Why Packaged Units?
Packaged units have typically been thought of as a commercial heating and cooling system, but more and more people are starting to utilize them in residential applications as well. With space at a premium in modern Orlando homes, saving even just a few square feet by eliminating an HVAC closet could do wonders for your floorplan. When you can put your entire HVAC system outdoors (save the air ducts that run through your walls or ceiling), then you’ll be able to make better use of your available space.
Packaged units offer a number of other perks and benefits as well, including:
- Quiet operation: With a well-insulated roof, many packaged HVAC units run significantly quieter than some of their counterparts. By putting the compressor on the rooftop, you’ll keep more of the noise pollution out of your home.
- Superior efficiency: Because package units have a much smaller distance between compressor and condenser, they gain or lose less heat during the refrigerant transfer process. This means increased efficiency and lower cost of operation.
- Ease of repairs: By keeping all major components in one unit, package HVAC units can often be easier to diagnose and repair.
