What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Honke Heating & AC is here to remind you to think about each option and decide 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 waste indoor space accommodating 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for a different 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 connects 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 different models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to determine a model that will keep you content throughout the year, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Gresham.
