What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But B & B Heating & Cooling 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 waste indoor space accommodating 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. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, 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 minor footprint and makes installation that much quicker 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.
