What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Custom Air Systems Inc is here to remind you to think about each option and decide 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great if you are limited on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, 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 take that away, it can be a challenge to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for another 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 professionals can chat 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 at ease throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Port St. Lucie.
