What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd is here to remind you to think about each option and determine 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 misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are great if you are limited 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 house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be difficult to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed inside 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 effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our professionals 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 choice a model that will keep you content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Waterloo. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
