What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. 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 waste indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are perfect if you are restrained 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 hard to find an perfect 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 in the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space.

Our professionals 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 choice a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Paxinos.
