What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Airtronic Heating & Cooling is here to remind you to consider each option and decide 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 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. 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 remove that, it can be difficult to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 useful option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our technicians can chat with you about the various 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, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Redford. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
