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 offered to them. But Stanford Heating & Cooling 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 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 accommodating 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. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually 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 another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals can inform you about the various 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 Bloomfield. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to check out the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
