What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Smyth Air Conditioning Inc 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 perfect if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, 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 small footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed in 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 useful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals can inform you about the assorted 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, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Lake Worth.
