What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But Climate Control Systems 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 take up 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove 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 inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and links up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and useful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our experts can chat 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 comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Hickory. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
