What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Arrings A/C & Heating is here to remind you to think about each option and determine which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those options 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 wonderful 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be a challenge 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed within 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 effective 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, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Humble. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
