Chesapeake, Virginia, is a great place to live. It offers shopping and events of a larger city with easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and outdoor adventure. Moderate in temperature, Chesapeake gets its share of chilly nights and hot days that can challenge your comfort, especially if your old air conditioning and heating systems are struggling. You can patch your comfort problems with noisy window air conditioner units and inadequate space heaters. A packaged HVAC system may be a better choice, though.
What is a Packaged HVAC System?
A packaged HVAC system is designed to meet both your heating and cooling needs in a relatively small amount of space. Rather than relying on a furnace and coil or an air handler, packaged systems contain everything in one outdoor unit. These all-in-one units can either sit inconspicuously next to your home or on the roof of it.
What Kinds of Packaged HVAC Systems Are Available?
Packaged systems are generally available in several different types. A packaged air conditioner system includes an air conditioner with the option to add electric heat. Dual-fuel systems incorporate a heat pump with a gas furnace to ensure reliably adequate heat when the outdoor temperature drops below freezing. Finally, systems that combine an air conditioner with a traditional gas furnace are also available.
What are the Benefits of a Packaged System?
Is a packaged system right for your home? Consider the following benefits of packaged HVAC systems:
- Compact and great for smaller homes with little indoor space
- Easier to maintain because everything sits in one cabinet rather than in difficult-to-access places
- Eliminate any indoor noise because the system sits outside
Packaged systems offer a lot of great features and benefits. Contact Weather Makers, Inc. at 757-263-4869 if you want to install a packaged HVAC system in your home.
