What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to consider 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 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 normally 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 another 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 connects to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and useful option that doesn’t cover 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 content throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in York. If you are unfamiliar with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
