I am planning to install a PTAC to heat and cool my 20x20 shop. Anyone have
experience (good or bad) with the different manufacturers of these units?
Frigidaire, GTE, Fedderer, Haier, Carrier, etc. Thanks.
Sounds like a difficult tradeoff. Each government employee would provide
about 300 Btu/h when at rest (most of the time), but they take up space,
and they would require bathrooms, vending machines, computers, copiers,
filing cabinets, and so on.
How about mounting a $69 window AC on a lazy susan and turning the warm
side to the indoors for heat, with a space heater for very cold days?
PTAC = Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner
PTHP = Packaged Terminal Heat Pump
This is the type of through the wall unit you commonly see in a motel.
I have used GE, Carrier, Sanyo with good success. Stay away from AAF
(American Air Filter) The other brands I have no experience with.
Fedders made lousy split systems but I hear their window units are OK.
Probably a 9000 BTU unit would do if you have decent insulation, but I
would recommend dong a load calculation first.
Home Depots got the Honeywell Vision PRO 8000 too, but its not near the stat
that I get from my supplier, for $75 more wholesale.
The one that HD sells for $99 we get for less, sooooo.either you WANT
humidistat controls, or you dont...
They sell the FocusPRO 5000 too....and it TOO is not the same stat that we
get from our suppliers.
Got to love marketing.
