Packaged HVAC Units & Service in Twin Falls, ID

The air conditioning system most common for homes is known as a split system. This is because the system consists of two units; one housed indoors, the other outdoors. The inside unit absorbs heat and blows cooled air into the ductwork, and the outdoor unit exhausts the heat and houses the compressor that circulates refrigerant. But many commercial buildings use a different type of AC or heat pump system, called a packaged HVAC unit, which places all the components into a single cabinet. This type of system is now available for homes as well, and in some cases is a better option than using a split system.

At Evans Plumbing Inc we work with all kinds of air conditioning and heat pumps systems, and we install packaged units for both homes and businesses in Twin Falls, ID and the surrounding areas. If you’re interested in a packaged air conditioner or heat pump for your house, contact us and set up an appointment. We’ll also take care of maintenance and any repairs the system may need. Evans Plumbing at Your Door.

The Design of Packaged Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

A packaged HVAC unit works on the same principle as other heat pumps and air conditioners: a compressor circulates refrigerant between a set of coils, one that absorbs heat and one that releases it, and an air handler sends the conditioned air into a ventilation network. But a packaged HVAC unit has all these components in one place, an outside cabinet.

A return air duct leaves the house and connects to the unit, bringing the indoor air with it. The refrigerant goes through the two sets of coils to cool or heat the air, and then the blower fan sends the conditioned air back into the house through a second air duct.

Advantages of a Packaged Heat Pump or Air Conditioner System

The majority of homes use split air conditioning or heat pump systems. But there are a number of advantages to going with a packaged unit you may wish to consider:

  • Space–saving: If you have limited space in your house and it’s an inconvenience to fit half of an AC/heat pump in there, a split system is often a good solution.
  • Quiet: With the air handler also removed to the outside, a packaged HVAC unit creates very little indoor noise.
  • Ease of maintenance and service: With all the components in one place, packaged HVAC units are simple for professional technicians to maintain and repair. And the work won’t interfere with the inside of your house.
