What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC is here to remind you to think about 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 misuse indoor space housing 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. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude 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 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 useful option that doesn’t take up too much space.

Our technicians can chat 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 at ease throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Ellsworth.
