From components and construction to testing and performance, there s simply no other room air conditioner like Kuhl. We challenged our engineering team to abandon conventional thinking and create the ultimate, commercial-grade room air conditioner. It had to be durable and high-performing, yet quiet. The design had to be cutting edge. And we insisted on unique features that would take comfort, indoor air quality and energy management to unprecedented levels. Available at AppliancesConnection
After more than two years of R&D and rigorous testing , we unveiled Kuhl. The line has 12 ENERGY STAR®-qualified models with cooling-only models and models with heat (heat pump or electric heat) in a full range of capacities. Our Sizing Guide and Specifications by Model will help you select the appropriate cooling and/or heating capacity.
Everything about these category-leading units is designed for maximum quality, ease and control. From the 20-gauge steel cabinet and fully enclosed fan motors to the 7-day programmability and LCD lockout, Kuhl is the ultimate in room air conditioning.
Call a distributor and put Kuhl to work in your commercial space. Our North American factory is only hours from our distribution center not overseas for fast delivery.
Rugged, easy-to-use controls let you customize or keep it simple
Kuhl has four operating modes that put full control in your hands, from manual to energy-saving 7-day programmable settings.
Manual: Use the unit controls or remote to turn the unit on and off and to adjust the temperature.
7-day Default Program: Pre-set to ENERGY STAR® recommendations. Optimizes energy saving at night when the building is unoccupied.
7-day Custom Program: Set up to four comfort settings per day and a shut-off option when the building is unoccupied.
Wired to a wall thermostat: For hard-to-reach installations or spaces with hot spots. The wall thermostat operates the unit and overrides the unit control panel.
For additional energy management and cost control, the LCD lockout feature prohibits occupants from changing your desired temperature setting.
To ensure long-term ease of use and durability, we put the electronic controls through rigorous testing.
From programmability to the refrigeration system, Kuhl is designed to reduce energy consumption.
