Trans

It’s time again for the 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. This article focuses on the commercial side of the air conditioning industry, while the April 14 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.

The editorial feature below provides more in-depth information on each individual unit and also includes technical support information from the manufacturer. The manufacturers provided all of the data included in the product grid as well as in the editorial feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided in the section below.
