What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to consider each option and establish 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 misuse indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are constrained 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed in the exterior of your home or on the roof and connects 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 professionals can inform 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 Saint Marys. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
