What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Durable Service is here to remind you to think about 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 waste indoor space putting up 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be difficult to find an good 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 faster and easier. They can be installed in 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 helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our experts can inform 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 comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Holdrege. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
