Package Unit Services in Phoenix from Cool Touch
There are a number of solutions for home cooling. Commonly, a split system is used in which the condenser unit outside compresses the refrigerant to cool it and the evaporator coils and air handler inside distribute cooled air to your home. A packaged unit combines these functions into a single unit, streamlining the process to result in higher efficiency and a unit that can match the space needs of smaller homes.
If you are interested in a package unit for your home in Phoenix, call Cool Touch today to discuss your options. We can help you select a package unit that fits the particular needs of your home and family and then install it for you.
Selecting a New Phoenix Package Unit
Package units are unique in that they contain every component needed to heat and cool a home. There is no need for an indoor unit or a separate furnace because the package unit is a fully functional heat pump and, if needed, can contain a gas furnace back up. These are not often needed in Arizona, though, as temperatures rarely drop below 40 degrees.
To select a package unit, you need to first consider the sizing of the system. It must match the specific needs of your home, which means you need a heat load calculation performed to determine how much space the system will need to be able to cool. Additionally, you need to ensure that the energy efficiency of your new package unit matches the specific needs outlined by your budget. If you cannot afford to spend more than a certain amount of money per month on heating or cooling, it may be worthwhile to spend more money and install a unit that will match your particular needs.
Package units are measured in SEER for air conditioning and HSPF for heating. If the system has a gas furnace, it will likely also have an AFUE rating which reflects its overall gas heating efficiency level. The higher the ratings, the more costly the initial system installation; remember, though, that the higher initial investment can save you money in the long run. This is not always the case, of course, and this decision should be left to guess work. The Phoenix package unit technitions at Cool Touch can help determine if this is a viable option for you.
Phoenix Package Unit Maintenance and Repairs
Once you have chosen a package unit and it has been installed, the process of having it maintained becomes a necessity. We recommend having a professional visit your home annually to tune up your package unit. If you use it for both heating and cooling, it is recommended that you do this twice a year, once in the fall and once in the early spring.
If your system ever starts to show signs of wear, you should also call us for immediate repair service. We offer emergency repairs and are available 24/7 if the problem is urgent. We are also available for scheduled calls if the need arises.
For those of you in Phoenix remember: whatever your package unit needs, call the experts of Cool Touch today for immediate, professional service.
