What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But YES R&M Inc. is here to remind you to consider each option and decide 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 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. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually 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 perfect location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed in 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 effective option that doesn’t take up 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 find a model that will keep you content throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Long Beach.
