What you need to know about packaged units

1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. wants you to understand all the choices available to you, if you are ready for a new heating and cooling system. There are many options to properly heat and cool your home, so it’s valuable to take the extra steps to do some research and decide which system will be the best for your needs.

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 information 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 taking 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 optimal option for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Typically, having the additional space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This eliminates that challenge if the space isn’t open or large enough.

A packaged unit is extremely compact, which means it doesn’t fill much space outdoors either. It will easily blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is straightforward, and you’ll be able to achieve indoor comfort even faster.

The units can be installed in the exterior of your home. It’s connected to the ductwork through a small, safe hole in the wall. Prepare for an efficient and helpful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

There is a range of models available and our experts can inform you about what will be the best choice for you.
