What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc is here to remind you to consider 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 waste 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, 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 within the exterior of your home or on the roof and connects 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 professionals can chat 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 comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Heflin.
