HVAC contractor discussing options

What you need to know about packaged units

Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are accessible to them. But M & S Heating & Air LLC is here to remind you to consider each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those choices 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 putting up 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 fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove 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 efficient and easier. They can be installed in the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up 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 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, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Mechanicsville.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of options to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the perfect place.
