Packaged HVAC Units in Raleigh, NC
Most homes use a type of central air conditioning system that consists of an outdoor cabinet (known as a condenser) located near the side of the house. Heat pumps are configured the same way, with the outdoor cabinet serving either as a condenser or evaporator depending on whether the system is in heating or cooling mode. But the standard AC or heat pump system for commercial buildings is different, with the entire system housed outdoors, usually in a rooftop unit.
These “all-in-one-cabinet” systems are called packaged HVAC units, and they’re also available for residential use. For some homes, a packaged air conditioner or heat pump is superior to one of the more familiar system. Comfort Master Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. offers complete installation and other services for packaged HVAC units in Raleigh, NC.

The Difference with Packaged Heat Pumps and Air Conditioners
What separates a packaged HVAC unit from the standard AC or heat pump for a house is that both the condenser and the evaporator are located in a single outdoor cabinet. In fact, all the components, including the blower fan, are placed in this one package, rather than split over two. (This is why standard AC and heat pumps are called split systems.)
A return duct from the house connects to the outdoor cabinet, bringing air from the building. The air then moves through the two sets of coils to condition it, and then the blower fan send the heated/cooled air back into the house through a supply duct and straight into the ventilation system.
Some Specific Benefits of Packaged Units
Since split systems are more common, why would you consider having a packaged HVAC unit installed for your home? There are number of benefits that may apply to your house:
- Size considerations: Smaller homes may simply not have the space for the indoor cabinet necessary for a split AC/heat pump. Packaged systems make a good space–saving alternative.
- Quiet operation: Commercial buildings benefit from the removal of the noise of an AC/heat pump entirely to the outdoors. This can also work for a home.
- Easy access: With all the components located on the outside of a house, a packaged HVAC unit is remarkably simple for professionals to maintain and repair.
