What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Ilten's Incorporated is here to remind you to think about 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 housing a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are great 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 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 good 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 faster and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and effective option that doesn’t occupy too much space.

Our technicians 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 choice a model that will keep you comfortable throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Cedar Rapids.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to take a look at the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
