Think back to last summer—was your system struggling to defeat the heat? What about the winter – did your furnace or boiler get the job done? If so, don’t wait until the temperature inside your home becomes unbearable to think about replacing your current comfort system.
Instead of waiting until it’s too late, start considering your options today. You should take into account the number of rooms in your house, which ones you need to keep warm or cool and what the region’s general climate. Depending on your situation, a packaged heating and air conditioning system may just be the right option for you.
There are multiple kinds of packaged systems, and each works better for certain applications, so for help choosing the right system, get in touch with Wall Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..

Packaged System Options
There are a few options when it comes to packaged systems. Which one is appropriate for a particular application mostly depends on how many rooms you want to regulate the temperature in and how much control you want over the process. One option is to have the condenser and compressor housed together, along with individual satellite units for each room.
This allows you to have more control over which rooms are being cooled or heated and which are not, which means greater control over costs. This may be a better option if you have only a few rooms, so that you don’t have to purchase more than a few satellite units, or if you have rooms that don’t need to be kept cool on a regular basis, such as a guest bedroom.
Another type of packaged system is one in which all the components are housed together. This unit is then attached to your home’s ductwork through an air handler, so that heated or cooled air from the system is blown to every room in the house through individual vents in each room. With this kind of system, you still have control over the temperature in the whole house, but less over each individual room.
Choosing Your Packaged System
Selecting the system that’s right for you is contingent on a number of factors, including local climate, your budget, and individual preference. But above all else, the most important factor to consider is the square footage you need cooled or heated. Different systems have different capacities, so you should choose something that can handle the size of your house without causing your energy bills to skyrocket.
Have a professional do a walkthrough of your home in order to estimate square footage and identify any needs for additional ventilation or ductwork. If you are replacing an existing system, look at the unit itself to see if it has the specifications indicated on it. This will give you an estimate that can simplify the selection process.
Packaged System Installation
Once you have picked out the right packaged system for your home, make sure it is properly installed by a trained professional. Improper installation can lead to your system operating inefficiently or being damaged. The cost of professional installation is an investment in the life of your new packaged heating and cooling system, which means it is an investment in your comfort.
