SAN ANTONIO - Friedrich Air Conditioning has introduced a completely re-engineered packaged terminal air conditioners (PTAC) that the company says is quieter, provides simplified installation and maintenance, as well as energy management features.

“This new PTAC is a direct result of customer feedback. We listened to their needs and focused our attention on delivering quiet operation, excellent air distribution, cost-saving energy management features, and simplified installation and maintenance to reduce the burden on facility staff,” said Chuck Campbell, Friedrich’s vice president of marketing and sales.

Features of the new PTAC include:

• Two motor design - With separate indoor and outdoor motors, the indoor motor can run at slower speeds, which reduces sound levels indoors.

• Tangential blower wheel - This new feature has nearly five times the surface area of a typical fan used on conventional PTACs, says the company. The result is a more uniform airflow over a wider path for faster, more evenly distributed air.

• Three speed fan - Friedrich offers three fan speeds in cooling and heating modes. Soft start/stop fan delay feature reduces transitional noise that is usually associated with compressor start up.

• Modular design and easier access - The modular design provides easy access to components for cleaning and repairs, including interchangeable, front access air filters.

• Separate heating and cooling limits - These provide greater control over operating temperature ranges and help control energy consumption costs.

• Desk control ready - Centralized desk control and compatibility with energy management systems can boost efficiency and lower operational costs.

• Fresh air dampers - Friedrich’s PTACs have built-in fresh air dampers to bring in 75 cfm of outside air when desired and washable, antimicrobial air filters.
