What you need to know about packaged units

Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are accessible to them. But Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. 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 take up indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great 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 usually 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 good location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a small 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 professionals 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 choice a model that will keep you content throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Utica.
