Roof Top Package Air Con
A packaged rooftop unit, or RTU, is a type of HVAC system that contains all the components needed to provide conditioned air in one concise unit.
Packaged rooftop units are commonly found in light and large commercial applications. They are very popular with retail and industrial properties.
A packaged rooftop unit is usually a large metal box containing:
— the expansion device
— the evaporator
— the compressor
— the air-cooled condenser
Packaged rooftop units typically connect directly to a ductwork system that distributes the conditioned air through the space and returns it to the packaged rooftop unit. Its benefits include:
- No need for a split unit: With a rooftop package unit, all the components are stored in a single cabinet: the compressor, the evaporator coil, the condenser coil, and the blower fans. This not only frees up space inside your building, it also reduces problems from noise pollution, so you have a quieter workspace.
- (Almost) no space limitations: The roof is the limit when it comes to the size of your commercial AC. You can have multiple rooftop package units together to supply as much air conditioning power to your business as necessary, without using up one extra inch of valuable workspace
- Heat pump option: You can choose to have your rooftop AC installed as a heat pump.
- Humidity controls:Maintaining balances humidity is an important part of everyday life in Kenyan homes and businesses.
