Every yearThe NEWSintroduces 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.

Like last year, this year’s Heating Showcase is split into two parts — commercial and residential. The commercial information is published in this issue, and the residential/light commercial products will be featured in the Sept. 12 issue. Included in the coverage is 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. The accompanying Heating Showcase photo feature provides more in-depth information on the features of 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 photo feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided in the photo feature section.

See the feature article “Heating Showcase: 2011 New Commercial Products” in this issue for the photo feature and a PDF of the product grid. Keep these handy as you prepare for the busy winter season.
