What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Appalachian Heating is here to remind you to take into account each option and decide 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 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and connects 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 technicians can inform you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to choice a model that will keep you content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Mount Hope.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
