What you need to know about packaged units Posted July 6, 2018 Often times, people don’t grasp all of the heating and cooling options that are offered to them. But Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is here to remind you to consider each option and decide which type of system will best meet your needs. One of those choices 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 accommodating 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. Especially, if you have a crawlspace instead of a basement. With a basement, you usually have extra storage space that can easily house components of your heating and cooling system. But if you exclude that, it can be difficult 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 small footprint and makes installation that much efficient and easier. They can be installed within 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 effective option that doesn’t cover too much space. Our technicians can inform 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 at ease throughout the year, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you in Moline. If you are unacquainted with packaged units or just want to peruse the variety of choices to match your heating and cooling needs, you are in the right place.
