What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Point Heating & Cooling is here to remind you to take into account each option and determine which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those options 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 limited 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 take that away, it can be difficult to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor 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 useful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals can talk with you about the assorted models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to find a model that will keep you content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Plover. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
