July 06, 2018

Lanz Furnace and Fireplace wants you to be aware of all the options available to you, if you are in the market for a new heating and cooling system. There are a lot of options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking the added 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 professionals want to give you a little context on what they are, and why they might be something for you to take into account.

One of the best perks 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 worry about using 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 optimal choice for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Generally, having the bonus space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This removes 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 easily blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is straightforward, and you’ll be able to achieve 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. Brace yourself for an efficient and useful solution that doesn’t take up a large amount of space.

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