Package Unit Solutions for Facilities Management

Package units are an important part of facilities management. They are a type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment that provides heating and/or cooling for a space. They are typically used in commercial and industrial applications, though they can also be used in residential settings.

What are Package Units?

Package units are generally defined as all-in-one HVAC systems. They are designed to provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning in a single system. Package units are usually installed outdoors and are designed to provide all the necessary functions for heating and cooling a space.

They typically consist of two main components: an outdoor unit, known as a condenser, and an indoor unit, known as an evaporator. The condenser is responsible for absorbing heat energy from the outdoors and transferring it to the indoor air. The evaporator then distributes the cooled air around the space.

Benefits of Package Units

Package units are a popular choice for facilities management for a number of reasons. They are relatively simple to install and require minimal maintenance. They also provide efficient cooling and heating, as well as low operating costs.

Additionally, package units are typically designed to be as quiet as possible. This makes them an attractive choice for facilities that require a quiet, comfortable work environment.

Considerations for Package Units

When choosing package units for facilities management, there are several things to consider. First, the size and layout of the space should be considered. The size of the package unit should be based on the size of the space and the amount of air that needs to be cooled or heated.

Additionally, the local climate should be taken into consideration. The type of package unit chosen should be able to handle the local weather conditions.

Finally, it is important to consider the cost of the package unit. The cost of the unit should be taken into consideration when deciding which type of package unit is best for the facility.


Package units are an important part of facilities management. They are an efficient, cost-effective way to provide heating and cooling for a space. When choosing a package unit, the size and layout of the space, local climate, and cost should all be taken into consideration. With the right package unit, facilities management can enjoy comfortable temperature year-round.
