It’s April. In most places this would mean mild weather, sunny days, and perhaps a breeze. It sounds like a dream. In Central Texas April means daily life. Oppressive heat, rarely broken by torrential rain, or perhaps a drizzle. Bottom line, our weather is unpredictable. That is why the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units remain a central figure in homes and buildings across the land. Lately, we at Alamo Austin Air Conditioning & Heating have been focusing on the traditional HVAC units. Today, though, we are going to discuss packaged terminal air conditioning (PTAC) and PTAC repair.
Most houses in Central Texas are more accustomed to the traditional indoor HVAC unit. Allow us to explain. You’ll typically find these box-like units along walls with windows, as they usually have vents that run both inside and outside. Interestingly, most PTAC units do not require condensate drain piping. Many hotels, motels, add-on rooms, and condos have these units. Using electricity, most models are only capable for warming or cooling one single space, with a capacity ranging from 7,000 – 19,000 BTUs (British Thermal Units). This means should one unit stop working, then that entire room becomes uncomfortable. PTAC repair is not difficult, but it certainly require finesse, finesse which Alamo Austin Air Conditioning & Heating is glad to give.
