59-Year-Old Finally Retires
You may not think that retiring at 59 is a big deal, but when you are talking about a Copeland™ brand condensing unit, that’s pretty special. I recently received an email from a retired owner/contractor, Tom Hall from Owen Sound, Ontario inquiring about the age of a Copeland brand condensing unit (“Copelametic”) he has had in is home walk-in for over 41 years! He rescued it from a meat market all those years ago after a fire consumed the building. We get these type of inquiries from time to time, and it’s always enjoyable talking with our long time customers and digging into our archives to try to uncover the manufacturing date of the equipment.

To the best of our knowledge this ¼ HP Copelametic condensing unit was built in 1954 meaning it has been in operation for almost 60 years! Tom recently retired the unit due to the relay finally giving out, but the compressor was still running strong.
Is anyone in need of a Copelametic compressor replacement Part #HF25I for a 1954 condensing unit? I have Tom’s number (just kidding).
It’s great to hear the stories of longevity of our products. Tell us your best Copeland brand story! Can you beat Tom’s?
