What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those possibilities 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 putting up 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed within 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 cover 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 find a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Columbus. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
