What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Air Houston Mechanical LLC is here to remind you to think about each option and determine 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 wonderful if you are limited on the amount of space inside your home. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be a challenge to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose.

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

Our professionals 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 find a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Huffman.
