Wholesale Packaged Unit Heat Pumps Buying Guide

Especially for those with limited space in which to store their HVAC units, a packaged unit can be fairly beneficial due to its spatially efficient design. Package units are located either on the roof or on the side of a building, and they house a number of combined HVAC systems, like the packaged air conditioners that include a compressor, coils and air handler, the packaged heat pumps that contain a heat pump and often a electric heat strip, a packaged gas-electric unit that combines an air conditioner with a gas-powered furnace, and a packaged dual-fuel unit that contains a heat pump and a gas furnace. There are no indoor components of this central air system. 

In order to pick out the best heat pump and electric heat package unit, we can give you a rough estimate of the tonnage that you will need to cool or heat your space, keeping in mind that any space that is 1,000 square feet or less can simply benefit from a 1.5-ton heat pump:

1,000-1,250 square feet: 2 Tons

1,250-1,500 square feet: 2.5 Tons

1,500-1,750 square feet: 3 Tons

1,750-2,000 square feet: 3.5 Tons

2,000-2,500 square feet: 4 Tons

2,500-3,000 square feet: 5 Tons
