What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. 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 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 take up indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are perfect if you are limited 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be difficult to find an perfect 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 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 take up too much space.

Our experts can talk with you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to find a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Branchville.
