A packaged unit is an outdoor, all-inclusive HVAC air conditioning and heating system that is placed either outside on the roof or next to a house, and produces air that runs throughout ducts to cool or heat the entire house.
The major difference between a split system and a packaged unit is that a packaged unit includes all of the components into one single unit for both heating and cooling, which is placed outside a home or establishment, whereas the split system divides the components into separate units for heating and cooling and are placed both inside and outside. Now that you know the differences, all you have to do is decide if you need a split system or a packaged unit!
There are several benefits with purchasing a packaged unit compared to the other HVAC options, such as versatility. Since a single unit has more placement options, lower utility costs, more interior space, easy and cost-efficient repairs, undemanding installation, and more power to heat/cool large spaces, it’s a great solution for people on a budget.
Prices for packaged HVAC units will vary depending on the type you choose. For gas packaged systems, prices are estimated to be $2,706 to $4,970. Straight cool systems, which are air conditioning systems, are estimated to range from $2,310-$3,959. Heat pump systems are estimated to price from $2,163-$4,527. The prices of these HVAC systems could fluctuate depending on tax and shipping. The other types of HVAC systems can fluctuate in price as well.
