What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But Hopper Heating and Air is here to remind you to consider each option and determine which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those options 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 putting up 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. 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 take that away, it can be difficult to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 cover too much space.

Our experts can chat with 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 content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Shelby.
