A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11874001B1) discloses a temperature control system designed to be installed within an installation region with a ceiling. The system includes at least one fan coil unit (FCU) and at least one condenser unit (CU) suspended downward from the ceiling, with the CU having a height smaller than 9 inches and a maximum cooling capacity of 3 tons or less. The FCU and CU are connected with a connector, ensuring the entire system remains within the installation region, with the lower boundary of the system located less than 10 inches from the ceiling.

Furthermore, the patent describes a variation of the system with multiple FCUs connected to a single CU, each FCU operating independently to control temperature within multiple temperature zones. The CU, with a height less than 9 inches, is positioned near the bottom or ceiling of the installation region, ensuring efficient temperature control. The system's compact design, with a footprint of less than 6 square feet, allows for easy installation in spaces like closets. Overall, the patent highlights a unique temperature control system that maximizes space utilization while providing effective cooling within different temperature zones independently.
