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 available to them. But US Air Heating and Cooling is here to remind you to consider each option and determine 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 take up indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are wonderful 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be difficult 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much quicker 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space.

Our professionals can inform you about the assorted 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 content throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Rock Hill.
