Advanced, Efficient and Reliable Hydronic Heating and Cooling With Arctic Air Handling Units
Hydronic Air Handlers have been around for years as a means to transfer energy from hydronic boilers and A/C units throughout the house by way of centralized duct work. However, in the past most air handlers were designed for high temperature water sources ranging from 140-180 °F. This mean that the heat exchangers could be relatively under sized and still do the job. With modern high efficient energy sources gaining in popularity, these old air handlers simply cannot do the job! Arctic Air Handlers are the new bread in efficiency and technology.
Modern Air Handling Units such as Arctic Air Handlers, are equipped with heating and cooling hydronic coils designed to operate at lower hot water temperatures (104 to 120 °F) in Winter and relatively higher chilled water temperatures in Summer (42 to 48 °F).
When combined with air to water heat pumps (Such as Arctic EVI Heat Pumps), the combining provides a high energy efficiency available with relatively modest cost. Compared to Geothermal technology, Arctic Heat Pump and Air Handler Combination has an annual COP (coefficient of performance) a bit lower than the Geothermal but with much lower Installation Cost.
With features such as Variable Frequency Drive VFD and 6 row heat exchangers, Arctic Hydronic Air Handlers are the most efficient air handlers on the market for delivering lower temperature heating sources such as hydronic heat pumps, geothermal and condensing boiler, all of which are more efficient at lower temperatures.
