Chillking realizes that many customers are on very tight budgets and may not need panels to protect from the elements. Perhaps they are locating the chiller indoors or under a protected area such as a carport or a lean-to. Our BudgetKin️gTM line of chillers have the same compressor and heat exchangers as our ETL approved lineup. The BudgetKin️g line comes in the standard chiller or a commercial version. Both are built on our standard frame however they do not have protective weather panels, the chillers are open beneath the condensers.
Standard Budget Chillers
The standard version can be used for water or water/glycol mix. If you plan to operate the chiller at low temps (28F) we offer a heavy insulation option. The standard version does not have a water pump or a reservoir. Our commercial version of this chiller has a water pump and stainless steel reservoir. Energy efficient 410a refrigerant is used in all models. We also offer a higher EER rated condenser option to save even more energy.
STANDARD BUDGET CHILLER
1 phase 220-240v
2 tons $3,967
3 tons $4,449
4 tons $4,950
5 tons $5,200
Commercial Budget Chiller
The commercial version of our BudgetKin️g chillers includes a stainless steel reservoir and 1 HP commercial water pump. The Chillking copper coil evaporator is inside the stainless steel reservoir. This evaporator and reservoir will not stop flowing coolant (water or water/glycol) because of the design. Braze Plate and tube in shell evaporators can freeze internally and block flow when this occurs. In severe freeze cases or no glycol, the brazed plate evaporators are known to rupture if the temperature gets too low or the glycol becomes diluted. The Chillking engineered evaporator in tank is designed to continue flowing even when iced over.

Optional double reservoir panel stainless steel walls sandwiching 1” rigid sheet foam insulation. SS panel bolts to inner panel, all corners are spray foam filled. Pipes are Armorcel insulation. Pump is insulated. plus $600.
Our line of Budget commercial chillers are basically our ETL certified chillers but without the panels. The stainless steel panels add greatly to the cost therefore we can offer you a quality chiller at a much lower price. Commercial chillers sizes 3 tons to 10 tons are available in single phase and 3 phase, 208-230v to 460-480v. Call for information on 3 phase 575-600v models.
These commercial chillers are highly recommended when low temperature cooling of 28F is needed because of the evaporators ability to flow even when iced over. The Chillking built copper coil evaporator is very efficient and produces more BTU than the compressor ton rating. This saves you energy by shutting down sooner. We use high quality durable PVC flex tube or rigid or even a combination. Good for extremes in temperature and low maintenance costs.
With $500 optional purchase of galvanized steel panels the chiller will ship with the ETL certification. These are flat panel that have a one inch ninety degree bend on one end, this allows the panel to “wrap the corner” giving the chiller a better safeguard against moisture.
Pump upgrades or pump purchases are available such as more horsepower or gallons per minute. Call for options. We are here to help you.
Testing of Chillers
Sometimes during testing the 5 ton 60,000 btu rated chiller has produced over 75,000 BTU at 90F ambient with 60F water/glycol being discharged. Please note: Every chiller built by Chillking is factory run and tested. They must produce higher than their listed rating to leave the factory.
