Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTAC) and Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP)

Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTAC) and Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP) are ductless, convenient, all-in-one heating and cooling solutions for commercial spaces.

PTACs are through-the-wall air conditioners. Since they are commonly seen in hotel rooms, they are known to a lot of people as "thru the wall hotel air conditioners" or "hotel wall air conditioners." While mainly used in hospitals, the hospitality industry and offices, PTACs/PTHPs are also smart choices for home renovations such as attic or garage conversions where additional cooling and heating is required.

Categories of PTAC units:
• Cooling With Electric Heat PTAC
• Cooling With Gas Heat PTAC
• Cooling With Electric Heat PTAC
• Cooling With Hydronic Heat and Optional Electric Heat PTAC

They don't required ducting because they slide into the wall for installation. One side supplies conditioned air inside and the other side ventilates outside. Their work horse capacity, compact design (standard 42" width and slim profile) coupled with high tech functions bump them to the commercial level. All PTACs offer cooling and electric heat with an electric heat strip.

But PTAC heat pumps or Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner Heat Pump (PTHP) units stand out for their super energy efficiency. PTHP's provide the majority of their heat and cooling output using energy-efficient reverse cycle technology. The electric heat strip only serves as "emergency" or auxiliary heat when the outside temperature drops so low that the heat pump begins to lose efficiency. Heat pumps use about 1/3 less electricity than standard air conditioning and heating. Learn about the advantages of heat pumps.
