A Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (often abbreviated PTAC) is a type of self-contained heating and air conditioning system commonly found in hotels, motels, senior housing facilities, hospitals, condominiums, apartment buildings, add-on rooms & sunrooms. Many are designed to go through a wall, having vents and heat sinks both inside and outside. Different standard dimensions are available including 42×16 inches (1067 x 406 mm), 36x15 inches, and 40x15 inches.
There are numerous benefits that can be realized by installing a new PTAC unit in any climate from Toronto to Texas, regardless of whether it is a new construction, a retrofit or a replacement for an existing PTAC unit.
Newer PTAC units offer quiet operation through the use of multiple fan speeds to significantly reduce operation noise. Sleeker units are available which take up less floor space. There are also often options for either wired or wireless thermostats to provide additional temperature control and comfort.
PTACs can have two types of heat: Heat Pump or Electric Heat
Heat Pump (reverse cycle)
The heat pump reverses the cooling cycle on the air conditioner. The refrigerant is used to heat the coils, and after the air passes over the hot coils the heated air is pushed back into the room. This type of heat will work up until it is 40 degrees Fahrenheit outside and is ideal for warmer climates. Most PTAC units with a heat pump will come with electric heat back up for cooler winter temperatures.
Cost effective per unit
Units with electric heat will have an additional heating element near the vents that are heated using electricity. The air is heated when it passes over the element. Units with electric heat generally last longer than the heat pump types and are quieter, but are not as energy efficient.
