What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But PWA Heating & Cooling 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 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 housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are great if you are constrained 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed in 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 experts can chat with you about the different 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 content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Plainfield. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
