Wholesale Room Heat Pumps Buying Guide

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. 

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.

PTAC Heat Pumps

Similar to a classic HVAC system, the use of a PTAC focuses on helping you regulate your interior environment's temperature more efficiently. By having a greater level of control over the building's interior temperature, you get to reduce the risk of people inside feeling like their overheating or freezing. Temperature regulation improves comfort in any environment and can even enhance overall productivity in an office environment. 

When it comes to setting up a PTAC system, there are a few hardware pieces that need to be taken into consideration. Some people prefer to buy a complete system. Similar to your traditional HVAC systems for residential use, a PTAC system will also include all of the hardware you need for an efficient installation. 

On the other hand, there are times where single units are preferred. This could be the case when you have a broken piece of hardware. In this scenario, you have no need for a complete system. In other cases, you may prefer to buy individual units to have more control. 

A PTAC heat pump will generally form part of many system configurations. These heat pumps come in various models. When looking at providing this functionality to a specific room in the building, there are a few options to explore. A heat pump mini split, as part of your PTAC installation, is one option that should not be overlooked. 

The Furnace Outlet provides versatility when it comes to the installation of a PTAC system. If you are looking for single heat pump units that are compatible with your PTAC system, then we have the solution for you. Our large range of Goodman furnaces, heat pumps, and air conditioning units give you flexibility and customizable options – allowing for a more satisfying experience once you turn on the air conditioner. 

We also stock the required installation accessories and hardware, which your installer may need while they are mounting and installing the system. This includes even the smaller parts, ensuring there are no additional stops to make when buying the equipment needed for an efficient PTAC installation. 

Always speak to a professional before deciding which PTAC heat pump is the right one to buy. There are a lot of variables that go into the process of installing these systems. Whether you have an existing PTAC system that requires a heat pump or need an entirely new solution installed – ensuring all hardware is compatible with each other, as well as with the environment they will be used, is critical. 

Your installer should get a good view of the building's interior and consider which rooms you wish to cover with your PTAC heat pump. Their recommendations should not be taken lightly and should then be matched with the selection of options we have in our catalog.
