2013 Cooling Showcase: New Residential Products

Cool Equipment for Hot Summer Weather

April 15, 2013
Trans

Every year, The NEWS introduces the latest cooling equipment available for the upcoming summer season. The intent is to help contractors prepare for this busy period by doing the research that will help them to distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Cooling Showcase is split into two parts — commercial and residential. The commercial information will be published in the May 6 issue, while this issue focuses on the residential/light commercial side of the air conditioning industry. The coverage features specific information about each individual product as submitted by the manufacturers.

Included in PDF form is the 2013 Residential Cooling Showcase product grid, which includes technical facts, such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity. The photo feature, which begins below, provides more in-depth information on the features of each individual unit and includes technical-support information from the manufacturer. The manufacturers provided all of the data in the product grid, as well as this photo feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided below.
