What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But AC Sales is here to remind you to think about each option and determine which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those choices 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 waste indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

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

The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much efficient 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 useful option that doesn’t take up too much space.

Our experts can talk with you about the different models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to determine a model that will keep you content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Lafayette.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
