The article discusses the solution of Transcontinental Direct (TD) for its facility's air conditioning needs. Because of hurdles in the renovation for replacing existing chiller plant or installing a rooftop system, air conditioning distributor Ecogenia specified the use of two LL Series chillers from AAON Inc. These chillers provided the flexibility and cost effective solution because it can be located outside the facility. Furthermore, the solution allowed the control of labor cost.
