PAC 4600 local air conditioner
Ideal climate atmosphere at home or at work.
Split unit with effective cooling
Whether optionally fully automatic or three-stage manual operation, individually programmable switch-on/-off times, dehumidification function, IR remote control and much more – this powerful air handling unit leaves nothing to be desired.
Due to the split construction, the internal unit of the PAC 4600 despite a very high cooling capacity comes with especially compact dimensions and thus enables manifold installation possibilities.
In addition to the variable adjustment option of the cooling air flow, the air handling unit PAC 4600 is provided with a swing function. Oscillating fan blades improve the distribution of room air, which leads to an increased efficiency of the device.
For optional wall mounting the external unit is as standard equipped with a suspension device.
Provides cooling at home, in the office or a hotel room – with a low power consumption
Using the flexible air conditioning system PAC 4600 you can ban the searing heat from the house even during hot spells with record temperatures. Owing to energy efficiency category A, the ongoing consumption costs are kept at a reasonable level. In order to reduce the energy demand the device automatically ensures that the refrigerating compressor will be switched off upon reaching the preset target temperature. The device will only resume cooling when the desired temperature value is exceeded.
Fresh breeze – with and without cooling function
In addition, the elegant all-rounder comes with an adjustable four-stage fan blower with a flow rate of up to 550 m³/h. Even with the refrigerating compressor inactivated, the device provides a fresh breeze and effective air circulation in the room. With additionally activated, optional swing function, cold air will be evenly distributed in the room. In order to also filter out fluff, dust and animal hair from the breathing air, an easy-to-clean air filter is integrated on the back of the device.
An individual feel-good climate straight to the point: Use the 24-hour timer to programme the switch-on or switch-off time of the PAC 4600 in a way that coincides with your daily rhythm. For instance, you can start into your work day with agreeable temperatures. Or use the timer to ban the heat that has built up during the day from your bedroom in time before retiring to bed for a good night's rest. The device is equipped with recessed handles and low-friction rollers permitting the quick and easy transportation into other rooms equally in need of a fresh breeze.
The optional on-demand swing function provides even cooling throughout the room. The air outlet automatically swings from the bottom to the top in order for the cold air distributing in an optimal way.
Calculation of the required cooling capacity
Find out how to easily calculate the cooling capacity required for your living and office spaces.
How much power is required to cool a room? The rule of thumb: Every cubic metre of room volume requires a cooling capacity of 30 watts (1 m3 = 30 W).
Using this blanket value the required cooling capacity can be determined quickly and easily for every room size. Example: Assuming a room with 48 m² of floor space and a room height of 2.5 m.
The resulting calculation reads as follows:
Room volume calculation:
48 m² of floor space x 2.5 m ceiling height = a room volume of 120 m³
Calculation of the cooling capacity required for the room volume:
120 m³ cubature x 30 watts of cooling capacity = required cooling capacity of 3,600 watts
Conversion from watt to kilowatt:
3,600 watts = 3.6 kW
Result: In a room with 48 m2 of floor space and a height of 2.5 m you need an air conditioner with a cooling capacity of 3.6 kW – such as the PAC 4600.
This is only a rough calculation formula for living and office spaces with modern insulation (passive house standard), though. The required cooling capacity further depends on the room's "thermal load": For selecting an appropriate air conditioner, the factors of insolation, insulation, window dimensions, the number of persons as well as the heat sources play an equally important role.

AirLock window and door seals
ACCESSORY TIP: AirLock window seals prevent warm air from streaming back into the room you are trying to cool.
The warm air is discharged through an air conditioner's exhaust air hose and thus through a window into the open air. In order to keep the warm air from streaming right back into the room through the window gap we recommend using AirLock window or door seals.
Suitable for windows with a maximum perimeter of up to 4 metres is the window seal AirLock 100. The hose can be attached to any type of window (casement, bottom-hung or skylight windows). With the Velcro® tape mounting between window and frame only takes a few steps. This ensures an optimal cooling efficiency in the room and substantially reduces the consumption costs of your air conditioner.
Also perfect for floor-to-ceiling windows or balcony and patio doors.
The convenient door and window seal AirLock 1000 was specifically designed for sealing floor-to-ceiling windows or balcony and patio doors – it is the only window seal on the market that has a perimeter of up to 5.6 metres. The AirLock 1000 can be used for both one- or two-hose devices. Further information on all available AirLock versions is provided here.

A boost of freshness: Enjoy maximum refreshment anywhere in the room!
Do you want to additionally support the effect your air conditioner has? In order to really distribute the cool air into every last corner of the room we recommend using the powerful fan TFH 2000 E with turbo spin technology. The extremely compressed turbulent air flow gushes out of the TFH 2000 E as tornado-like air column that revolves around itself and advances deep into the room. The air current breaks through warm and cold room air zones mixing it all up. The exiting air current encounters the opposite wall or the ceiling and from there is deflected to all sides.
In a constant circulation the air returns to the rear of the fan flowing along the side walls and the ceiling. It is sucked in once more to start a new cycle. This effective turbo spin method ensures maximum circulation and mixing of the room air. The temperature difference between cold air near the ground and warm air just beneath the ceiling is substantially reduced, instead the air temperature in the entire room is noticeably evened out.
