These are the newest addition to our water-cooled air handler line. They come standard with many built-in features and available upgrades. With the same up/down/horizontal flow flexibility as our larger residential style air handlers, they can be deployed for almost any application. The cabinet's are a heavy gauge embossed galvanized steel -- front and top panels are painted gray. This heavy duty exterior offers corrosion resistance and durability for a long life of reliable performance, even in the harshest commercial environment. Base units are generally in stock and ready to ship, though electric and water heat upgrades are built to customer spec, and may add to lead times. These units come with our standard, 1 year limited warranty, and industry leading support!
