What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to take into account 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 take up indoor space housing a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are restrained 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 house 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 another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a minor footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed within 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 useful option that doesn’t cover 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 choice a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Bishop.
