TIME TO ACT: Save 20% or more on HVAC. It’s important now more than ever for a sustainable future!
Optimizing PTAC units with a “smart” device is a fast, easy, and cost-effective way to achieve Residential HVAC Energy Savings. A Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner is a type of self-contained heating and air conditioning system commonly found in: Hotels, Motels, Senior Housing Facilities, Hospitals, Condominiums, Apartment Buildings, and Add-on Rooms & Sunrooms.
Business owners and homeowners face increasing challenges with energy costs to save energy and money in Utah. PTAC Energy Saver offers an Adaptive Climate Controller (ACC). It is a proven HVAC energy saving device that quickly installs on PTAC units. There are many companies that claim to produce energy savings, but the ACC device is multi-panted and proven over many years. Plus, it has extensive validation tests by organizations such as:
- ConEdison, Manhattan Plaza New York City
- Environmental Test Laboratory, Ohio
- EME Consulting Engineers (Third Party), Sponsored by NYSERDA, New York
- State University of New York, Oneonta, NY
- Tim Garrison (Third Party Testing)
- McQuay Cooling Tests
- Purdue University Tests (Phoenix)
- ConEdison Tests by ERS
Typically, when an HVAC system turns off, shortly after, the blower fan motor turns off. The ACC reprograms the blower fan not to shut off but to throttle back the rpm airflow to an exceptionally low speed, quiescent level airflow or “idle speed”. This allows for a gentle but continuous air movement into the building that helps keep equilibrium of climate conditions in the occupied space and saved energy.

Here is an example of some Residential HVAC Energy Saving info for Utah:
Since the dawn of history, humans have been burning things to stay warm.
Going forward, how about if people just grab some heat outside and bring it in? Nothing gets burned, so nothing goes up a chimney to choke the air.
That’s the idea behind heat pumps, which are emerging as a cornerstone technology to electrically heat homes without adding to bad air. Once a rarity in houses, heat pumps are gaining market share in both new construction and as a replacement for traditional furnaces and air conditioning.
“It’s about half and half now,” Roger Graham, who owns and operates Coyote Canyon HVAC in Davis County, says about customer demand for heat pumps vs. traditional choices. “And I see the heat pumps growing more. I get more and more calls every day.”
Heat pumps are essentially air conditioners that can work in reverse. In summer, they compress refrigerant to pull heat from inside and transfer it outside like regular air conditioners. In winter, they pull heat from the outside and transfer it inside — even when it’s colder outside than inside. They are an all-season solution, replacing furnaces and air conditioners.
Recent gains in efficiency have brought heat pumps to the point that they can warm an inside space while pulling heat from zero degrees Fahrenheit outside, or less. And because they are transferring heat rather than creating it, they consume less energy to warm a house.
Heat pumps have been around for years, but earlier models weren’t strong enough for cold climates. Technology has advanced, and now the best argument for heat pumps may be Scandinavia. Despite bitter cold winters, about 60% of Norwegian households are now heated with heat pumps. Sweden and Finland are at more than 40%.
Still, there are big chunks of buyers and installers who aren’t ready to give up gas.
