What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are accessible to them. But Abilene Air-Tech Inc is here to remind you to take into account each option and determine 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 take up indoor space housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are perfect if you are limited on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily fit 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 an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed within 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 helpful option that doesn’t cover too much space.

Our experts can talk with you about the assorted models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to determine a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Abilene.

If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
