FRIEDRICH-VEA18K
A vertical cooling system may be the best alternative for your property. It take up a small footprint of floor space - only about 2 sq. ft. - inside of a mechanical closet. Your guests never even see it. With your cooling system hidden out of site, your guest rooms will have a homier feel to them and furniture placement may be less of an issue. Because the VERT-I-PAK installs in a closet, units are quieter than other in-room air conditioning options. And quieter operating sound levels may be achieved by insulating the closet. Additionally, to help further eliminate vibration noise, the unit slides into the wall plenum and is sealed with a gasket. The unit also includes extra thick grommets, mounted on the base. A single Vert-I-Pak Vertical Packaged Air System can be installed to cool a secondary room as well.
 
The VEA18K features 16500 BTUs and will cool a nice sized area of about 800 sq. ft. and your choice of electric heater size includes 3 options:
  • 2.5 Kw Electric Heat: VEA18K25RTL

  • 5.0 Kw Electric Heat: VEA18K50RTL
