What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Breathe Healthier Air is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those possibilities is a packaged unit. What exactly is that? It’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system installed outside, which means you don’t need to misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be hard to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed in the exterior of your home or on the roof and connects to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t cover too much space.

Our professionals can inform you about the different models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to find a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Stuart.
