|What are fan coil units?
Fan coil units deliver heating, cooling or sometimes both. They can be mounted in cabinets, ceiling plenums, or elsewhere. A fan coil unit is generally a fan, plus one or two coils. A fan coil unit can have separate coils for heating and cooling or just one water coil for both. The coils operate using electricity, hot water, steam, or chilled water. Some fan coil units use a refrigerant.
Fan coil units are used for heating and cooling in apartments, condos, commercial buildings and hospitals. They provide excellent energy efficiency and warmer heating temperatures than are possible with standard heat pump systems. They also provide better dehumidification. ARSCO makes new and replacement covers for fan coil units made by every manufacturer.
