Packaged units are relatively common in commercial settings, but they’re a great fit for many Easton, Maryland, homes too. Find out why a packaged unit could offer just what you need in a cooling system.
What Is a Packaged Unit?
A packaged unit combines most of the primary elements of an HVAC system into a single component. Most central air conditioners are composed of an indoor unit for absorbing heat and dispersing cool air and an outdoor unit for releasing hot air outside. A typical packaged unit, however, includes a compressor, evaporator coil, condenser coil, and blower all in the same piece, instead of splitting them into indoor and outdoor components.
Minimal Space Requirements
One of the biggest advantages of a packaged air conditioner unit is the small amount of space it requires. If you don’t have much room for an HVAC system indoors or you don’t have space for a large outdoor unit in your backyard, a packaged unit presents an easy solution. These all-in-one units take up less space outdoors and don’t require any indoor space.
Flexible Installation Options
Central air systems usually occupy a prominent spot in your backyard, but packaged units offer much more flexibility. At Griffith Energy Services, we most often install packaged units at ground level, but we can just as easily install them in a crawl space, on the roof, or even mounted on a wall. These units can go almost anywhere, making them a smart choice for Easton area homes with spaces that present challenges for installation.
Whether you’re planning on investing in a preventive maintenance package or not, a packaged unit generally makes maintenance much easier. Since all the components are together, our technicians can quickly access all the essential parts for cleaning, inspection, and maintenance.
