What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services is here to remind you to think about each option and establish 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 wonderful if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, 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 in the exterior of your home or on the roof and links 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 experts 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 at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Hudsonville.
