2013 Residential Heating ShowcaseEvery year, The NEWS introduces the latest heating equipment that is available for the upcoming winter season. The intent is to help contractors prepare for this busy period by doing the research that will help them to distinguish between brands.

The Heating Showcase is split into two parts — residential and commercial. The residential/light commercial information is published in this issue, and the commercial products will be featured in the Oct. 14 issue. Coverage includes feature-specific information about each individual product as submitted by the manufacturers.

The showcase features the product grid, which includes technical facts, such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity. To view and download the product grid, click here.

More in-depth information on the features of each individual unit can be found below, and photos of the products can be found above. The manufacturers provided all of the data included in the product grid, as well as in the feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided in the photo feature section.
