Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. 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 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 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 useful option that doesn’t take up too much space.
Our technicians can inform you about the various 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 content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in West Columbia.
