What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Point Heating & Cooling is here to remind you to think about each option and decide 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 misuse indoor space housing 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. Particularly, 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 a challenge to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny 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 helpful option that doesn’t take up 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 comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Plover.
