BC Transit installs 122 Thermo King HVAC systems

Posted on July 2, 2013

Victoria, Canada-based BC Transit installed 122 high-efficiency Thermo King heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems on its new light duty bus fleet.

Thermo King solutions had demonstrated proven performance and reliability on BC Transit's large double-decker since their installation seven years ago.

The light duty buses feature the Thermo King ShuttleAIRE SLR 65 rooftop HVAC units with ClimaAIRE controllers. The SLR is a one-piece lightweight rooftop unit that offers optimal clearance both inside and outside the vehicle. The system has a low-profile design and can be easily maintained; 90% of service and maintenance can be performed inside the vehicle.

The ClimaAIRE controller delivers precise temperature control and features an easy-to-read digital display. The display simplifies the process of assessing any system issues through on-board diagnostics, and ultimately, reduces service time through expedited troubleshooting

BC Transit purchased the new units in 2012 and 2013 and may add additional units later this year.
