penticton heat pumps air conditioning hvac refrigeration

One of the most popular and versatile HVAC setups, with one component inside and one outside, this style allows for a wide array of air conditioning unit options, provided your home is equipped to handle the installation of ducts.

How it works

With both an indoor and outdoor unit working together, these systems are able to move hot and cold air through your home by relying on ducts and furnaces installed in closets or crawl spaces. This makes them visually unobtrusive, as the grilles at the mouths of the air ducts can be purchased in a variety of styles in order to match the decor of the room.
