Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners and Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps

September 16th 2014

On September 16, 2014 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a Federal Register notice of proposed rulemaking and public meeting for energy conservation standards for Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTACs) and Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHPs). The proposed standards for PTACs and PTHPs represent an improvement in energy efficiency of four to seven percent compared to the efficiency levels specified by ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2013, depending on the equipment capacity.
