If you’re looking for a convenient air conditioning system that won’t take up space inside of your home, a packaged air conditioning system may be the right choice for you. While many homeowners choose split systems, which require both an indoor and outdoor unit for installation, packaged air conditioning systems combine the evaporator and condenser units into one, allowing for convenient placement options and ease of maintenance.
If your home already has an indoor furnace, split system air conditioning is often the most cost-effective choice. However, if your home is not set up for a split system, you may decide to call a technician to install a packaged system instead. Packaged air conditioning units are usually installed right outside of your home. The entire refrigeration cycle takes place within this single unit and cool air is provided through the ductwork of your home.
Packaged air conditioning units have several benefits. They contain the same components of a split system, but these are all housed in one outdoor unit. This is useful for those whose homes make indoor installation difficult or who don’t have the space for a separate indoor unit. They can often be used for both heating and cooling so that there is no need for a separate heating system.
Another benefit of a packaged system is that a technician can often access your system with ease, which means repair and maintenance calls may be completed quickly. With split systems, the technician has to move between two separate cabinets in order to access your entire system, but packaged systems allow for less back-and-forth, which means you can switch your air conditioner back on sooner.
Packaged air conditioning units rely on the existing ductwork in your home in order to circulate air. If you do not have ducts installed in your home, a packaged system along with ductwork installation may be costly. In this case, you may consider ductless options, such as a ductless mini split system.
