What is a Small Packaged Unit?
A small packaged system is a type of heating and cooling system that combines both heating and air conditioning equipment into one convenient package. All system components are housed together in a metal cabinet that is installed either on the exterior of a building or on its rooftop. Since all heating and cooling components are installed in the same location, small packaged units are a good option for homes and businesses that have limited space available for the equipment. There are multiple small packaged unit configurations to choose from. Gas and electric systems provide gas heating and electric air conditioning. Small packaged air conditioners contain air conditioning and air handling equipment. Small packaged heat pumps offer heat pump and air handling equipment in one package.
