What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But AW Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to take into account each option and decide 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 accommodating 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be a challenge to find an perfect 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 inside 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 useful option that doesn’t take up too much space. Our technicians can talk with 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 comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Lincoln. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
