Home Comfort Heating & Air wants you to be aware of all the opportunities available to you, if you are in the market for a new heating and cooling system. There are many options to expertly heat and cool your home, so it’s important to take the extra steps to do some research and decide 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 context on what they are, and why they might be something for you to think about.

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 fret about taking up space inside your home for the furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Since the unit installs outside, it’s a perfect option for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the extra space in the basement allows for more storage where you can keep the heating and cooling components. This gets rid of that challenge if the space isn’t available or large enough.

A packaged unit is particularly 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 get to indoor comfort even faster.

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

There is a range of models available and our professionals can chat about what will be the best option for you. We’re happy to come out and visit your home to look at the situation and talk about your objectives for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are content, regardless of what the weather brings in Elk River.
