HVAC contractor discussing options

What you need to know about packaged units

Local HVAC Repair & Service wants you to recognize all the choices available to you, if you are thinking about a new heating and cooling system. There are many options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking the additional steps to do some research and determine 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 technicians want to give you a little information on what they are, and why they might be something for you to take into account.

One of the best advantages 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 be concerned about using up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Since the unit installs outside, it’s a optimal choice for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the bonus space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This gets rid of that challenge if the space isn’t available or large enough.

A packaged unit is extremely compact, which means it doesn’t fill 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, protected hole in the wall. Brace yourself for an efficient and useful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

There is an assortment of models available and our technicians can inform you about what will be the best selection for you. We’re happy to come out and visit your home to assess the situation and talk about your goals for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are content, regardless of what the weather brings in Wheeling.
