Scholar air conditioners are selfcontained HVAC systems designed to provide heating, cooling, and outside fresh air for school classrooms. The units are installed in the classroom against an exterior wall. The vertical configuration minimizes the floor space occupied by the HVAC unit. This unique design makes it ideal for both new schools and for renovation of existing classrooms. A full range of ventilation options – from the GreenWheel® ERV to a mechanical damper - are offered to meet any climate or budget. A wide selection of architectural louvers provides the designer with unlimited styles and configurations to compliment the exterior of the school. The unit can be controlled by a wall mounted thermostat, an internal thermostat or interfaced with a energy management system.
