If your home or small business has an air conditioning system, it is likely a package one. This means that all of the components are included when the system is built at a factory. It also means that there is no opportunity for customization beyond selecting the particular tonnage capacity. Your home air conditioner will have a capacity of one to five tons and a commercial enterprise version offers five to 25 tons. Tonnage is related to the amount of heat that the air conditioner can remove in one hour. So, the larger the facility, the greater the tonnage required.
There are two types of package air conditioners. One is a window unit, which has a low tonnage and cools a small area. The other kind is the split level air conditioner, which is commonly understood as central air conditioning. A split level cools the whole house or building. It gets its name because part of the unit sits outside and part sits inside your home or facility. The part that is outside tends to be noisy because of the fan that helps vent the warm exhaust air outdoors. The part that is inside usually sits near the furnace and functions to cool your air.
