HVAC contractor discussing options

What you need to know about packaged units

Heartland Heating & Cooling wants you to be aware of all the opportunities available to you, if you are thinking about a new heating and cooling system. There are several options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s valuable to take the additional steps to do some research and see which system will be the best for your needs.

Have you ever heard of packaged units? If not, you’re not the only one. Which is why our professionals want to give you a little context on what they are, and why they might be something for you to think about.

One of the best advantages of a packaged unit is that it’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system that can be installed outside of the home. What does that mean? You don’t need to be concerned about using up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Because the unit installs outside, it’s a perfect option for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Usually, having the extra space in the basement allows for more storage where you can keep the heating and cooling components. This removes that challenge if the space isn’t open or large enough.

A packaged unit is extremely compact, which means it doesn’t fill much space outdoors either. It will quickly blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is straightforward, and you’ll be able to find indoor comfort even faster.

The units can be installed in the exterior of your home. It’s connected to the ductwork through a small, safe hole in the wall. Get ready for an efficient and helpful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

There is a range of models available and our professionals can chat about what will be the best choice for you. We’re happy to come out and visit your home to assess the situation and talk about your needs for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are comfortable, regardless of what the weather brings in Grimes.
