Stay comfortable year-round with a Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner. Part heater, part AC, these convenient devices make it easy to adjust the climate of a single room. Often used in commercial environments, most people are familiar with PTAC units as hotel air conditioners. However, they can work just as well in a home setting.

Heat Pump vs Electric Heat

If you plan on fighting Chicago winters or other seriously cold environments, a PTAC with electric heat is the way to go. The alternative, models with heat pumps, are less expensive upfront. But, they aren't as efficient. If outside temperatures even approach freezing, you'll be much more comfortable with electric heat. The heating and cooling power of a PTAC is measured in BTUs. For the most effective climate control plan on roughly 30 BTUs per square foot.

Amps and Volts

Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners often require more power than a standard wall outlet will provide. Most require a 220V outlet on a 20 amp breaker. But be sure to double-check the power needs of any model you're interested in before buying.

Because PTACs are in-wall units, most are professionally installed. If you're in the Chicagoland area, give us a call at 800-860-3577 so we can help. If not, make sure your installers are comfortable with both carpentry and basic electrical work, as they will likely need to install a 220v outlet. And of course, wherever you live, feel free to give us a ring with any questions you may have.
