What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But Mighty Ducts is here to remind you to think about 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 misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are limited 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 fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed in 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 useful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our technicians can talk with you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to choice a model that will keep you content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Orange. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
