Efficient heating and cooling is essential for both home comfort and indoor air quality in Bellaire, League City, Texas and the surrounding communities. If you’re not getting the performance you want out of your HVAC system, it’s time to consider an upgrade. You’ll find several options available on the market, and navigating your choices for a new HVAC unit can be confusing. Simplify this upgrade by opting for a Carrier package unit instead of two separate installations. If you’re not familiar with the benefits of a packaged system for your home, you could be missing out on some great perks that impact efficiency, affordability, and more.

Two New Systems in One Installation

If you’re noticing poor performance and energy efficiency from both your heating and air conditioning units, you may find that you’re struggling with the choice of which to replace first. Are you more concerned with nice chilly cooling this summer or a warm cozy home in the winter? If you don’t want to choose, you can opt for a package unit instead. A packaged HVAC system includes both heating and cooling features in a single unit.

This means you’ll only have to choose one new system. You’ll pay for a single professional sizing and installation, and only one new product for your home. Eliminate the hassle of going through it all twice for separate heating and cooling systems. An efficient Carrier package unit will do it all.

Added Space in Your Home

Packaged units take up less space than a split system. This type of installation incorporates all your heating and cooling components in a single cabinet. If you want to free up some space in your home, this is an efficient way to do it. If you’re remodeling and want to reclaim some space, or you’re building a new home and want to maximize the available square footage for other items, consider a Carrier package unit.

If you’re replacing an existing package unit, you’ll want to stick with a similar upgrade so you’re not looking for more space in your house to accommodate an entirely separate system where you didn’t have one before.

Increased Energy Efficiency

A package unit is assembled in a controlled factory environment. The motors are balanced and refrigerant is charged before installation. When your new Carrier system arrives at your home, it’s already in its more efficient state. This eliminates added installation and calibration time for your HVAC technician, so you’re paying for a much quicker and more efficient installation process with this choice.

Shop for an ENERGY STAR qualified unit such as the Performance 16 Packaged Gas Furnace/Air Conditioner System 48VG-B for better energy efficiency than what you’ll enjoy with a standard system. You can also improve your energy efficiency by choosing a packaged hybrid system. Hybrid systems pair an electric heat pump with an oil, gas, or propane back-up unit. With this setup, you can enjoy the high-efficiency performance of a heat pump when you have only moderate heating needs. When temperatures fall below freezing, the backup heating will kick in to keep you cozy in any conditions.

Easy Access for Maintenance and Repairs

When your heating and cooling systems are combined in a single unit, your HVAC technician can access and service them more easily. This cuts back on the time and effort needed for repairs. You’ll also enjoy more efficient maintenance visits with this setup. You should have your HVAC system tuned up once a year for the best performance.

With separate heating and cooling units, you typically need to schedule two visits – one for your heating system in fall and another for cooling components in spring. Switch to a single packaged Carrier unit to cut back on your maintenance and get everything taken care of at once. Your time is valuable, and a package unit helps you make the most of it.
