World's Best Hydronic Air Handler:

Our top choice for a hydronic air handler is from Lennox.

The CBWMV model air handlers are available in five sizes to match the requirements of any home. They are multi-position, have built-in freeze protection, a variable speed fan motor, and use state of the art electronic control.

They are backed by a very good warranty but are only available through their factory authorized dealer network.
