BlocPower and Fujitsu Introduce the Split Terminal Heat Pump to the U.S. PTAC Retrofit Market
Built in 2000, 187-unit apartment complex in Loring Ave, Brrokyln, NY, had PTAC units at the end of their lifespan (typically 7-10 years). Replacing these units with
split terminal heat pumps is a win-win for the property owner and tenants alike.
Split terminal heat pumps (STHP) from Fujitsu utilize the existing PTAC footprint for seamless installation, making them an ideal option for apartment complexes, offices, hotels and other applications needing a straightforward and minimally invasive retrofit.
Here’s why the STHP is a smart choice for a PTAC retrofit:
- Fujitsu’s ENERGY STAR-rated STHP model, suitable for cold weather climates, has up to a 21.3 SEER
- Save up to 58% in electricity costs compared to conventional PTAC
- Rest easy with sound levels up to 87% quieter than a PTAC
- Stay comfortable with precise and consistent temperature control coupled with brand new airtight sleeves that prevent drafts
- Install easily into the existing footprint of the PTAC unit
Already widely in use throughout Japan, the split terminal heat pump has finally arrived in the United States. BlocPower has begun installation at several apartment complexes reliant on troublesome and aging PTAC units
