HVAC contractor discussing options

What you need to know about packaged units

Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are available to them. But Jent Mechanical LLC 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 putting up a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are perfect if you are constrained on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be a challenge to find an ideal location and you likely want to use that space for an alternative purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much efficient 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 effective option that doesn’t take up too much space.

Our professionals can chat with you about the assorted 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 Dayton.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
