What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But Kilbourne 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 possibilities 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 take up indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are great if you are constrained 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 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 another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy 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 choice a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Delray Beach. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
