A decentralised cooling and heating system is created by our fan cooler and heater unit. These heating and cooling units are very flexible and work well with reversible ground source heat pumps, air source heat pimps, chillers, and condensing gas boilers, among other heat sources.
They are a two-in-one device that provides heating in winter and cooling in summer by air heating and cooling.
Cooling and heating units
The air streaming through the heat exchanger is either cooled or warmed up depending on the operating mode . Our fan heaters and cooling units are used to heat and cool large rooms or buildings, such as commercial, industrial, public, manufacturing plants, or other commercial applications or buildings.
Commercial heating and cooling
These combined heating and cooling devices are intended for use inside, in environments where the highest possible levels of air dustiness do not exceed 0.3 g/m3.
The heating medium’s low temperature is the defining feature of this all-purpose energy efficient combined cooling and heating unit, which is designed to work with a variety of thermal sources, including condensing gas boilers, chillers, reversible heat pumps, and geothermal systems, among others.
Copper, aluminium, and galvanised steel are the primary materials utilised in the construction of these combined heater-cooler units. It is prohibited to install units in commercial applications or environments that are corrosive. The unit cannot be used in an atmosphere that contains oil mist in any capacity.
A special hydrophilic layer, with thin lamella spacing, and a 4-row heat exchanger in the Cool XL4 or a 3-row water heat exchanger in the Cool L3 provide a large heating and cooling capacity.
There is one heat exchanger , that can either be fed by hot water or chilled water, this is achieved by changing the fluid entering it, whether it it be warm water or chilled water. This is controlled via control valves on the feed to the unit.

Fan on our commercial heating and air conditioning device
Three-speed fans are included with our heater cooler units. It is the most straightforward and efficient method of managing the fan heater and cooler performance and outputs
Heating HVAC system
The warm air side of these units can be fed with a maximum heating medium temperature of 70 °C to the heater, so this makes it ideal for being fed by low temperature systems such as heat pumps or condensing boilers on a low temperature system of 70/50C or lower. These lower hot water temperatures unsure a high energy efficiency ratio for the heating side or heater element of this central heating and cooling HVAC system.
Normally supplied with a chilled water temperature of 7C flow and 12C return when the unit is operating in the cooling mode, which tends to be the standard system temperatures for a chilled water system. However, if you have different temperatures, then we have software that can calculate the output data at these different temperatures.
The use of a droplet eliminator that is fitted with outlet blades helps to ensure that no droplets of condensate are carried away by the supply air stream. The water that is collected in the condensate drain pan is drained thanks to gravity. It is required that a drainpipe be connected to the drain pan to remove this away from the unit.
Installation applications for these air conditioning and heating appliances
They are used to cool or heat warehouses, logistical hubs, factory facilities, food industry, sports arenas, and other big and mid-sized buildings.
