What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning 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 putting up 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much efficient 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 helpful option that doesn’t take up too much space.

Our technicians can inform you about the different 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 Buellton.
