What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are accessible to them. But Effective Service Group, LLC is here to remind you to consider each option and determine 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 take up indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily fit 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 a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed inside 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 cover too much space. Our technicians can inform you about the various 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 East Hanover.
