Friedrich FreshAire® PTAC



Available Now!

Delivery & Installation



The most advanced PTAC ever.

Inverter compressor, award-winning and patented FreshAire make-up air system to help achieve ASHRAE 62.1 standards, ultra-quiet operation with the highest STC ratings in the industry*, and optional FreshAire IAQ accessories for healthy indoor air quality. FreshAire PTAC is not just best in class, it's in a class of its own.

Patented technology uses the inverter compressor and main cooling system to optimize temperature and humidity level of incoming air.

By introducing make-up air directly into the guestroom, rooftop central fresh air systems can be considerably downsized to service only the common areas of the property.

This greatly reduces the cost and complexity of hotel design and construction. Unlike other PTACs, the FreshAire PTAC utilizes the main evaporator coil and Merv 8 filters to truly condition and filter the outside ventilation air.

The widest cooling & heating range in the industry with only two models

Variable speed technology gives you the flexibility of a full line of PTACs with only two models, and offers the highest available capacity of any 42 x 16 PTAC on the market at over 17000 Btus.

The Friedrich Inverter variable speed compressor matches the unit output to the actual demand of the space for increased comfort and lower energy consumption.

  • 9000 BTU MODEL
    Can operate as low as 6462 Btus and as high as 12099 Btus.
  • 12000 BTU MODEL
    Can operate as low as 7929 Btus and as high as 17142 Btus.

That's like getting multiple PTACs in one.

FreshAire units with inverter compressors deliver equivalent SEERs up to 15.0; application HSPFs up to 11.57, and offer many advantages over traditional PTACs.

  • Improved dehumidification
  • Quieter start-up and operation
  • Better efficiency during part load
  • hours of cooling & heating
  • Reduced temperature swings improve guest comfort

Soft-start technology provides the smoothest PTAC sound available

The variable-speed operation of the FreshAire PTAC allows the unit to work at the optimal speed to match the true load of the room.

This not only provides the best energy consumption curve it also adds to guest comfort by eliminating the harsh start-ups associated with single speed compressors.
