Trends in Custom AHUs
Making AHUs more efficient depends on reducing static pressure. Although manufacturing larger AHUs may solve the problem theoretically, that option is impractical due to space constraints of equipment rooms and square footage utilization values in commercial buildings.
Instead, using customized AHUs comprised of fans and fan arrays that feature the most advanced technology, along with optimized components and configurations, allow buildings to minimize energy and HVAC maintenance costs.
By focusing on total cost of ownership rather than on system cost, and by factoring high energy efficiency and minimal system upkeep into airside equipment maintenance budgets over the long term, building owners will realize the benefits of investing in custom AHUs rather than in standard options that may be less expensive in the short term.
According to the 2011 Efficiency Indicator Survey administered by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering and others, cutting annual energy consumption costs by $200,000-$300,000 can have the same benefit to cash flow as generating $10 million or $15 million in revenue. So, allocating resources to programs and equipment that reduce energy costs is a wise use of capital which provides a relatively quick return-on-investment.
A Leader in Custom Air Handling Solutions
ClimateCraft operates a state-of-the-art plant located in Oklahoma City. By combining leading-edge construction methods with high-quality components, ClimateCraft produces AHUs offering exceptional performance, quiet operation and lasting value.
ClimateCraft is focused on providing innovative, quiet, efficient, durable, space-appropriate solutions for the most difficult air handling challenges. Their engineering expertise generates innovative custom solutions which include AHUs that fit into spaces with limited accessibility, fan array towers that feature redundancy and minimize airflow disruptions, stand-alone towers, replacement fans, and airflow measurement and fan monitoring equipment.
ClimateCraft systems can comply with the high-velocity hurricane zone requirements of Miami-Dade County and the Florida Building Code, and meet the seismic construction and compliance requirements of the International Building Code. In fact, ClimateCraft was the first custom air handling company to receive California’s OSHPD certification.
Introducing Model IDHE
Greenheck’s line of electric duct heaters has grown with the introduction of Model IDHE, the industry’s first electric duct heater approved by UL for multiple mounting positions. This allows the control cabinet to be installed on either side of a horizontal duct or in any orientation on a vertical duct.
The control cabinet is offset from the heating element like traditional duct heaters. However, the installer can position the offset to the left or to the right during installation. This flexibility helps eliminate having to reorder a heater to accommodate emerging field conditions and reduces the information needed to properly configure the product.

The Only Duct Heater UL Listed For Multi-Position Mounting
Model IDHE is configurable in sizes up to 40 x 20 inches with a maximum capacity of 100 kW and features 50/60 Hz compatibility, power and control terminal boards, an automatic reset thermal safety switch for primary over temperature protection, and heavy gauge G60 construction. It’s ideal for space, primary, secondary, auxiliary, and reheating applications, Model IDHE is UL 1996 certified, and many options are available.
