So you may be asking yourself, what is a packaged heating and cooling system and why do I need one?  A packaged system contains the same components as a split-system namely the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and the expansion valve – all located in a single unit utilizing less space as opposed to a split-system.  Packaged units are usually installed on the ground or on the roof outside, allowing for both horizontal or down-flow designs.

Packaged heating and cooling systems have been designed to contain all of your heating and cooling equipment in an all-in-one system.  Depending on the weather and your energy needs, there are four types of packaged systems to choose from, each with different functions:

  • Packaged heat pumps that both heat and cool your home
  • Packaged air conditioners that offer cooling for warmer climates
  • Packaged gas-electric units that can switch from electric air conditioning to gas heating
  • Hybrid fuel packaged systems that work as a heat pump, but can also provide gas heating

Some benefits of a packaged heating and cooling system include:

  • Packaged units include all of the components of a heating and cooling system in a single location, saving more space.
  • Energy-efficient performance.
