What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Many times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling choices that are offered to them. But Hammack Service Company is here to remind you to take into account 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be difficult to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed within the exterior of your home or on the roof and links up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and useful option that doesn’t occupy 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 determine a model that will keep you content throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Richardson. 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. You can contact Hammack Service Company at 972-351-8874 and our technicians will be happy to walk you through our selection and chat about what you are imagining for your home.
