Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But James Heating & A/C, Inc is here to remind you to think about each option and decide which type of system will best meet your needs.
One of those choices 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 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be hard 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 inside 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space.
Our experts 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 determine a model that will keep you content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Lexington.
