system available. Central air, as it is also known, is generally seen in large structures such as a home or office building.  With central air conditioning, the central unit is usually located outdoors or in an isolated area of a building.  The central unit connects to ductwork which runs throughout the building, with blowers pushing cold air out of the ducts to cool down rooms. The air conditioner also vents to the outdoors to eliminate excess heat and moisture.

Lennox Mini Split Air Conditioning System

Ductless Mini-Split

Ductless Mini-Split systems make good retrofit add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems or for relatively small areas.  Mini-Split systems have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A ductless mini-split is great for conditioning individual rooms and has flexibility when it comes to zone cooling.
