It’s been one month since Hurricane Sandy roared across the northeastern edge of the United States wreaking havoc and, of concern to the HVACR industry, knocking countless air conditioning and refrigeration systems out of operation.
Emerson Climate Technologies recently released its position on flood damaged Copeland™ brand products to our wholesalers and contractors in order to aid them in the clean-up and rebuilding process. We’re recommending any flood-affected products be replaced as they could be a safety hazard or cause system reliability issues. While not under the best of circumstances, this does give the contractor the opportunity to upgrade older equipment to energy efficient systems that lower energy costs.
We at Emerson are looking to our wholesaler and contractor channels to let us know what equipment they’ll need to complete clean-up and rebuild projects over the coming weeks. As a call to action, Emerson Climate would like to receive feedback on model types, voltages, and applications to help us prepare our manufacturing plants to meet the needs of our customers. We’ll communicate this information through our channels to help support the work that is being done to get those systems up and running.
