Our High-Quality Air Conditioning Units
The most typical cooling and heating systems are split systems and commonly referred to as central air conditioning. They are comprised of an indoor unit for heating and an outdoor unit for cooling.
A hybrid system combines an indoor furnace with an outdoor heat pump which also serves as a central air conditioner. The heat pump supports both cooling and heating allowing the indoor gas furnace to be a backup source of heat. It’s an energy-efficient and cost-effective way to cool and heat your home.
Ductless systems can be installed in places where conventional ducted systems cannot go or are an ideal complement to your home’s current ducted system. They can function as an air conditioner for cooling only or as a heat pump for both cooling and heating.
Cooling Systems come in different types which affect the efficiency, comfort level, and noise level of a system.
A single-stage unit means its operating speed is either on or off.
A Two-stage unit means it operates on either high or low. The low setting is adequate to meet most household cooling demands about 80% of the time, providing even temperatures. On hotter days, it can leverage the high level of operation to maintain comfort levels. Two-stage systems are typically quieter and more efficient than a single-stage unit.
A Multi-stage unit has a range of operation and therefore the most precise temperature control and best comfort. These variable speed units are the quietest and offer the most energy savings.

While an AC might have a lower upfront cost, there may be energy-savings available when heating with a heat pump. When considering cost, it is important to understand the total costs to install a system that can both heat and cool your home properly. Your Sullivan Heating Consultant can help determine all of the costs involved.
Energy efficiency/cost of operation
Heat pump systems provides energy-efficient heating using electricity, so when the temperature is moderately cold outdoors, they can be less costly to operate compared to systems that use more expensive fuel sources such as natural gas, oil, or propane. As temperatures drop below freezing, the heat pump requires more energy to maintain comfort inside, reducing efficiency and increasing your electric bill. This problem is solved by pairing a heat pump with a furnace, thus creating a Hybrid Heat system. However, due to the higher initial cost for the heat pump unit, a hybrid system may be more expensive than a more commonly paired system of an air conditioner and furnace.
The energy efficiency rating for both air conditioners and heat pumps when in cooling mode is expressed as SEER ratings. The efficiency of a heat pump when in heat mode is expressed as HSPF. The higher the rating for SEER or HSPF, the more efficient the unit. However, the energy efficiency and cost to operate really comes down to location. In areas with more moderate temperatures, a heat pump is a better option for efficient heating than in places that have very cold winter temperatures.
While the longevity of an HVAC system is determined by several variables, AC units typically last longer than heat pumps. Because heat pumps both heat and cools a home, they are used year-round. Air conditioners get a rest during cooler months when a separate heat source is used to heat the home. However, even though a heat pump may have a shorter life expectancy, that can be offset by its ability to deliver efficient, money-saving heating during milder winter weather. The life expectancy of your heat pump or air conditioning system can be maximized and kept running at its maximum energy efficiency by having the expert technicians at Sullvian Heating maintain your system regularly.
