Should I Get an Integrated or a Split Heat Pump System?

For most households, both systems result in similar economic and environmental benefits. So, choose whichever system fits best into the space in your home & property.

Features

Integrated Heat Pump System

Split Heat Pump System

Design

Evaporator + fan mounted on top of, or beside, tank.

2 components form a single unit

Evaporator + fan separate from tank. 

Each of the 2 components can be placed in a different location.

Ease of Movement

Greater unit weight may need 2 people to move & install it.

Smaller, separate units are easier to move. 

Location Flexibility

Entire system needs a space for sufficient ambient airflow (not indoors)

Separate tank can be installed in almost any location, including confined spaces

(i.e. tank inside home + heat pump on outside wall)
