What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are accessible to them. But Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. 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 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are limited 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 store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult to find an perfect 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 faster and easier. They can be installed in 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.
