Emerson Climate Technologies
December 5, 2007
Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson has announced results from the company’s most recent contractor and distributor survey. Surprisingly, 100% percent of those surveyed said they are aware of the 2010 phase-out of new R-22 equipment. However, only 13% reported that they are exclusively quoting R-410A, 69% reported that they currently quote both R-410A and R-22, and 11% are not even offering R-410A. One of the most dramatic points from the survey results shows that 40% admitted that they will wait until 2010 to convert their sales to R-410A equipment. The survey results also point to higher costs for R-410A systems as the primary reason. For more information on R-410A readiness, including Emerson technical white papers, contractor checklists and more, visit EmersonClimate.com/refrigerant.
