Wholesale Room Air Conditioners Buying Guide

In this case, we are referring to PTACs and ductless mini-splits as room air conditioners. 

Typically, PTAC units, or packaged terminal air conditioners, are the air conditioning units that you'll see in hotel rooms, hospital rooms, condominiums, and apartment buildings. Many are designed to go through walls, with vents and heat sinks both inside and outside of the unit. If you're looking to keep only one room or section of your space cool or warm, a PTAC unit is your best bet. 

Here is how to calculate the BTUs you’ll need for your PTAC unit:

150-450 square feet: 5000-10,000 BTUs

450-800 square feet: 10,000-15,000 BTUs

Typically, anything over 1,000 square feet will need a multi-room system. 

Some of our PTACs also come with heat kits for those who want to enable their PTACs to also heat a space or room. 

We offer standard and mini PTACs. 

A ductless system consists of one outdoor unit and one indoor unit connected by refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. Refrigerant is channeled directly to the source of the indoor unit, which typically consists of the air handler. The outdoor unit houses the compressor that brings warm or cold air into the space. Some models can have multiple room terminals hooked up to one single compressor. 

The ductless HVAC system works similarly to an air conditioning system, as it moves heat from one place to another. A reversing valve is then used in the warmer months to switch the flow of refrigerant to allow for cooling applications. From there, heat is absorbed from the inside of your home and moved outside to keep the space cool. Installation of these units is relatively simple as it only requires a hole to be drilled into a wall for the wiring and refrigerant line.

On our website, you can choose between a single-room and a multi-room ductless mini-split system. 

A single-zone configuration would require just three basic main requirements: one outdoor unit, one indoor unit, and a refrigerant lineset. On the contrary, a multi-zone configuration would require more combinations of this system, and is typically for those who want to cool an entire space or home, and not just one or two rooms. 

Indoor Unit Sizing Guide:

6,000 BTU: 150 – 300 sq ft

9,000 BTU: 300 – 500 sq ft

12,000 BTU: 400 – 650 sq ft

15,000 BTU: 500 – 800 sq ft

18,000 BTU: 600 – 1,000 sq ft

24,000 BTU: 800 – 1,300 sq ft

Disclaimer: Before making a purchase, you should always check first with your qualified installer to figure out what unit is best for your home or space.
