What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Assured Appliance and Heating & Air is here to remind you to consider each option and establish 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 waste indoor space putting up 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. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be hard to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed in 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our technicians can chat with you about the different 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, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Genoa. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
