B & G HVAC wants you to understand all the choices available to you, if you are thinking about a new heating and cooling system. There are several options to effectively heat and cool your home, so it’s worth taking 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 professionals want to give you a little information on what they are, and why they might be something for you to consider.

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 be concerned 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 route for homeowners who do not have a basement or just have a crawlspace. Typically, having the additional space in the basement allows for more storage where you can house the heating and cooling components. This eliminates that challenge if the space isn’t available or large enough.

A packaged unit is extremely compact, which means it doesn’t fill much space outdoors either. It will effortlessly blend into your outdoor environment. And because it’s compact, installation is simpler, and you’ll be able to achieve indoor comfort even faster.

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

There is a variety of models available and our professionals can chat 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 goals for heating and cooling your home. We want to make sure you are content, regardless of what the weather brings in Marshalltown.
