Memphis Package Systems – Air Conditioning and Heating
The packaged air conditioner and heating system is an all-in-one solution for areas of the country like ours here in Memphis, TN, where construction techniques are geared to house single cabinet systems rather than the split system which consists of an indoor and outdoor unit.
This type of system gives you better options if you live in warmer climates, typically for the South, Southeast, and Southwest regions of the United States. For warmer climates, the packaged air conditioner is ideal because it cools your home and heats it via the most efficient methods of your choice. For instance, for areas where the cold season drops below freezing, the packaged dual fuel or packaged gas electric system would be best because gas fueled systems are better at heating colder air.
These systems provide you with an all-in-one solution for your heating and/or air conditioning. They are deemed a “packaged system” because they are one unit housed in a single cabinet. They are typically installed:
- Outdoors at ground level
- In crawl spaces
- On the roof (for horizontal or down-flow designs)
Different Packaged Air Systems Available:
Packaged Air Conditioner
There are higher efficiency units available that offer better cooling efficiency and better humidity control but generally are for smaller capacities than central air units. They are available with water cooled condensers or air cooled condensers.
Packaged Heat Pump
The packaged heat pump houses heating, air conditioning and air-handling functions within one unit that uses heat pump technology. High efficiency packaged heat pumps come equipped with two-stage heating and air conditioning for maximum efficiency and comfort.
Packaged Dual Fuel (Hybrid System)
The packaged dual fuel system uses gas or propane for fuel for both your heating and cooling. It consists of a heat pump that cools and dehumidifies your home in the summer and provides high efficiency heating in the colder seasons. Fuel fed systems like this produce better heat when temperatures drop below freezing.
Packaged Gas Electric
The packaged gas electric unit give you electric air conditioning with gas heating. The all-electric high-efficiency air conditioner gives perfect cool air in warm temperatures and the gas heat gives you better, more efficient heating in cold climates. This system gives you the best energy usage for climates that regularly drop below freezing.
Why Would I Want A Packaged Air System?
Packaged air systems give you the benefits of space efficiency as well as energy efficient performance. They often offer you higher cooling performance as well as higher heating performance because they use the best methods to treat the air for your individual situation and combine them in one packaged unit.
