In almost every commercial and/or industrial building, the air conditioning system is an integral part of daily operations. As a result, productivity will often fall when an air conditioning system is not operating at full capacity. When the air conditioning system needs a replacement compressor, contractors and facility owners are faced with two choices: buying a compressor from the OEM or buying remanufactured HVAC compressors.
At Compressors Unlimited Intl L.L.C. our primary business is remanufacturing and sales of Carrier, Copeland, York and Trane air conditioning and refrigeration compressors. We provide our clients with top quality, warrantied remanufactured compressors that have several advantages over OEM models. Knowing the types of things to look for in making the decision between OEM vs. remanufactured AC compressors will help in selecting the right option for your system and budget.
Cost and Warranty Factors
A remanufactured AC compressor will have a lower initial cost than a compressor from an OEM. At Compressors Unlimited, we provide a 12-month limited warranty on all the compressors we sell. This allows you to own a like-new compressor unit at a fraction of the cost, while keeping the protection of a limited warranty.
We are willing to provide a standard limited warranty on every remanufactured AC compressor we produce because we know that every component of our products have met or exceeded all OEM tolerances, even if some of the parts used have been recycled. We thoroughly test all parts, including rods, pistons, and the crankshaft to verify each one meets all tolerances. We replace any items that fail to meet the standards required for new parts. The same stringent tolerance testing is also used for the valve plates, stator, the actual compressor casting and all cylinder walls. Parts that are subject to wear such as bearings, O-rings, seals and valves are always replaced with new parts.
Before being released into inventory, all of our remanufactured AC compressors are fully run tested and leak checked under full nitrogen charge by submerging them in liquid to confirm the absence of any leaks. This allows us to guarantee that all of the remanufactured AC compressors that we produce preform at or above OEM specifications.
Since our remanufactured AC compressor models are remanufactured using some recycled parts, they are often considered to be a "greener" option than some OEM compressors. Not only do we recycle some parts and prevent them from ending up as industrial waste products, we also help extend the life of the entire system, limiting the need for increased manufacturing and use of raw materials.
After considering the options, comparing the limited warranties and checking the cost difference, we know you will see why so many contractors and facility owners choose a remanufactured A/C compressor from Compressors Unlimited Intl L.L.C.
