What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Many times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Connolly Electric & Mechanical 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, 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 ideal location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose.

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

Our technicians can chat with 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 comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Cottonwood .
