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 offered to them. But Airmax Long Island Inc is here to remind you to think about 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 waste indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be a challenge to find an perfect 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 quicker and easier. They can be installed inside 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 occupy too much space. Our professionals can inform you about the various models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to determine a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Suffolk/Nassau County.
