The inside component found in a split system heat pump is called an air handler.  The outside component in a split system heat pump is called the outside section heat pump.  Heat pumps split systems are the most common type of heating and air conditioning unit.

If you are looking for ways to lower your heating and cooling costs, you should look into a heat pump split system.  Though a heat pump split system can be expensive to install, in the long run the system will save you money.  A heat pump split system is more energy efficient than a standard furnace and air conditioner system.

The heat pump split system moves heat from a warmer place into a cooler one.  For example, during the summer, the heat pump split system will move the heat from your house into the outdoors, leaving cooler air in the house.  When the heat pump is bringing warm air into the house in the winter, you may use solar heat or heat from the ground, also called geothermal heat.  Because the temperature underground stays more stable, geothermal heat is ideal for your heating and cooling needs.  In the summer, the ground is cool, allowing you to cool your home for a fraction of the cost of a traditional air conditioner.  In the winter, the ground retains heat from the summer and you can heat your home for less than what you would pay for a heating system that needs to generate the heat that is pumped through the system.
