Carolina Heat Pipe, Inc. differs from the competition through their commitment to service and their extensive experience. When working with CHP, you work directly with the engineer who will do the job right the first time. Throughout the process we will use our experience to recommend a solution for your specific needs, not try to sell you on the newest fad. CHP has been customizing and furnishing passive (non-energy consuming) humidity control and energy recovery equipment since 1993. Typically we customize off-the-shelf equipment for installation in commercial and industrial facilities and buildings. The resulting air conditioning system is more effective in dealing with the high humidity typical in the southern coastal areas of the United States. More recently, we have applied our technology to a new split system energy saving system for laboratories and other buildings that must avoid cross-contamination between air streams while recovering exhaust energy to reduce operating costs.
