Benefits of a Packaged Unit

If you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, there are many efficient options available, and a technician can help you find the right choice for you depending on your home and lifestyle. Here at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning, we want to help you learn about the different types of air conditioning systems so you can decide which one is right for your home. In this guide, we will discuss the benefits of packaged air conditioning systems, an alternative to the traditional split-system air conditioner.

There are two types of HVAC systems that are currently used.   Split systems have components separated with the condensing unit outside the home and the furnace and evaporative coil inside the home, attic, or possibly the garage.  A packaged unit has all the components packaged together, and it is typically mounted outside on the roof or on the ground.


While split-system air conditioners are the most common systems found in homes, some unique home designs do not have the space for installation of an indoor unit. In this case, a packaged unit is often the best option. Because your packaged unit will be connected directly to the ductwork of your home, there is no need for indoor installation. Furthermore, the cabinet may be located on the rooftop, saving space outdoors as well.


Because all of the parts of the system are located in a single cabinet, packaged systems are easily accessible. If you need repairs or if you schedule maintenance, a technician can access your system without moving back and forth between units, as every part is in one location. And because a packaged unit is often located on the rooftop, the technician stays out of your way, so your daily life can continue as usual while you wait for repairs or maintenance to be completed.

Packaged units are just one of the options for air conditioning in Fresno available from Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. Call us today to talk to an expert about the best option for your home.
