What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But All Seasons Heating & A/C Co is here to remind you to think about 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 take up indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect 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 usually have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be hard to find an ideal 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 quicker and easier. They can be installed inside 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 useful option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our experts 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 Bloomington. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
