What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Clean Air HVAC is here to remind you to think about 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 putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be difficult to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed in 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 helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals can inform 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, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Pacheco.
