What you need to know about packaged units

Cooling
Heating

Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to remind you to consider each option and establish 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 take up indoor space putting up 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. Particularly, 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 remove that, it can be a challenge to find an ideal 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 quicker 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.

Our experts can chat with you about the various 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 at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Bakersfield.
