....follow the leader
Cool Components is the leader in professional cooling solutions for industrial, mission critical commercial systems, as well as systems in homes, yachts, the list goes on and on........
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 fans technologically updated and instead use ball bearing fans which are now inferior to updated bearing systems. Why don't these companies use more advanced fans, we honestly have no idea, in reality the fans aren't that much more expensive so can really just come down to a lack of knowledge and commitment to the 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 companies will even boast and provide false or incomplete information about using ball bearing or sleeve bearing fans without probably even understanding that they are not superior in any way, they are very simply old technology. In their defense, the fan companies feed them mis-information in an effort to represent their fans as being good quality but those spec'ing and installing them into products should know better. 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 our first products just to ensure we got it right. The magnetic fans we use deploy both modern technology and higher quality than other fans on the market, probably even most other fans. 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. 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 deploy a modular approach and design. This means by design we do not attempt to 'bundle' features primarily because no two systems are exactly the same which is 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. The other issue is that the fan units should last and in general 5 to 7 years run full time so obviously much longer if running on a controller that has the fans off a considerable amount of time. The simple fact is that most electronics do not last that long so that built-in controller, when it fails or is simply outdated in a few years, you throw away perfectly good fans and housing just because probably one little resistor failed. A modular design not only makes sense from a design standpoint but to also stop some of the waste flooding our landfills.
