Each residential suite at One Park Central is equipped with a dedicated fan coil unit that provides heating, cooling and fresh air to each suite individually. These types of systems are known as "in-suite" systems where all the air for a given suite is brought in and circulated within that suite directly.

The distance between the suite air exhaust outlets and the outside air intakes minimizes cross-contamination between the outside fresh air and exhaust air streams from the suite.
