Your New Albany, IN home will benefit from an HVAC upgrade. When installing a new system, it’s important to understand the different types of HVAC systems available, including packaged HVAC systems, how they work and their many benefits.
How Packaged AC Systems Work
The design of a packaged HVAC system determines its operational processes. Generally speaking, though, a packaged system works in much the same manner as split heating and air conditioning systems that include stand-alone components.
How Packaged Heater Systems Work
With a heat pump system, the normal refrigeration cycle to produce cooled air gets reversed. In doing so, the reversed cycle can use evaporation and condensation to heat the heater’s coils. Once the air is warm, the system releases it into your home’s ductwork. A heat pump can be paired with a furnace to maximize efficiency when it’s cool outside, while4 also being able to provide more powerful heating when the temperature drops below freezing.
Benefits of Packaged HVAC Systems
Space efficiency is one of the primary advantages of packaged HVAC systems. When compared to split systems, packaged systems house all heating and cooling components in a single enclosure, providing advanced heating and cooling features in just one structure.
Packaged HVAC units also come with the benefit of producing heated and cooled air with minimal energy usage. Since the packaged unit can heat and cool the air, this reduces how much energy gets used during the heating and cooling processes. As a result, this can translate into reduced heating and cooling expenses.
When installing a new HVAC system or upgrading your current one, make sure to keep in mind the benefits of packaged systems. Contact our team at Lamb’s Heating & Air Conditioning today to schedule your next HVAC maintenance appointment.
