Ilten's Incorporated wants you to be aware of all the options available to you, if you are thinking about a new heating and cooling system. There are several options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s important to take the extra steps to do some research and determine which system will be the best for your needs.

Have you ever heard of packaged units? If not, you’re not the only one. Which is why our experts want to give you a little background on what they are, and why they might be something for you to take into account.

One of the best advantages of a packaged unit is that it’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system that can be installed outside of the home. What does that mean? You don’t need to be concerned about using up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Because the unit installs outside, it’s a optimal route for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the additional space in the basement allows for more storage where you can keep the heating and cooling components. This eliminates that challenge if the space isn’t open or large enough.

A packaged unit is extremely compact, which means it doesn’t fill much space outdoors either. It will quickly blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is easier, and you’ll be able to find indoor comfort even faster.

The units can be installed inside the exterior of your home. It’s hooked up to the ductwork through a small, safe hole in the wall. Prepare for an efficient and useful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

There is a variety of models available and our professionals can inform you about what will be the best selection for you.
