Low Temperature Air Distribution

Posted by Price Industries on August 13, 2019 at 8:59 AM

Low temperature overhead air distribution (also called cold air distribution) supplies cooling air to the occupied space with an entering air temperature typically between 40°F and 50°F [4.4 and 10°C]. This contrasts to the “typical or conventional” overhead air distribution cooling supply air temperature between 50°F and 59°F [10 and 15°C].
