What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Cooling, Heating Many times, people don’t realize all of the heating and cooling choices that are available to them. But J.L. Brady Company 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 waste indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect 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 typically have extra storage space that can easily fit components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be difficult to find an perfect location and you likely want to use that space for another purpose. The units are very compact, which leaves a small footprint and makes installation that much quicker and easier. They can be installed in 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 useful option that doesn’t take up too much space. Our technicians can talk with you about the various 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 comfortable throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Moline.
