    Hmm Amana

    I purchased an "Amana" and an "L.G."

    I compared them side by side.

    I noted that the Amana was designed to hold about 1/4 inch of condensation before dumping it out the back.

    The L.G. had the drain at the bottom so the condensation would flow out of the unit and onto the side of the building sooner.

    Also the sleeve of the Amana was designed in a way that in the event of a leak the housing would direct the water out the back.

    Also the controlls on the Amana use red and blue buttons to assist those who do not speak english.

    The Amana drain is designed to sling condensate onto the condenser coil so that the water evaporates into the atmosphere rather then draining down the wall of the building.

    You're also not comparing apples to apples. It sounds like your shopping by price. Believe me, if you have the money, go with the Fujitsu!!!

    I don't know how efficient the PTAC is because it is not rated in SEER. and the Fujitsu is not rated in EER.

    I hope that the PTAC meets 13SEER but I sort of doubt it.

    All I know about The PTAC,s efficiency is that it is 9.3 EER at 14,000 BTU.

    I also know that a lot of successfull hotels use them. This has a lot to due with my decision. I imagine that they must have dun a lot of research, and found that PTAC's are cost effective overall, and are easy to repair/change, and are quiet enough for people who do not work in the hvac industry .
