What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 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 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 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be difficult 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 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 content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Dallas. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
