Comfort Control

It's been a hot day on the water. The evening air is muggy and humid as you dock for the night. The engine room is warm from the day's running. But as you cook dinner in the galley you stay cool and dry, thanks to your Cruisair air conditioning system.

Darkness comes. The temperature drops. By midnight there's a sharp chill in the air outside. But you stay comfortably warm and snug as your Cruisair system switches automatically from cooling to heating.

Just like thousands of other boat owners over the last 40 years, you depend on Cruisair to keep your family comfortable on the water, day and night, year-in and year-out.

 

 

Self-Contained Systems

 
 

 

The self-contained system is normally considered the best choice for a smaller vessel where it is impractical to route the copper refrigerant tubes, and there is no space for an air conditioner unit in the engine compartment. These systems are typically found in boats up to about 40 feet and are available in either cooling only, or in a reverse cycle heat pump unit. In a self-contained system, all of the major components are mounted on a single chassis, which is installed inside the living area. Installation requires only locating the unit, routing water hoses to and from it, and connecting a flexible duct to the discharge grill. The noise level expected for this type of system is minimal as the unit is normally installed under a seat or bunk, and extra insulation can be added if desired.

Remote Condensing Systems

 
   

Cruisair remote systems provide the greatest flexibility for larger boats. The condensing unit, which includes the compressor and other mechanical components is mounted in the engine room. Only the compact, quiet cooling/heating unit goes in the living compartment. Cruisair offers a broad range of cooling/heating units for installation behind bulkheads, under bunks, in narrow lockers, beneath a fly bridge or any other location. Copper tubing is used to carry refrigerant between the condensing unit and the cooling/heating units. The system is charged with refrigerant by a certified mechanic at installation. With Cruisair's top of the line modulating systems, you can run several cooling/heating units with individual temperature cabin control, from a single condensing unit.

Tempered Water Systems

 
   

Cruisair tempered water systems are built for larger vessels over 50 ft. These two-stage systems use circulated water as a heat transfer medium. The cooled or warmed fluid is piped from the tempering unit in the engine room to any number of air handling units throughout the boat. The tempering unit is pre-charged with refrigerant at the factory, and no field charging is required at installation. Cruisair's unique reverse-cycle design provides very efficient heating, even in relatively cold seawater temperatures, in many cases eliminating the need for separate heating systems. Cruisair offers a complete of single-compressor and staged multi-compressor designs from 2 tons and up.
