NOvember ISC

  1. Davidson, N.C., Nov 01, 2018 - Ingersoll Rand's residential and supply business today announced a price increase from 5 to 8 percent on residential heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) products. The increase applies to Trane®, American Standard® and Ameristarequipment, and all parts and supply brands. The increase will be effective January 1, 2019, and is due to ongoing inflationary pressures.           We will have updated price pages to you in December. Preliminary review of the new pricing shows an approximate 4% increase on equipment, both Trane and Ameristar.  We will once again offer a "Beat the Price Increase" stocking order plan for Trane Furnaces.

Go online and check number of reviews, and how recent they are.
