Mobile Homes Require Specially Certified Systems to Work Properly

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

We created a separate and distinct category for mobile home equipment because of the unique demands placed on cooling and heating systems used in these applications. The primary difference between a mobile home air conditioning and heating system and a system designed for a site-built home is the way it is ducted, vented, and installed.

The ducting in a mobile home is smaller and therefore more restrictive, so the air conditioning blower must be a “High Static Design” to overcome the greater resistance to airflow. This ensures proper air delivery from each supply register. Standard air conditioners without the proper high static rating by the manufacturer will not provide proper air delivery in a mobile home application.

Thermocool Will Properly Size Your AC & Heating System

The most common air conditioning and heating system used for mobile or modular homes is called a package unit. The easiest way to determine if you have a package type system (or self-contained as they are sometimes called) is to look outside at your air conditioner. A package unit is larger and has 2 ducts connected directly to it. There is no indoor unit when you have a package unit. Everything you need is in one easy-to-install package.

Not all Package units are certified by the manufacturer to provide high static airflow. In fact, most are not. Improperly selected package systems have to work much harder to provide the proper air delivery throughout your home, increasing energy consumption and reducing life expectancy. Always ask for proof that the system proposed for your home is certified by the manufacturer for use in mobile homes.

The Facts

  • Package units are unique, all-in-one systems that supply both cooling and heating equipment in one “package.” These units sit on the ground outside of your home.
  • Package units come in two forms:
    • Packaged heat pumps offer heating and cooling using heat pump technology.
    • Packaged air conditioners cool your home and can heat it as well, using electrical strip heat. This type is less expensive to purchase but will cost more to operate in the winter. Most of our customers prefer a heat pump for long term energy efficiency.

BENEFITS

  • Space efficiency – Unlike split-system units found in many site-built homes, all components of a complete heating and cooling system are contained in one location, making package units ideal for situations in which indoor space is at a premium.
  • Energy-efficient heating and cooling performance – All of our package units offer 14 SEER or higher cooling performance
