What Is a Packaged HVAC System?
A packaged HVAC system is unlike central heating and air units as it houses all of the heating and cooling components in a single unit. This type of system is particularly beneficial in homes or condos that are limited in terms of indoor space. You get the advantage of being able to heat and cool your home with one unit. Most times, a packaged HVAC system is installed outside, either on the roof or on the ground. The system is connected to ductwork in the same way that split HVAC systems are, but its heating and cooling units are kept outside, so you don’t have to sacrifice space.
