What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are offered to them. But Mustang Mechanical is here to remind you to consider 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 misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are wonderful if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you take that away, it can be hard 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 faster and easier. They can be installed in 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 take up too much space. Our technicians can inform 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, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Grand Prairie. 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 correct place.
