What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Osceola Air, LLC is here to remind you to take into account each option and decide which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those choices 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. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be hard 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 within the exterior of your home or on the roof and links 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 experts can chat with you about the different 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 at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in St. Cloud. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to check out the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
