Rooftop Units

Rooftop Units(RTU)

Package units are mostly referred to as rooftop units (RTUs) because of their placement on top of buildings. RTUs are interesting in that they can serve as heating or cooling systems and are contained within one packaged unit for convenience of space. In other words, many systems are considered “split systems” because the furnace (heating) or air handler (cooling) is split off from the condenser which is always outside. Because the RTUs have everything together, maintenance is typically easier and the cooling efficiency is higher than most split systems. Within RTUs, the cooling parts can be either straight cooling or have a reverse cycle cooling (which is a heat pump); and the heating components can be gas, electrical resistance (elements), hot water/steam, or heat pumps. Another interesting facet of RTUs is that they can be custom built to operate however which way you need them
