How Each Packaged System Works
Operation depends on configuration, but packaged systems typically heat and cool your home or business the same way stand-alone systems do. The ducting with a single cabinet system is quite different. The duct work is attached to the system rather than connecting to various components in your building.
- Space efficiency – Unlike split-systems, all the components of a complete heating and cooling system are contained in one place, making packaged units ideal for situations in which indoor space is limited.
- Energy-efficient heating and cooling performance. Our packaged gas/electric units offer 80% AFUE heating performance.
- The are quiet and in most cases more cost efficient than other heating and cooling solutions.
Packaged Unit Types
Just like central forced-air systems, packaged units come in many configurations. We will recommend a system that will match your specific needs.
- Packaged Air Conditioners: The compressor, coils, and air handler are all housed in a single-box cabinet. The packaged air conditioner can also provide some warmth by using an electrical heating strip.
- Packaged Heat Pumps: A packaged heat pump uses heat pump technology to cool and heat your home.
- Packaged as-Electric: The packaged gas-electric unit combines an (electric) air conditioner with gas-powered furnace performance.
- Packaged Dual-Fuel: The packaged dual fuel system contains a heat pump, capable of heating and cooling, with a gas furnace. This type of packaged system optimizes the heating source for all conditions.
