Find Out If Packaged HVAC Systems Are Right for You
You may have heard the term “packaged system” before, but you’re probably wondering what it means in relation to your heating and cooling needs. Well, we are so glad you asked!
What Is an All-in-One (AKA Packaged) System?
Packaged systems offer a simplified, more streamlined approach to heating and cooling. The system contains everything needed for both heating and cooling: the evaporator, condenser, compressor, and other components. But instead of utilizing multiple units placed in different areas, the system’s components are all housed together inside one, space-saving unit. Plus, packaged units don’t need to be housed indoors. They can be installed outdoors or even on the roof. Packaged systems are built to be versatile for a variety of system designs.
Are There Different Kinds of Packaged Systems?
While all packaged systems are specially engineered to house all of your heating and cooling equipment in a single unit, they are not all the same. Depending on the climate where you live, and your energy-efficiency needs, you can choose from four basic types of packaged systems: Heat pump – these will both heat and cool your home Air conditioner – ideal cooling solutions for warmer climates Hybrid fuel – these work primarily as an electric heat pump, but can also provide gas heating for greater flexibility Gas/electric – able to switch from electric air conditioning to gas heating, giving you more fuel options
Why Would You Want a Packaged System?
There are a couple of reasons you might opt for a packaged system, but the most common is space planning. Because they can be housed outdoors, or on the roof, these are ideal systems for homes where every inch of interior space counts.
