What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are accessible to them. But Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc is here to remind you to consider each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those options 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 perfect if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be hard to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much quicker 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 effective option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our experts can talk with you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to find a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Racine.
