What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Gordon Air Conditioning 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 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are wonderful if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be hard 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 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 helpful option that doesn’t take up too much space.

Our professionals can talk with you about the assorted 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, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Crestview.
