Homes with space concerns, like small yards or little interior space for an accessible air handler, do well with packaged systems. When your indoor space doesn’t have room for a big air handler, the package unit can go outside. If your home doesn’t have much yard space, and you don’t want to donate any to an HVAC system, the package unit can go on the roof. It’s not the most attractive place to stick an HVAC system, but it’s better than using up your outdoor living space. After all, wouldn’t you rather have as much yard space as you can?
With a packaged system, all major HVAC components are easy for your technician to reach when it comes to maintenance. The tech has to visit one spot to service almost everything. The only aspect of the system not included in the package is the ducts, which run through your whole house. When you have space issues, the packaged system’s one location makes completing maintenance simpler. That way, the technician only has to reach one location, not two, to visit the important parts of the HVAC system.
It might seem obvious to put HVAC components where people can access them. Unfortunately, some older homes have air handlers boxed in the walls with only small hatches or outdoor units squeezed behind sheds or near bushes, making them difficult (or impossible) to service. The more access we have, the better, and a packaged unit gives us a look at everything at once.
Packaged Air Advantage: Low Indoor Noise
No indoor component means a quieter home, too. If the packaged unit remains in good condition, it shouldn’t make enough noise to disturb you inside. The same should be true of split units, but sometimes older air handlers develop annoying noises that homeowners can’t stand. Noise shouldn’t be the major factor influencing your package or split HVAC decision, but it’s always something to think about.
One type of air conditioner, the split, works by providing air from a wall mounted cooling unit or vents in the floor (which will be discussed in another post). It is called a split air conditioner because it has an inside and an outside part. Most central heating units are of this type.
A package HVAC unit combines multiple units, such as an air conditioner and heater, into a single unit. The unit is usually placed outside. Split systems, on the other hand, divide each system into its own unit, so your heater and air conditioner are separate.
The maximum allowable distance between the indoor and the outdoor units of split AC can be about 15 meters.
