What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually 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 minor footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed within 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 take up too much space. Our professionals can talk with 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 comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in West Jefferson. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
