PTACs or package terminal air conditioners are some of the most used air conditioners in the market today. They are self-contained and are commercial grade, making them convenient single units that you can install in a lot of buildings – whether it’s for residential, commercial, or industrial use.
If you’re planning to install one in your building, then having these compact yet reliable air conditioning units in your building will not only efficiently regulate the temperature in the room but would also help conserve energy, which makes this unit eco-friendly. However, you definitely need to conceptualize its design first in order to install one successfully. We listen to your requirements and do what we can to meet them. If you need quiet PTAC operation, we can integrate the best sound reduction technology into the design. If you have specific cooling needs, we can also cover whatever you have in mind. We offer detailed ventilation and air conditioning design drawings that are efficient and cost-effective. Allow us to make your building comfortable and productive by taking care of the best PTAC design for maximum convenience. Whatever kind of air conditioning and ventilation system you’re going for, we got you covered.
Fortunately, we at New York Engineers can take care of the design for you. We provide seamless MEP designs not only in New York but in other big cities too like Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Together, let us make your project ideas come to life!
Why Add a PTAC System in your Building?
A PTAC system in your building can regulate the room’s temperature efficiently as its compressor is designed to handle both the cooling and heating processes. When cooling, the compressor adds a refrigerant so that its coils will be cooled, thus attracting the humidity and heat around, which is then exhausted outside. When heating, the compressor reverses the process. This means that the coils are heated this time, which then creates heated air. Though larger than the typical air conditioners (through-the-wall-types), the PTAC is widely used in a lot of buildings like hotels, hospitals, and even residential buildings. The PTAC is flexible, so it’s really suitable to use in almost all types of structures.
For those who want a PTAC soon, do note that there are certain factors that you need to consider – the BTUs and Plug type. The BTUs or British Thermal Units is used as the PTACs units of power. This means that you’ll need more BTUs if you’re cooling a larger area. So, it’s crucial that you buy the right size. It’s really not necessary to install a PTAC with great BTUs when you have a small area as it does not promote efficiency. The Plug type, on the other hand, should also be considered. This comes with two parts – the amperage and voltage. Generally, the rule is that you must have a higher amperage to have a greater heating capacity. The PTAC can either be plugged and connected to the building’s wiring or a receptacle.
At New York Engineers, we’ll take care of the nitty-gritty details, so allow us to work on your project so that you’ll have nothing to think about anymore. We’ll just ask you the basics and we’ll do the rest for you. If you happen to be in need of a PTAC installed in your building, we at New York Engineers will gladly help by providing you with a reliable design that you can use as your accurate guide during your PTACs construction. With a PTAC design in place, there will be fewer mistakes and rework, promoting maximum productivity and efficiency for the whole team.
Benefits of Installing a PTAC in your Building
There are already a lot of people switching to PTACs. After all, they come with several advantages, and here’s the rundown:
- Cooling and Heating Feature
Now, you can already cool and heat a room by using a PTAC. Its compressor is designed to regulate the temperature efficiently. Its ability to reverse the cooling cycle definitely makes it a convenient and great investment.
The more air conditioning units upgraded, the greater the energy efficiency provided. This goes for the PTAC too as it’s a newer version than the window units. This makes them less costly than the older air conditioning units.
Maintenance is not so complicated with the PTAC unit. The filter is designed in a way that removing and cleaning it is easy, simple, and fast.
As we’re all about creating smart technology nowadays, the PTAC unit is also already designed to do just that. Plus, its built-in electronic temperature feature avoids excessive usage of electricity.
