What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Assured Appliance and Heating & Air is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish 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 misuse 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 take that away, it can be hard 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 minor 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 take up 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 find a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Genoa.
