A fan-coil unit is a room ventilation device that contains:
a. One or more blowers;
b. A copper tube with aluminum fins that circulates hot water, chilled water or refrigerant gas for heating and chilling air that passes across the tube and fins;
c. Air dampers on the outside air intake and on the recirculation entry that controls the amounts of outdoor and indoor air that enter the unit to be heated or cooled;
d. Air filters on the outdoor air intake and on the recirculated air entry to remove insects and airborne dirt particles;
e. A blower speed control and a thermostat to control the room temperature-this can be automated or controlled manually or both;
f. A condensate catch pan to hold the water that drips off the chilled water tube and fin from the condensed humidity;
g. A sanitary drain connection to drain the condensate water to prevent the water from stagnating in the condensate pan and providing a source of microbes (mold, bacteria).

To Create Cleaner indoor air Quality
Prevents water damage and flood problems
Protects you investment and premature breakdowns
Reduces hydro consumption
Dirt, dust, fibers and other solid airborne particles collect on all the surfaces inside the fan-coil unit. Some of this dirt is organic and provide nutrients for microbes. In addition, collected dirt on surfaces causes:
The blower and housing to become dirt crusted thus reducing speed;
The dampers and mechanical connections to become dirt crusted thus preventing normal operation;
The tube and fins to become coated with dirt thus minimizing heating and cooling effectiveness;
The filters become dirt filled and need to be replaced before microbial growth occurs.
The drain pans and system will be clogeed and potential of water flow and flood.
