INDOOR COMFORT CONTROL PRODUCTS
The focus at Arkansas Refrigeration Company for complete customer satisfaction on every job means we believe in offering products that we know will give our customers the performance and reliability we would require for our own homes. See below for information about the different indoor comfort systems and indoor air quality products we offer.
Air conditioners are a welcome addition outside and inside your home. A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. An air conditioner is the outdoor unit that cools air and sends it to the indoor unit for circulation through your home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life.
Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. Furnace heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace
High-Efficiency Heat Pumps
Heat pumps deliver four-season comfort in one stylish unit. They cool your home like an air conditioner in the summer, and warm it in the winter like a furnace.
A split system heat pump keeps homes comfortable all year long. In summer, it draws heat out of your home to cool it. In the winter, it draws heat from outside air into your home to warm it.
Packaged Heating and Cooling Systems
Packaged heating and cooling systems put efficiency and economy in one self-contained unit.
In a packaged system, all equipment is built into an outdoor unit, usually on a concrete slab or other platform. The “package” that gives it its name provides central air conditioning during the summer and heat in colder months.
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit. The air handler is the indoor unit that circulates cool air through your home in the summer and warm air in the winter. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. Air handlers supply conditioned air evenly throughout your home, when used in place of a furnace, with either an air conditioning or heat pump system.
Dehumidification can be very important if you live in areas of high humidity. High humidity in cooler temperatures gives you a wet clammy feeling and in warmer temperatures causes a wet sticky feeling.
High humidity can also cause mold and mildew throughout the house causing potential health issues, ruin expensive clothes, fabrics and wall coverings. All air-conditioning units take out some humidity when they are running but in very humid areas this is often not enough. A dehumidification system can take out up to 15 times more water from the air than a standard system with very little operating cost penalty.
Humidity is very important in areas which are dry. Symptoms of dry climates are dry skin and eyes, nose bleeds and static electricity. All of these can be eliminated by raising the humidity in your home which can be accomplished with a Humidifier connected to your Air-conditioning system.
Today’s air cleaners can clear your home’s air of dust, pollen, fungi, smoke and other particles too small to see like never before. It’s easy with HEPA, Electronic and Media Air Cleaners. These cleaners provide stepped-up filtration, more effective than your furnace or air conditioner alone. In fact, these cleaners can remove up to 94% of the particles that pass through your home’s system. And since these pollutants can build up as film on walls and furniture, this is performance you’ll feel and see.
UV Air Purifiers
You can protect your home and your family from allergy-causing mold with a selection of air purifiers. These ultraviolet air treatment systems kill mold that would grow in the cool, damp interiors of your air conditioning system. This is the same technology that’s long been used by water treatment facilities
On the hottest days of summer and the coldest days of winter, you want your home sealed tight for energy efficiency. But you don’t want to sacrifice the benefits of fresh air. With a Ventilation System, you don’t have to. Whether your Dealer recommends the Energy Recovery Ventilator for warm climates or the Heat Recovery Ventilator for cooler regions, you can trust these air exchangers to quietly bring in fresh, clean air from the outside and remove stale inside air, along with dust and other particle buildup.
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler. The evaporator coil is a series of piping connected to a furnace or air handler that blows indoor air across it, causing the coil to absorb heat from the air. The cooled air is then delivered to the house through ducting. The refrigerant then flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts over again
