What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to think about each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those choices 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 take up indoor space accommodating 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, 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 small footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed inside 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 helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our technicians 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 determine a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Sylmar. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
