What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Hopper Heating and Air 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 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 wonderful if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily fit 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 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 connects 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 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 find a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Shelby. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
