What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Watts Electric & A/C Inc is here to remind you to think about 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 limited 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 perfect 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 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 useful option that doesn’t cover too much space.

Our experts can inform 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 at ease throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Columbia.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
