What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t recognize 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 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 accommodating 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. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed within the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks 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 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 choice a model that will keep you content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Branchville.
