ELKHART, Ind. – Dometic announced Highland Ridge has chosen the Dometic Blizzard NXT Air Conditioner and Quiet Zone ducted return air system standard on all of their units.
Dometic's announcement says the Blizzard NXT is the most advanced designed air-conditioning product available and provides an industry leading 350 CFM. Use of EPP Foam Housing provides better insulation and maximum air flow around the evaporator coils to create better cooling performance. It is a key component of Dometic's Quiet Zone system; a residential style air system which keeps noise and vibration away from the living space for quiet, cool comfort.
"Camping is meant to be an enjoyable experience with family and friends, but how can it be if you can't have a conversation over the noise of the air conditioner?" asked Ben Johnson, Director of Product Development and National Sales Manager at Highland Ridge RV. "This is one of the top complaints we've heard from our customers. For several years we've offered Quiet Cool Air Conditioners in our higher end products. This year we thought, let's give all customers what they asked for and offer it on the entire line of products."
