What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is here to remind you to consider 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 housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are great if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, 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 hard 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 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 occupy too much space. Our technicians can chat with you about the assorted 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 comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in McMurray.
