There are many options to properly heat and cool your home, so it’s important to take the additional steps to do some research and determine 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 professionals want to give you a little context on what they are, and why they might be something for you to take into account.

One of the best perks 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 worry about wasting 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. Generally, having the bonus space in the basement allows for more storage where you can store the heating and cooling components. This eliminates that challenge if the space isn’t available or large enough.

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

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