1) What BTU Capacity Should I Choose?
If you are replacing an existing PTAC it is recommended that you replace it with your current BTU size. BTU sizes are primarily calculated based on the overall square footage of your room. It is always best to undersize rather than oversize to get the best efficiency. The following will give you a rough estimate of the BTU size suggested.
Less Than 250 Square Feet: 7000 BTU
250-400 Square Feet: 9000 BTU
400-600 Square Feet: 12000 BTU
600+ Square Feet: 15000 BTU
2) What PowerCord Type Should I Choose?
All 7000,9000,12000 BTU models include a 230/208V 20amp power cord and the 15000 BTU model includes a 230/208V 30amp (LARGE SIZE) power cord. Please confirm the plug type when you place the order. This is important because we need to be certain your PTAC unit will have the proper cord so that it fits your existing outlet. We have included a diagram below to show you what the plug outlet looks like. Please note there is an additional cost for a non standard cordset. (A 265 Voltage model is also available on special request)
Please select the receptacle plug type as follows:
3) What is the difference between a standard Heat/Cool model and a Heat Pump?
Our standard "PDE" models offer cooling with electric heat strip. These models are often used in colder climates where the average outside temperature is well below freezing. The premium "PDH" models offer cooling with a Heat Pump. Heat Pumps are often used in warmer climates where the average outside temperature is above freezing. Heat Pumps are very energy efficient because it transfers heat from the outside into the room instead of using the electric heat however all PDH Heat Pump models also include backup emergency electric heat which will kick in when the outside temperature dips below freezing and can no longer be supported by the Heat Pump.
4) Will the Friedrich PTAC fit my existing wall sleeve?
As long as your existing wall sleeve is 42" wide by 16" high which is the universal standard size for all PTACs including GE, Carrier, Amana, Trane, LG, Sanyo it will fit your existing wall sleeve without the need of changing the wall sleeve or exterior grille. Please note although the overall dimensions are the same extra insulation may be needed to be installed around the perimeter in some cases.

Friedrich offers a two (2) year manufacturer warranty parts and labor included. A five (5) year manufacturer warranty is also included on the compressor and sealed refrigeration. You have an option of extending the manufactuer warranty at time of purchase. The extended warranty is only available to residential homeowners. Commercial and rental apartments do not qualify.
