bob,I have been using A/S since 1988 and I have only had 7 compressors fail. One of them actually worked but, the union on the low side cracked and couldn't be repaired.I hope they keep up the Q/C. I have dealer meeting coming up in March/05 I am going to ask if they are doing anything diiferant at the plant.If it ain't broke don't fix it!!

Around 2000, recip production moved south of the border. Since then we've replaced many more comps than we ever did in the previous 8 years since taking A-S on in 1992. I've lost faith in them. Of course when I asked a rep at the A-S booth at Comfortech, he said failures have gone down.
Have had good results with the scroll which is made in a joint venture plant with Copeland and Heatcraft. Some hard to pronounce city in Louisiana Fortunately we'll be seeing more scrolls as SEER goes up.
