Amana PTACs are some of the most popular items we sell here at Total Home Supply, and for good reason: quiet and efficient, Amana PTACs are made in the USA and have been a trusted name in the world of AC units for years. An especially popular choice among hotel owners, Amana PTACs are also common fixtures in nursing homes, offices, college dorms, and apartment buildings.

Like any indoor appliance, your PTAC unit requires routine cleaning and maintenance to ensure maximum efficiency and a long lifespan. Dirty or clogged PTAC parts not only hinder your unit’s performance but can also pose a dangerous fire and/or electric shock hazard if left unattended for too long. We receive frequent questions from customers about how to go about properly (and safely) maintaining their PTAC units, and so we’ve decided to put together a comprehensive resource guide, based on Amana’s own instructions, on how to clean and care for your Amana PTAC.


The Benefits of Owning a LG PTAC



Is it hot enough out there for you? Maybe even too hot? We’ve got good news – LG’s innovative PTAC heating/cooling units provide optimum comfort even on the most brutal summer days. LG PTAC personal comfort systems are a popular choice in hotels for how each unit works quietly, effectively, and at incredibly low energy costs. For professional-level cooling in the comfort of your own home, LG PTACs are suitable for use in assisted living facilities, apartments, and sunrooms, as well.

LG works with tens of thousands of engineers to make sure every one of their products is top-of-the-line, and these PTACs are no exception. From convenience to comfort to cost-effectiveness, here are just some of the major benefits to owning your very own LG PTAC:



High Efficiency at a Low Cost

LG PTACs are priced reasonably to begin with, as to allow everyone from the average consumer to large hotel chains the ability to afford these terrific units. The savings only continue once these units are purchased, as high efficiency ratings work to cool your room at much lower costs. LG PTACs boast an energy efficiency rating of up to 13.3 EER, which is higher than any other PTAC currently on the market. Additionally, these units feature an easy-to-read temperature display to keep track of cooling power, as well as four comfort sensors to efficiently control room temperature and further energy savings.


Cooling You Can Feel, But Don’t Have to Hear

In addition to being among the most cost effective units on the market, LG PTACs are also among the most silent when in use. These units operate at as low as 43 decibels, allowing you to leave the unit on throughout the day and overnight without any disruptive noise. This super quiet operation is due in large part to LG’s special BLDC motor, which provides precise control while reducing electrical and mechanical sound. Compare this to traditional AC motors, which are not only noisier but also less efficient, and it is not hard to see why LG’s pristine engineering is the envy of the competition.


Easy Maintenance

In addition to being highly efficient, cost effective, and unbelievably quiet, LG PTACs are easy to maintain and built to last. Every unit comes standard with the Gold Finplating anti-corrosion on the condenser coils, which helps protect against corrosion and damage to the interior of the unit that can impede airflow and reduce efficiency. A washable filter is accessible from the front of the unit, while a high-quality mesh filter is easily removable and can be found behind the specially designed ventilation door.
