....follow the leader
Cool Components is the leader in professional cooling solutions for custom residential and mission critical commercial systems.
Our products are found at NASA (both locations), the pentagon, the military including attack submarines and battleships, in the Senate chambers in DC and throughout the government. We've sold to various defense contractors and some of the best and brightest companies such as Google and Facebook. We OEM products for top name companies (cannot reveal who) and we are the most widely distributed brand of cooling products around the globe. Our products are found in homes of all sizes and budgets, yachts, and businesses around the world and with coming up on 15 years in business, our commitment to quality and our customers is as unwavering today as it was back when we introduced our first products.
Quality vs Cheap. Today the internet marketplace is flooded with various products, usually with very similar looking designs but don't be fooled, they are cheaper but are not the same in any way that matters (this is about cooling, effectiveness, functionality, service and support). Competing products are cheap in price because they are made more cheaply and do not have associations with the professional marketplace. This is a category of 'fan-based cooling products' but yet not a single 'competitor' uses the highest quality fans such as those found in our products. Cool Components was started after years of working with, selling, installing, supporting custom high end audio video systems. These were systems ranging from a few thousand dollars to more often systems over $100,000 where cooling was a necessity in a world where the term 'necessity' is rarely used. Our designs were born in the field, they were fully tested and tweaked by us in the field and then by our extensive network of awesome dealers... With most of the competing companies the birth of their products began on our website and it's not hard to see one even copied us down to mimicking our logo...
Understanding Bearing Types. Often times these companies will even boast, and provide false information, about using ball bearing or sleeve bearing fans without probably even understanding that they are not superior in any way. In their defense, the fan companies feed them mis-information in an effort to represent their fans as being good quality. This is where we tested hundreds of fans, not just took the word of fan manufacturers, when we started out, we spent years doing this before launching the line just to ensure we got it right. The 'levitation' fans we use are the highest quality fans manufactured, the technology are patented and are made to be installed vertically or horizontally, unlike every other fan/bearing type. Other fans may indicate a long life but that does not mean they will continue to operate quietly and efficiently, only that they will keep spinning, hopefully. Ultimately the difference is a unit costing more, even significantly more in some cases, but our fundamental and unwavering commitment to quality is also how and why we have tens of thousands of products that have been out in the marketplace for well over 10 years and still going strong, and still operating quietly!
Lifetime Products. When was the last time you heard of a lifetime product? Cool Components in an effort to simply offer the best products possible also accomplished making products that you purchase for a lifetime. Yes, fans wear out, there are no magic fans but when they do, with just a little time and minimal effort our products can be made to function like new again and at minimal cost. The design is conducive to easily servicing the products and while you will purchase new AV components and reconfigure your system several times over the years, your Cool Components cooling system will continue to serve your needs with minimal upkeep or improvement.
Custom vs Retail. One fundamental difference with our products and our competitors is that our products are intended to be purchased ala carte. This means we do not build attempt to 'bundle' features primarily because no two systems are exactly the same, something 'professionals' understand and thus, one product does not 'fit all'. Being able to design and customize a cooling solution is critical to not only the effectiveness but also the budget. For example, in many cases you may not need or want any control, just a constantly running fan or just need it switched on and off with the components. In other cases may just require basic on and off control or move toward more advanced controls featuring varying speed based on temperature, alarm features, contact closures... Then of course when you want the ultimate control, our Advanced System Controller is truly the most advanced controller available.

When several audio video components are installed in close proximity of one another, especially inside a cabinet or enclosure, overheating can cause the system to shut down or worse, fail all together. Heat can also slowly damage the components shortening the life of the equipment - in some cases, very significantly decreasing the life of the equipment. Our products help vent and circulate air, thus protecting individual components and entire systems.
