What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But B&D Air Conditioning is here to remind you to think about each option and determine 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 misuse indoor space putting up 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be hard to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor 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 useful option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our professionals can inform you about the different models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to choice a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Safford. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
