What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Smyth Air Conditioning Inc is here to remind you to consider each option and determine 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 misuse indoor space housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, 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 remove that, it can be difficult to find an good 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 in 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 occupy too much space.

Our professionals can talk with you about the assorted 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 at ease throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Lake Worth.
