The industry shift towards renewable
heating and air conditioning equipment brings concern of increased
environmental risk, higher replacement, and maintenance costs.
Future energy efficient requirements will affect residential and
commercial air conditioners and heat pumps.
Weaver shared concerns surrounding the
