What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Temp Control of Vero Beach is here to remind you to think about each option and determine 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 misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful 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 exclude that, it can be hard to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster 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 helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space. Our experts can talk with you about the various 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 at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Vero Beach.
