July 06, 2018

KDM Service Corporation wants you to understand all the options available to you, if you are in the market for a new heating and cooling system. There are several options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking the added steps to do some research and see 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 technicians want to give you a little information on what they are, and why they might be something for you to take into account.

One of the best benefits 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 fret 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 choice for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Usually, having the bonus space in the basement allows for more storage where you can keep the heating and cooling components. This removes that challenge if the space isn’t available or large enough.

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

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

There is a range of models available and our technicians can inform you about what will be the best choice for you. We’re happy to come out and visit your home to evaluate the situation and talk about your objectives for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are happy, regardless of what the weather brings in Tuscaloosa.
