What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Frequently, people don’t recognize all of the heating and cooling options that are accessible to them. But Brookwood Inc is here to remind you to think about each option and determine 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 take up indoor space putting up a furnace or air handler. When would you use a packaged unit? Packaged units are perfect if you are limited on the amount of space inside your home. Particularly, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you normally have extra storage space that can easily store components of your heating and cooling system. But if you remove that, it can be a challenge to find an ideal 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 within the exterior of your home or on the roof and links up to the ductwork through a small opening in the wall. It’s an efficient and effective option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our experts can chat with you about the different 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, regardless what Mother Nature throws at you in Newton. If you are not sure about packaged units or just want to check out the variety of solutions to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
