Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps
For qualifying commercial buildings
Download the PDF
Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHPs) are an efficient replacement for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTACs), often found in commercial buildings with small living spaces. Both offer similar air-cooling performance; however, instead of electric resistance heating elements, PTHPs use energy-saving heat pump technology for consistent, even warmth inside when the weather cools. Compact and easy to install, these units are ideal for commercial lodging and senior living facilities.
