Packaged Thermal Air Conditioners

For Both Heating And Cooling Abilities

Packaged Thermal Air Conditioners are self contained machines, which are installed through the wall with a sub unit for each room, which can be controlled independently. These normally have the ability to heat as well as cool as per the requirement.


  • These do not require any kind of ductwork and hence drastically reduce the cost of installation and space required.

  • As the units can work independent of each other, they need to be operated only in the particular room where required and not the entire house.


  • Can only be installed in rooms with a wall directly outside.

  • They are less efficient as compared to central air conditioners thereby increasing the cost over a period of time by increased power bills.
