Quest Named Winner Of Chicago Innovation Awards

IQ Series Compressor Wall

October 20, 2020 —  Quest has been named one of the winners of the 19th annual Chicago Innovation Awards. 

The winners were announced at this year’s virtual event held on Monday, October 19.  The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 19th year, is the Chicago region’s foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market each year. 

Quest’s IQ Series Compressor Wall is explicitly designed for the indoor growing environment. Its purpose-built to handle heating, cooling, dehumidification, and ventilation with precision, flexibility, and scalability.

Designed from the ground up to meet the demands of indoor grow rooms, the Compressor Wall takes a modular, scalable, and redundant approach to heating, cooling, and dehumidification. This technology by Quest boasts a centralized system, which eliminates the headaches—and hidden costs—of trying to get disparate systems to work together. It also means much lower installation and maintenance costs, with fewer points of failure and more value per dollar spent.

The Compressor Wall allows growers to dial in the exact growing conditions they desire while eliminating the need for multiple pieces of equipment.
