What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Three Rivers Heating & Cooling wants you to be aware of all the choices available to you, if you are ready for a new heating and cooling system. There are many options to expertly heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking the extra steps to do some research and see 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 think about.

One of the best perks 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 worry about taking 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 route for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Typically, having the bonus space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This gets rid of that challenge if the space isn’t open or large enough.

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

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

There is a variety of models available and our professionals can talk 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 objectives for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are comfortable, regardless of what the weather brings in Portland.
