Program Scope

A Room Fan-Coil Unit is a factory-made assembly, consisting of a fan or fans in parallel, that provides air circulation caused by a difference in static pressure produced by an air-moving device, cooling or cooling and heating, and filtering of air, but does not include the source of cooling or heating, with the exception of electric heat. The fan coil unit generally has a maximum design external static pressure (ESP) less than or equal to 1.0 in H2O [0.25 kPa].
