Give your property a homelike appearance with a Vert-I-Pak Vertical Packaged Air System - a simpler way to condition multiple rooms. Vert-I-Pak fits neatly into a typical mechanical closet, so you can create indoor living spaces that are more versatile. Since the system fits into a closet with an outside wall, guests and tenants will enjoy a quieter, visually appealing living space, without giving up individual, in-room temperature control or access to windows. Even quieter operating sound levels may be achieved by insulating the closet. In keeping with quieter operational sound levels, the Friedrich VTAC units slide into a wall plenum and a gasket seals it to the chassis and the extra thick rubber grommets help to reduce vibration noise.
 
The newly designed Friedrich VTACs do require a rectangular duct transition to 10" as well as a new platform which requires field sourced 2x4's for support.
 
A Simpler Way to Condition Multiple Rooms - A single unit may be ducted for flexible zone cooling in multiple rooms.
  • Installs as easily as a PTAC - All units are pre-wired, charged and piped, so only electrical hook up is needed to be up and running.
  • A Better System Inside and Out - Ideal for extended stay properties, suites, assisted living facilities and student housing.
  • Lower MCA and MOCP with concurrent compressor and resistance heat operation during defrost
The VHA18K models are 208/230 Volt and feature a large, 47" tall, chassis while still keeping the same 23" x 23" footprint as the shorter units. It includes 17,600 BTUs cooling capacity and 16,000 BTUs reverse cycle heat pump operation. In addition to meeting to new AHRI standards, Friedrich verticals are rated with the new SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 ratings as well. The new Friedrich VHA18K**RTQ series of VTACs all feature 10.6 EER2, 11.9 SEER2 and 6.3 HSPF2 ratings. Additionally, with its new base pan heater the Friedrich RTQ Series offer Ultimate Low-Ambient Operation. The Friedrich VTAC units offer heat pump operation down to 17°F at which point the back-up electric heater will kick on.
 
The Friedrich Vert-I-Pak Systems are available with your choice of electric back-up heater size. The VHA18K34RTQ includes a 3.4 Kw electric heater and requires a 20 Amp circuit. Other options of electric heat include 2.5 Kw (15 Amp circuit) (VHA18K25RTQ - Special Order), 5.0 Kw (30 Amp circuit) (VHA18K50RTQ) and 7.5 Kw (45 Amp circuit) (VHA18K75RTQ).

  • R-410A refrigerant
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Unique free-floating chassis
  • Easy to connect right, left or rear drain connection
  • Corrosion resistant interior
  • Easy to install front, left or right hand into closet on an outside wall (Does not require an HVAC technician)
