By replacing old inefficient Packaged Terminal Air Conditioning (PTAC) units with a Packaged Terminal Heat Pump (PTHP) you can reduce your building’s heating and cooling costs significantly.

Conventional PTAC units are often found in hotel and motel rooms and offer individualized temperature control. Older PTAC systems use electric resistance coils which is one of the most expensive ways to heat a space. Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHPs) utilize heat pump technology and are three times as efficient as PTAC units, helping you reduce your business’ energy costs.
