HVAC contractor discussing options

What you need to know about packaged units

Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing wants you to understand all the opportunities available to you, if you are thinking about a new heating and cooling system. There are a lot of options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s valuable to take the added steps to do some research and decide which system will be the best for your needs.

Have you ever heard of packaged units? If not, you’re not the only one. Which is why our technicians want to give you a little background on what they are, and why they might be something for you to consider.

One of the best benefits of a packaged unit is that it’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system that can be installed outside of the home. What does that mean? You don’t need to fret about using up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Because the unit installs outside, it’s a great option for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Typically, having the additional space in the basement allows for more storage where you can keep the heating and cooling components. This gets rid of that challenge if the space isn’t free or large enough.

A packaged unit is particularly compact, which means it doesn’t take up much space outdoors either. It will easily blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is easier, and you’ll be able to find indoor comfort even faster.

The units can be installed inside the exterior of your home. It’s attached to the ductwork through a small, protected hole in the wall. Brace yourself for an efficient and helpful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

There is a range of models available and our experts can chat about what will be the best choice for you. We’re happy to come out and visit your home to evaluate the situation and talk about your needs for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are content, regardless of what the weather brings in Bakersfield.
