What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc 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 housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an ideal 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 efficient and easier. They can be installed within 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 effective option that doesn’t cover too much space.

Our technicians 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, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Saint Petersburg.
