we must replace our ancient chiller and need help finding another compatible system but we're running into roadblocks. First, we live in Chicago, where the only (rare) chillers are in condos and businesses, nobody knows where to find small systems, and second, they are suggesting glycol sytems and plate chillers.
We'd like to replace the 4-barrel shell and tube chiller we had with another water-only system (our system is closed, not dumped, not water-tower) and we know we'll need to upgrade condensers (to replace the trane XE1000) outside.
We're hoping hvac experts from other parts of the country know of more products - and, of course, we want pros to do the installation. Any education you can offer on this will be greatly appreciated!
