Cruisair tempered water air conditioning systems (also called chilled water) consist of a chiller, located in the engine room, that cools (or heats) fresh water, then pumps it through an insulated piping loop to air handlers located in the living spaces, where the air is cooled (or heated).

Tempered water A/C systems are idea for boats over 24 meters (80 feet). Some advantages of a tempered water A/C system are:
- No limitation on the number of air handlers in a system, or on the distance from the chiller to the air handlers.
- Flexible load management.
- Often a reduced peak electrical load.
