What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Central Aire Heating & 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 misuse 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. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be difficult to find an good 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 faster 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 take up too much space. Our experts can talk with you about the assorted 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 Bossier City.
