Italy-based leader in specialized climate control systems, Innova will launch HPAC 2.0—its EnergyStar-certified “Heat Pump AC – With No Outdoor Unit” to the US market at the AHR Expo 2020.


While HPAC 2.0 shares similarities to PTAC/PTHP in that it’s a packaged system, that is where the similarities end. HPAC 2.0 is a class apart in terms of comfort, efficiency, performance, quietness, ease of installation, aesthetics, warranty and more. Installed all over Europe in upscale hotels, commercial and residential buildings, these systems have an impeccable and long track record of trouble-free performance.

“HPAC 2.0 offers amazing flexibility when it comes to installation while at the same time delivering exceptional performance in cooling and heating as well as efficiency, sound, and aesthetics. Many municipality and energy companies are offering outstanding rebates for energy-efficient systems like HPAC 2.0, making it even more attractive,” said Jason Klor, General Manager, East Coast.

Requiring just two small 6-inch exterior grilles, HPAC 2.0 has a 90% lesser exterior grille area compared to the huge 42x16” grille for PTAC/PTHP. Its tightly sealed twin 6” external ducts don’t have any air leakage compared to an average of 6.7 sq. in. of leakage with PTAC/PTHP.

HPAC 2.0’s state-of-the-art Panasonic BLDC Inverter compressor runs at variable speeds while delivering the most precise cooling and heating. It means the room will always be at a uniform temperature compared to the constantly fluctuating temperature of older technology, on-off compressors. Thanks to the BLDC compressor, HPAC 2.0 is also 45% quieter at just 27 dB(A) compared to PTAC’s average of 50 dB(A).

HPAC 2.0 can be controlled in several ways, including Wi-Fi, onboard or wall-mounted touch controllers. Its sleek and refined cabinet is 6.5” deep compared to the bulky 22” deep cabinet of PTAC/PTHP. HPAC 2.0’s 70% thinner all-metal cabinet can also be painted to blend into any room’s décor, making it almost invisible, something that is impossible with a PTAC’s plastic, grille covered unit.

Unlike PTAC that requires extensive framing for a wall sleeve, HPAC 2.0 requires just 2 six-inch vent holes, which means 75% less installation labor. For cooling-only application, it doesn't even require a condensate drain as a sophisticated system sprays the condensate on the heat exchanger.

HPAC 2.0 comes standard with a 10-year limited warranty compared to the typical 5-year warranty with PTAC, giving long term value and peace of mind.
