Chilled / Tempered Water Marine Air Conditioning A/C

Dometic (Cruisair & Marine Air) tempered water systems are built for larger yachts and commercial craft.

Dometic’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.
