As the industry transitions from R-22 refrigerants to the more environmentally friendly R-410A, a surprising event has occurred. Adoption is taking place faster than anticipated. In fact, the market is already 50 percent higher in R-410A than expected. With nearly 10 million Copeland Scroll R-410A compressors installed worldwide, we have the industry’s broadest line of environmentally friendly R-410A compressors.
Contractors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) prefer Copeland Scroll compressors because they are inherently more energy efficient than other technologies. In fact, Copeland Scroll compressors play a key role in helping the industry through major transitions like the 1992 move to a 10 SEER standard and the industry’s shift in 2006 to a 13 SEER minimum. As the industry prepares for another regulatory change – this time the phaseout of R-22 refrigerants in favor of the more environmentally friendly R-410A – it will benefit from the versatility and efficiency of scroll compressor technology.
Customers need more energy savings. Today, HVAC accounts for 40 to 60 percent of the energy used in commercial and residential buildings across the U.S. This represents an opportunity for energy savings using proven technologies, such as Copeland Scroll compressors. In fact, contractors have more opportunities than ever to upsell and satisfy their customers with improved comfort and energy savings.
Reduce Energy Costs
“I can save you hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs”
Now that’s a powerful talking point! And with the energy efficiency and reliability of Copeland Scroll UltraTech™ compressors, you can back it up. Research today shows that one out of every four homeowners is willing to pay a premium for high-efficiency, two-stage systems. Since its launch, the 15+ SEER market has continued to grow, even in a down market.
Reduce Energy Use
Right now, today’s residential air conditioning systems use about five percent of our country’s total electricity output at a cost of over $11 billion to homeowners. By switching homeowners to high-efficiency systems, they could help reduce this energy use by 20-60 percent.
HVAC accounts for almost 56 percent of the total energy consumed in U.S. buildings. Behind that figure, you’ll find hundreds of business and building owners, eager to control their energy costs. Copeland Scroll compressors give you the right message and the right products at the right time.
We offer the industry’s broadest line of compressors capable of 10 to 100 percent modulation, which provides more energy savings and tighter temperature control. In addition to our modulating products, Copeland Scroll compressors provide efficiencies up to 11.2 EER, while offering the most comprehensive lineup available.
Our Copeland Scroll Digital™ compressors offer:
- Precise temperature and humidity control within 0.5°F
- Reduced power consumption – typically 30% more efficient than hot-gas bypass
- Superior reliability – no oil return or electro-magnetic interference
Copeland Scroll UltraTech™
The Copeland Scroll UltraTech™ compressor is a revolutionary two-stage scroll compressor for residential air conditioning systems. Systems equipped with the Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor maintain precise temperature levels and lower relative humidity improving the comfort of the home. This technology also reduces the energy consumed by the air conditioning system by operating at two-thirds capacity most of the time, and running at full capacity only on the hottest days savings up to 60 percent on energy costs when compared with 13 SEER systems.
- Superior comfort and efficiency
- 15+ SEER optimized
- R-410A ready

Copeland Scroll Digital™
Copeland Scroll Digital™ technology is a unique and simple way to instantaneously match capacity and power consumption to the desired loads of the systems. By modulating compressor capacity between 10 and 100 percent as needed, Copeland Scroll Digital technology provides temperature control within 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit; lowers energy consumption, compared to standard fixed-capacity compressors; and dramatically reduces applied cost by eliminating the need for many redundant temperature-control components.
