A blog article regarding the availability of natural gas is coming and you will be able to get it here.
Can be configured as heat pumps, "gas packs", or hybrid sytems
May be described as an All-in-One System
Some models can be located adjacent to buildings, others require 18" of clearance
All the components of the system are located outside (no blower in attic, or closet)
Highest "end" models are not as efficient as high "end" split systems
All models currently utilize single stage or 2-stage compressors... models with variable speed compressors do not exist (yet).
In residential applications, most have duct systems located in the crawl space
For crawl space applications, packaged systems are much easier to service and maintain than "split system" models where the blower is located in the crawl space.
Some models are eligible for utility rebates
If you are interested in heating with gas fired packaged system in lieu of a heat pump packaged system, you can learn more about heating with an air conditioner with gas heat here, or a hybrid (Dual Fuel) system here.
