Energy Efficient HVAC

What is a packaged unit?
Packaged heating and air conditioning units are single units that contain all of the technical components – condensers, compressors, valves and more – in one casing.  Typically found outside of a home, packaged units save space and are highly efficient.

Types of packaged units include:

Is a packaged unit right for me?
Gas pack or packaged units are very good at heating or cooling mid-size spaces, typically larger rooms or more than one room at a time.  Therefore, they tend to be fairly high-powered while remaining efficient and cost-effective.  These units are also rated via Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) ratings.  These ratings make it easier for a consumer to determine the efficiency rating of a particular system.  The higher a system’s rating is, the more energy efficient the system tends to be.

Because a packaged unit is so self-contained, repairs tend to be easier as well; all of the components are in one place, making a technician’s life a bit simpler.  If you have a packaged unit that’s in need of repair, contact the experts at AirNow.  Or, if you’re in need of a new HVAC system, we can advise you on whether or not a packaged unit might be the right way to go.
