Friedrich—a large-scale manufacturer of heating, cooling and other air conditioning products—has launched FreshAire Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (PTAC), a state-of-the-art indoor air quality solution for multifamily communities, and a new Variable Refrigerant Packaged (VRP) dehumidification device.

Meeting ASHRAE 62.1-2013 standards, this is the first PTAC to combine an energy efficient inverter compressor with the ability to bring in conditioned make-up air. The new MERV 8 filter reduces air particles, allergens and other air impurities. Friedrich’s compressor also has different speeds which help deliver only the amount of cooling or heating needed for a certain time and space. This not only saves energy and money, but it also maintains consistent temperatures.

The company has also launched a new dehumidification option for VRP, which utilizes a hot-gas reheat circuit. The system borrows energy that is wasted in a typical air conditioning cycle and uses it to reheat the return air thus sustaining a longer dehumidification process. Easy to install and maintain, both devices are cost effective and simple to operate.
