A completely redesigned and re-engineered packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) offers features that deliver reliable operation and superior comfort, said the company. The two-motor design allows the indoor motor to run at slower speeds, reducing sound levels indoors. The tangential blower wheel has nearly five times the surface area of a typical fan used on other PTACs, claimed the manufacturer, resulting in a more uniform airflow over a wider path for faster, more evenly distributed air. It has three fan speeds in cooling and heating modes. The soft start/stop fan delay feature reduces transitional noise that is usually associated with compressor start-up. To adjust the heater size on any PTAC unit, simply unplug the attached power cord and connect a new cord to achieve the desired size. The separate heating and cooling limits provide greater control over operating temperature ranges and help control energy consumption costs. Centralized desk control and compatibility with energy management systems can boost efficiency and lower operational costs. The units have EERs up to 12 and COPs up to 3.4 for increased energy savings. The Diamonblue advanced corrosion protection protects the outdoor coil against deterioration and extends unit life, especially in harsh coastal environments. The built-in fresh-air dampers bring in 75 cfm of outside air when desired.
