What types are there?

Heat pump systems are configured in one of two ways: 
1. Integrated 
2. Split

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 large space for sufficient ambient airflow 

(i.e. not indoors)

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

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