The subject property has 3 air handlers, 3 compressors and one boiler. The 3 compressors are cooling only, dated 1992 and 1993. These systems are old and could fail at any time. The three air handlers are newer (2003). Heating is provided by a central boiler that fees hot water to 3 external colis that sit on the supply line at the air handlers.
