What you need to know about packaged units 07/06/2018 Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish 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 misuse indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect 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 normally have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed within the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up 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 determine a model that will keep you content throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Lake Charles.
