2013 Cooling Showcase: New Commercial Products

Cool Equipment for Hot Summer Weather

May 6, 2013
Trans

2013 Commercial Cooling ShowcaseIt’s time again for the annual Cooling Showcase. The NEWS’ annual issue has traditionally introduced the latest air conditioning units 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 distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Cooling Showcase is split into two parts — commercial and residential. In this issue, we will focus on the commercial side of the air conditioning industry, while our April 15 issue highlighted new offerings in the residential cooling market. Included in the coverage is feature-specific information about each individual product as submitted by the manufacturers.

For a brief snapshot of each product, including tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity, view the product grid by clicking here.

The manufacturers provided all of the data included in the product grid. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided.
