    Last I had known the Bristol TS was only available in R22. And its not a 2 speed compressor.
    It changes rotation for the stages.

    I knew the Copeland Scroll was R410A. Its not a 2 speed compressor either. It uses an unloader.

    Its not the refrigerant that will be obsolete. Its the equipment.

    So you stopped selling the version 2.5 VS blowers as soon as you heard the version 3 blowers were coming out.

    That really is a matter of semantics they both have to levels of capacity therefore they deliver 2-stages of cooling. Yes I know how they work but it is much simpler and succinct to discuss them as 2-stage.

    Its not semantics, I hate hearing them called 2 speed.
    They are 2 stage, but the comp doesn't run at 2 different speeds..
    Thats all I said.

    Dash response

    Dash you are correct. The Bristol 2 speed is Puron/410A ONLY. The only R22 equipment that Carrier/Bryant offer today is 13 and 14 SEER equipment on a very limited basis. You will see this dramatically change in the coming months. You can now purchase a 3 ton and under split HP system cheaper in Puron than R22.

    You better be selling Puron/410A, because if your not you better be glad your not in my area as I advertise HEAVILY (over $70K) last year alone on what is taking place in 2010.

    York dropped their line with the Bristol TS compressor.
    When they had it, it was only available in R22.
    I wish they had kept the line. But thy didn't.

    I was unaware that it came out in R410A also.

    Post been there

    Are you installing almost 100% Puron/410A products? It looks like your not based on your comments about the Bristol compressor. As I state in my previous post, I have advertised heavily on 2010 equipment changes. I even provide the homeowner with the actual federal law that will be taking place. This provides my sales staff from having other contractors who use R22 coming behind them and telling untrue stories. The result of this is the customer appreciates my company keeping them informed....and I get the sell over 51% of the time.

    I know that you will start seeing manufacturers advertising this equipment change in the near future. I currently sell 99.9% Puron/410A products with variable speed. Most of my competition in this market is at 13 seer standard equipment.

    York went with the Coleland Scroll 2 stage, which is R410A.
    Sales were about 40% R410A for swapout, and cut ins.
    All R22 for RNC.


    I don't push either, I give the customer his options on both refrigerants.
    I PERSONALLY have no preference.

    Heatpumpguru - what is it that you like about the Lennox? As I mentioned in another thread, I am evaluating Trane XL16i, Carrier Infinity 16/19 and Lennox XP19 for my house in Central Florida.

    I would pick the CARRIER hands down,the Trane is nice also. I think install is key,ask the Carrier guy if unit needs to be powered up for awahile on the 25hna6 before you turn it on. It needs to be,if he says no or does not use a heat gun then,RUN!!
    It's NOT the BRAND,it's the company that installs it!!!!!
