Dettson created a revolutionary product with the Chinook Compact gas furnace. This development is a logical follow continuation to our Chinook gas furnace line up which offers inputs from 15,000 to 120,000 BTU/h for both the new construction and replacement market

Our Chinook gas furnace family offers the smallest footprint in the industry as well as other benefits which include:

  • A perfect fit to the multi-family segment: condos and apartments from 50 to 150 square meters (500 to 1500 square feet)
  • Also ideal for tight houses and energy-efficient homes
  • 10″ wide and 23″ high
  • The smallest unit for central gas heating
  • Longer operation cycles
  • Low air flow rate for thermal comfort and quieter operation
  • Can be combined to the cooling unit Alizé and thus offers the Right Sized system
  • CFM from 50 to 400, providing 15,000 BTU in heating mode and until 1 ton or 12,000 BTU in cooling.
  • Developed in collaboration with gas utilities in both Canada and the USA
  • The requirements of builders were integrated to meet the new building codes in order to offer an efficient and comfortable home to their customers as well as less call backs issues to the builder
