What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Davis Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to think about 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 waste indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are restrained 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 fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge 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 efficient and easier. They can be installed within 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 professionals can inform you about the different 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 at ease throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Rocky Mount. 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.
