Most heaters and air conditioners are called split systems because they include one or more indoor units and an outdoor unit. However, packaged HVAC systems come in one case. As a result, they’re more compact and efficient than split systems. Many large houses and commercial buildings in Woodbridge, Virginia, use more than one packaged HVAC system.
Packaged HVAC Systems Offer Plenty of Options
Take your pick: an electric air conditioner, a heat pump, or a packaged gas or electric heater. If you have more than one packaged system, match each unit’s size and design to the area it will condition.
Rooftop, window, and wall-mounted systems are available, along with ductless packaged systems. You can use zoning to control each system independently, saving energy by not heating or cooling unoccupied areas.
Packaged HVAC Systems Are Easy to Install
Packaged HVAC systems are easier and less expensive to install than most split systems. Factories assemble packaged systems. Installers connect them to existing ductwork. Installation only takes one or two days, while most traditional systems take about a week to install.
Packaged HVAC Systems Increase Home Value
With a packaged HVAC system, you can enjoy lower utility bills and more indoor storage space. Maintenance is easier for packaged systems because a service technician only has to examine one unit instead of looking at an indoor and an outdoor unit.
Some models also have exhaust fans for better ventilation and improved indoor air quality. When you’re ready to sell your home, all of these features will help attract more potential buyers and sell your home for a higher price.
