The unit allows the supply of 100% outside air, operates at a near-minimum ventilation rate for classrooms, and reduces energy consumption by using cooling and heating coils. TAO also helps reduce energy consumption by taking advantage of the low-temperature, high-efficiency boilers and maximizes the economizer operation of the HVAC system. Some of the features include customizable cabinets in a variety of wood finishes and colors.
