What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Uptown Heating & Cooling is here to remind you to consider each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those possibilities 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 limited on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an ideal 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 hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space.

Our experts can talk 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 comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Westerville.
