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 North Mechanical Heating and Cooling is here to remind you to consider 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are restrained 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be a challenge to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much efficient 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 inform 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 comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Payson. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
