It’s time again for the annual Commercial Cooling Showcase. For those who are unfamiliar with The NEWS’ annual issue, it 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 to distinguish between brands.

Like last year, this year’s Cooling Showcase is split into two parts - commercial and residential. In this issue, we focus on the commercial side of the air conditioning industry, while our April 12, 2010 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 manufacturers provided all of the data included in the commercial product grid (see PDF link below), as well as in this photo feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided in this photo feature article.
