There are a lot of options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking the additional steps to do some research and see which system will be the best for your needs. Have you ever heard of packaged units? If not, you’re not the only one. Which is why our professionals want to give you a little information on what they are, and why they might be something for you to think about. One of the best perks of a packaged unit is that it’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system that can be installed outside of the home. What does that mean? You don’t need to fret about taking up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Seeing as the unit installs outside, it’s a perfect choice for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the extra space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This eliminates that challenge if the space isn’t free or large enough. A packaged unit is very compact, which means it doesn’t occupy much space outdoors either. It will easily blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is easier, and you’ll be able to get to indoor comfort even faster. The units can be installed in the exterior of your home. It’s hooked up to the ductwork through a small, secure hole in the wall. Prepare for an efficient and helpful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.
