What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But KDM Service Corporation is here to remind you to consider 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 accommodating a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Especially, 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 remove that, it can be hard to find an good location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much faster and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and links up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t take up too much space. Our experts 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, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Tuscaloosa.
