What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Total Comfort Solutions is here to remind you to take into account 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 take up indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are limited 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 fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, 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 tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals 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 determine a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Kennesaw. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
