Upgrading to a packaged HVAC unit offers a lot of benefits, but such a system isn't right for every homeowner. Here are the most important points to consider if you're thinking of making an upgrade to a packaged HVAC system.
One of the biggest advantages of a packaged system is its compact size. Because all parts of the HVAC unit are stored in a one cabinet outside the home, packaged units are ideal for those homes that have limited indoor space to devote to a heating and cooling system.
That all of the parts come pre-assembled by the factory in one unit helps guarantee that your packaged system will run as efficiently as possible from the start. Installation of such units is also easier due to the factory's pre-assembly and thus tends to be more affordable.
Because packaged HVAC units are installed outside in the elements, they can be left vulnerable to leaks and negative side effects from rain and wind. This external installation of the unit also allows animals to make a home in the unit during the cold winter months; these nesting animals have the potential to chew wires and destroy insulation.
If you are considering upgrading your HVAC unit to a packaged system, speaking with a heating and cooling expert can help you answer any outstanding questions. Please contact the skilled technicians at Morelli Heating & Air Conditioning to learn more or to schedule service.
