The Benefits of Installing New and Replacement Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner Units

A packaged terminal air conditioner (commonly referred to as a PTAC) is a compact, self-contained air conditioning and heating unit that is most commonly used to control the temperature of a single room or living space. The units are self-contained, which means that they will only heat or cool the area where they are installed. As with most air conditioning units, PTAC units are designed to deliver cool and warm air into a room or living space. The efficiency at which these units operate and the on-demand heating and cooling they provide for single rooms is an excellent fit for applications in the hospitality industry such as hotels, motels and resorts. These PTAC units are also commonly used in apartment buildings, office buildings, university dormitories and many older buildings.

The uses for PTAC units continue to grow as more people look to take advantage of the energy efficiency and simple installation that these units provide. New applications include residential use; PTAC’s can be installed in new home additions and sunrooms where it is too expensive or difficult to extend existing ductwork.

What Sizes of PTAC Units Are Available?

There are a number of different manufacturers offering a range of industry standard sizes of PTAC units. Industry standard sizes are designed to simplify the process of installing PTAC units for new construction, renovations and replacing/retrofitting existing units. These sizes include 16” x 42”, and 16” x 26”.
Installing a PTAC in an industry standard size makes it easier to replace the unit in the future, but some manufacturers produce non-standard and customized size packaged terminal air conditioners for specific applications. There are premium quality manufacturers who offer a complete selection of replacement PTACs specifically designed to offer an direct fit for many original equipment manufacturers of PTAC’s that are discontinued or no longer available.

What Level of Energy Efficiency Can You Expect from PTAC Units?

PTAC units are a very economical and efficient method of heating and cooling a single enclosed area. The energy efficiency that you can expect will depend on a number of factors including:
  • The Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) rating for the specific unit being installed. Higher EER ratings correlate to higher energy efficiency and lower operating costs for the unit.
  • The capacity of the unit and how it corresponds to the size of the room it is installed in. It is vital to determine the optimal capacity unit for efficient use in the room.
  • How well the area is insulated and quality of the installation
When it comes to finding new construction, renovation or replacement PTAC units, trust a supplier that has a solid reputation and that provides a unique mix of premium quality HVAC products. Choose a supplier with excellent customer service, product availability and turn-key operations for the best experience purchasing and installing the perfect packaged terminal air conditioner units for your needs.
