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 accessible to them. But AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC is here to remind you to consider 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 waste indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are constrained 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 remove that, it can be difficult to find an ideal 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 faster and easier. They can be installed in the exterior of your home or on the roof and connects to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our technicians 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 determine a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Northwest Arkansas.
