A packaged HVAC system is one that contains most or all of its parts in a single case. It sits outdoors — usually on a roof or on a concrete slab to the side of the building. Most other air conditioners and heat pumps consist of both an outdoor unit and indoor unit. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of packaged HVAC systems and why you might want to consider one for your El Paso, Texas, home or business.
Because packaged units are compact, refrigerant doesn’t need to move as far as it does in conventional HVAC systems. This means that packaged systems need less power to operate. As a result, you benefit from better energy savings. You can save even more energy and lower your utility bills by controlling your unit with a smart or programmable thermostat.
Inexpensive Installation and Maintenance
Packaged systems are faster, easier and cheaper to install than most conventional units. Since they’re almost completely assembled at the factory, all that a professional needs to do is to connect them to your existing ductwork. Installation takes one or two days, compared to about a week for traditional systems. Packaged units are also simpler to maintain.
A packaged system doesn’t require any space inside your business or house. Therefore, you can use the area where an indoor unit would otherwise go for additional storage. Heat pumps and gas furnaces come in packaged versions, and electric and hybrid packaged units are also available. It’s often easier to install a packaged system when working on a building renovation or addition than it is to replace the existing system with a larger unit.
