Raypak announces new Web site

Raypak’s all-new, modernized and updated website is now online.  This is more than just a face makeover.   Our key goal was to maximize its ease of use.   For example, the new site includes all documents pertinent to each product line on that same page.  Our greatest challenge was to continue to include the vast amount of product information, from our latest condensing boilers to over 60 years of copper finned tube product innovation.   Many of our boilers with well over 50 years in service are still purring along.   Owners want to keep it that way.  To insure continuity over these many years, and avoid any “TIF” information gap, our previous “Document Library” is still made accessible by link.   Q4 Beta testing with our reps and several customers has received constructive, and extremely positive, feedback.  We encourage all to check the new site. www.raypak.com Read More

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.   For January 2012, the CCI is 56. These results show that contractors are feeling about the same as they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was also 56.    The CCI is calculated based on a survey of the association's contractor members, who are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects, existing business activity, and expected staffing decisions in the short-term future. Weighted and averaged into one number, a CCI of 50 or above reflects anticipated growth.   The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the last week of ...

Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), a self-described voice of wholesale distribution within the HVACR industry, has filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit, through their attorneys, against a new DOE rule which establishes regional standards for air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces.Read more HERE.  Read More
