RETROFIT VERTICAL FAN COIL UNIT
Vertical fan coil unit HVAC systems provide high-rise residents with excellent and efficient heating, cooling and ventilation. Individual fan coil units are built into the original building construction in a small, enclosed footprint, so they’ve been difficult, disruptive and expensive to replace – until now.
About the retrofit fan coil unit
Our retrofit solution is designed with ease of installation in mind. The unit slides into the existing cabinet and eliminates damaging drywall and the surrounding area in a suite. Reducing construction time also reduces installation time – the entire process is completed in a day.
Using the same coils and equipment found in our newest fan coil unit models, we created a compact package that completely replaces the filthy, outdated parts found in a fan coil unit manufactured 25+ years ago. Replacing the whole system not only improves efficiency but provides better indoor air quality by eliminating the dust and dirt that have built up over time.
- High-efficiency ECM motors significantly reduce electrical consumption
- Up-to-date electronics, efficient coils and air-flow systems greatly enhance heating and cooling capacity
- Compact modular design fits through the door opening and inside the current footprint
- Flew hoses simply connect to existing water sources inside the current cavity.
- No need to repair drywall, paint, etc.
- Installation only takes a few hours by a qualified technician
- More efficient HVAC operation with much greater heating and cooling capacity
- No need to replace existing access panel or thermostat
- Many years of trouble-free performance

A simple, cost-effective solution for replacing vertical fan coils.
84% More Efficient: ECM vs. PSC Motors
Motors drive the fan, which provides all of the ventilation in a residential suite. Due to the regular use of the fan, it contributes a lot to vertical fan coil energy consumption. Updating motors can drastically improve fan coil energy efficiency.
Constructing a Retrofit Fan Coil Solution
Our retrofit vertical fan coil solutions are designed and manufactured using the same high-quality materials and expertise as our original construction solutions. We apply the same quality standards and testing to ensure a long-lasting unit that will provide home comfort for many years.
