If your PTAC unit has problems, we can fix it, whether the coils are iced over, the filter is clogged, it’s spitting water or the system just won’t deliver the temperature you need to be comfortable.
PTAC units, commonly called window units and wall units, generally provide both cool air and warm air. They work like this: The compressor sends refrigerant to cool the coils. The coils attract heat and humidity, which they send outside the unit. For heating, the refrigerant warms the coils and sends the heated air into the room. They’re ideal for apartments, dormitories, motels and other buildings.
When a unit spits water, its position may need to be adjusted. To function at its best, the unit should be level or tilted slightly to the outside so it can drain properly.
When a unit fails to cool or heat a room as desired, it may need refrigerant or a new thermostat, especially if it is several years old.
(First, however, see if furniture, curtains or something else is blocking the front of the AC and limiting the airflow.)
PTAC units come in two styles – electric heat and heat pump. You can plug them into an outlet or have them hardwired to the building’s electric system. The electric units come with an electric element, which usually but not always lasts many years.
Keep it clean!
Like other HVAC systems, cleanliness is essential to operation of a Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner and its cousin, the Packaged Terminal Heat Pump.
Dirt and dust hamper the system’s operation, leading to iced-over coils, spitting water and other problems. It also can cause the system to turn on and off all the time. The results of a dirty system: Your utility bill rises and the unit does a poorer job – the definition of energy inefficiency!
Check the filter every 30 days or so and clean or replace it if it is dirty. A filter is much less expensive than a repair.
Our technicians can thoroughly clean the entire system for you, making sure that all parts are working and everything is in order. These units come with many parts – compressor, switches, and much more. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as you have heard many times.
