What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Air Houston Mechanical LLC is here to remind you to think about each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those options 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 perfect 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed within 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our experts can inform you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to choice a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Huffman. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
