Signs You Need To Replace Your PTAC Unit
In general, the average lifespan of a PTAC unit is about seven or so years. When the unit is maintained well, it can last up to 10 years. However, most business owners wait until the very last second to trade out their old PTAC unit for a newer one. Especially if the older one is still working well enough.
However, as you'd expect, operating an outdated PTAC unit can cause problems. Not to mention requiring more maintenance headaches and higher utility bill. There is no definitive guideline, though, on when to exactly replace an older PTAC unit. But your old unit will eventually begin to show some signs that they are nearing the end.

Operating outdated PTAC units can cause problems, not to mention lead to more maintenance headaches and higher utility bills. Even though there’s no definitive guideline for replacing PTAC units, your old units will begin to show three tell-tale signs as they near the end of their life cycle.
Sign #1: PTAC Unit Isn't As Efficient As It Used To Be
New PTAC units are known for their improvement in energy efficiency. These units can be retrofitted to simple replace older models. So buying an updated model is typically more energy efficient than buying the old, identical model.
The Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER rating) measures how efficiently the PTAC unit converts electricity into output energy. So it is important to pay attention to this rating when looking to upgrade your PTAC unit. And the EER drops as time goes by, too. So if there has been a drop in the EER rating of your PTAC unit, then it is time to invest in a newer model.
And think about the upgrade as an investment, because you will be spending more up front. However, a more efficient PTAC unit will save you money on your utility bills. So in the long run you will save money!
Sign #2: Your PTAC Unit Is No Longer EPA Compliant
As time goes on, the compliance regulations for the EPA advance. So, if your PTAC unit is older and not being updated, then there is a chance that the unit no longer is EPA compliant. And thus harming the environment. Newer units will stay up to code with the EPA compliance regulations.
In general, freon is phasing out of production with PTAC units. To be more eco-friendly, manufacturers are using coolant instead. With our PTAC services, we can upgrade your unit or simply replace it with an eco-friendly version that is EPA compliant.
Sign #3: PTAC Unit Is Making Excessive Noises
We have all heard it before. That appliance that is making more noise than in the past. And we all know what that means: you need a new appliance. Older PTAC units are no different. These older units are more prone to squeaks, whistles, and rattles. And these noises are a nuisance to any patrons or guests. Nobody wants to hear these loud noises when there is an easy fix.
When you invest in a quieter PTAC unit, you will be making your guests and customers happier. Without them even knowing it! Sometimes it is hard to put into words how annoying these loud noises are and can lead to complaints if not dealt with. Common complaints for older units are temperature extremes, poor air circulation or quality, and noisy/inefficient.
With our PTAC unit replacement services, we will make sure those noises subside. And that a newer, more quiet, unit is there in its place. Allowing you to run your business more smoothly and quietly!
