Have you ever heard of packaged units? If not, you’re not the only one. Which is why our experts want to give you a little background on what they are, and why they might be something for you to think about. One of the best advantages of a packaged unit is that it’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system that can be installed outside of the home. What does that mean? You don’t need to fret about using up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Since the unit installs outside, it’s a great option for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the extra space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This gets rid of that challenge if the space isn’t open or large enough. A packaged unit is particularly compact, which means it doesn’t occupy much space outdoors either. It will effortlessly blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is easier, and you’ll be able to get to indoor comfort even faster. The units can be installed within the exterior of your home. It’s attached to the ductwork through a small, secure hole in the wall. Brace yourself for an efficient and effective solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.
