Survey Finding: Most Contractors Convert to 13 Seer by Jan 2006

06/24/2005


Emerson Climate Technologies, St. Louis, announced that its second quarterly 13 SEER survey shows that while a majority of HVAC contractors (77%) plan to convert to 13 SEER by January 2006, 12% of those surveyed still plan to aggressively sell 10 SEER after the transition deadline.

The survey, the second in a series of 13 SEER market surveys that Emerson is conducting over the course of the year, asked HVAC contractors and distributors across the industry questions to gauge their awareness, planning and actions to prepare for the 13 SEER regulation, which goes into effect January 23, 2006. The purpose of the survey is to help provide an accurate picture of the market’s transition, which is paramount to maintaining uninterrupted product delivery and high quality levels as OEMs release their new 13 SEER models to the industry.

The survey also shows that, of those contractors taking steps to prepare for the transition, 33% are actually beginning to develop a strategic marketing plan.

Emerson plans to conduct the third survey in the series in late summer. To view the 13 SEER survey results, go to EmersonClimateContractor.com .
