Manhattan PTAC Installation: What is PTAC?
PTAC stands for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner. PTAC is a smaller heating and air conditioning unit commonly used in hotel/motel rooms, hospital rooms and smaller apartments. Most look similar to window air conditioner units and are situated through a wall, having vents and heat sinks both inside and outside. Unlike a typical window AC unit which only provides cooling comfort during the hot summer months, a PTAC system also provides heat to warm your surroundings during the bitter cold of winter.
Window AC vs PTAC Unit
Although window AC units and PTAC units look similar, the two are not interchangeable. With a window air conditioning unit, you simply open the window and place the unit in position. PTAC units require a more detailed installation and are a permanent fixture to the building. You need to have a opening put in the wall for the sleeve before the unit can be installed.
