What you need to know about packaged units

July 06, 2018

Often times, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling opportunities that are available to them. But Central Air LLC is here to remind you to take into account each option and establish which type of system will best meet your needs.

One of those possibilities is a packaged unit. What exactly is that? It’s an all-in-one heating and cooling system installed outside, which means you don’t need to misuse indoor space accommodating a furnace or air handler.

When would you use a packaged unit?

Packaged units are wonderful if you are restrained on the amount of space inside your home. Specifically, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be a challenge to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for a different purpose.

The units are very compact, which leaves a tiny footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed inside the exterior of your home or on the roof and hooks up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and helpful option that doesn’t occupy too much space.

Our professionals can talk with you about the assorted models, including gas and electric; electric and electric; heat pump; and dual-fuel options. You’ll be able to find a model that will keep you at ease throughout the year, for whatever Mother Nature throws at you in Brookfield.

If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to check out the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the correct place.
