If you’re used to seeing home air conditioning systems, you’ve probably become accustomed to split systems—those that rely on both an indoor and outdoor unit to remove heat from your home and release it outdoors. Usually, an indoor unit with an evaporator coil helps to absorb heat in your home and circulate cool air, while a large outdoor unit with a condenser coil and a compressor dissipates the heat into the air.
This type of system is very common for residential use, but there are other options. Packaged air conditioning units are self-contained systems, meaning that the indoor and outdoor components typically separate in most air conditioning systems are located in one unit. For some types of homes and for commercial properties, this can have many benefits.
Ease of Maintenance and Service
One benefit of packaged air conditioning units is that maintenance and service are often easier when an air conditioning technician can access all of the different parts of your system from one location. Most systems separate the evaporator and condenser coil, so a maintenance technician may need to spend a lot of time in your home to inspect and clean all components. With packaged units, a technician can inspect every area of your AC with ease. Similarly, technicians can often locate repair issues more easily when you experience problems with your unit.
Convenience of a Single Unit
Furthermore, a single unit may be more convenient for homeowners and businesses that have special requirements for space and design. Packaged air conditioning can be installed in many ways including wall-mounted, window, and rooftop units. Wall-mounted and rooftop units can remain fairly hidden from view while continuing to function like any other system, using the building’s ductwork to cool one or multiple rooms. For homes without ducts or those without space for an outdoor unit, a window or wall mounted packaged unit can be the perfect solution.
