What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But Aggressive Mechanical is here to remind you to think about each option and establish 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 putting up 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be hard to find an perfect 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 faster and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t take up 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 comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Neptune City.

If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to check out the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
