What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Tri County Air Care LLC is here to remind you to take into account each option and decide 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 misuse indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are great if you are limited 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 a challenge to find an good 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 efficient 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 cover too much space. Our technicians can chat with you about the different models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to determine a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Dallas.
