Unit Heaters, PTAC, Thru-the-Wall

Unit heaters can be terrific solutions to heating and cooling needs. Usually for one room or area, unit heaters are compact, versatile and powerful units. We carry 3 distinct style of unit heaters, each for a specific application or use.

 

The PTAC style are most commonly found in hotels due to their compact nature and quiet, powerful heating and cooling capabilities.

 

Thru-the-Wall heaters are most often found in apartments and condominiums. These air conditioners are designed specifically for use in a wall and what separates them from others is that air & moisture are ventilated exclusively through the rear.They fit through a hole in an exterior wall and are generally used to cool a single room.


Our hanging furnaces mount from the ceiling in garages, warehouses, factories, etc. and are for commercial and residential usage. Hanging heaters are a type of forced air ductless heater that delivers heat by burning gas and dispensing it through the fan or blower.We have selections for regular combustion (Indoor Air) heat as well as separate Combustion (Outdoor Air) heaters. Unit heaters can be vented horizontally or vertically and have multiple suspension points, allowing for flexible installation. Additionally we offer a variety of installation components. With the convinient heat that these systems bring, you can enjoy heat in the garage, barn or virtually wherever you need a heat device off the floor and out of the way.

  • These Amana PTAC ( Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner) units are often referred to as a ‘hotel style unit’ and offer both AC and heat. These are a thru the wall packaged systems that are ideal for providing heat and AC to offices, apartments and hotels. They’re reliable, and deliver efficient and quiet heat & AC which makes them ideal for rooms that require independent heating & cooling. There are 3 essential components to a new PTAC, the main A/C or heat pump unit, the wall sleeve and the exterior grille. You must have these 3 components for a PTAC heat/AC system to operate properly. The chassis is the main component in the system, The wall sleeve is an insulated steel casing and the grille protects the coils on the back of the chassis and also separates the fresh air which is coming in from the hot discharge air going out.

  • While similar to the PTAC, Thru the Wall units are single, self-contained heat & AC units that exhaust heat and humidity from the room. Louvers bring in fresh air, the air runs through coils, which are cooled by the compressor using refrigerant and then the fan pushes the cool air back into the room. These Apartment Style heat & AC Systems are designed specifically for use in a wall and what separates them from the rest is that air & moisture are ventilated exclusively through the rear.They fit through a hole in an exterior wall and are generally used to cool a single room. Thru the wall units provide dependable heating and cooling comfort for all types of new and existing constructions such as high rise condominiums, garden apartments, retirement villages, luxury town homes and hotels. With the options of Gas Heat & Electric Cooling and All Electric Heating & Cooling in a totally self-contained package offers easy access and efficiency.

    Here is a general idea of how the furnace works to provide your space with heat: When there is a need for heat, the fuel from your natural gas line flows through a gas valve inside the garage heater. A spark or pilot flame ignites the fuel and a flame is produced inside a heat exchanger. When the heat exchanger reaches a pre-set temperature, a fan turns on which blows space air through the warm heat exchanger. The air entering the heat exchanger absorbs the heat from the heat exchanger, resulting in a warmer discharge heat. As the fuel is burned, by-products of combustion leave the garage heater through a vent pipe also called a chimney. Forced are heaters are: 

    •Efficient. 
    •Powerful, fast self contained heat producers. They don't rely on a centralized boiler to supply heat. 
    •Low clearance requirements on low profile heaters. 
    •Most heaters have adjustable louvers to help direct heat where you need it.
    •Durable. All unit casings are treated for corrosion resistance and finished with a baked-on, high solids paint. 
    •Huge range of sizes and styles to match the heater to your heating load. If selected properly, you don’t have to worry about under or over sizing. 
    •The fan can run in the summer without heat to help circulate air. 
    •Natural gas garage heaters are always ready to run. You don’t need to worry about replenishing your fuel supply in order to get heat. 

  • Unit heaters are forced air ductless heaters that provide heating in residential and commercial open spaces such as garages, offices and warehouses. Proper venting and installation is important for safe use. Components include mounting suspension rods and gas or venting pipes.
