“We are expanding some of the traditional plumbing supply locations to include HVAC equipment and parts throughout Florida in order to better serve our growing contractor base,” stated Ferguson HVAC Florida Business Development Manager Lander Claassen. “Many of our plumbing contractor customers have expanded to include HVAC and HVAC contractors are adding plumbing divisions to their businesses, making this a wise strategic move. With ductless product sales being the fastest-growing segment of the air conditioning market, we wanted to highlight our commitment to that sector by having this event.”

Durastar, Fujitsu and Westinghouse ductless products, each with their own distinct features, were on display.

Ferguson HVAC Ductless Category Sales Specialist Adam Nelson described the differences between the brands. “Durastar is a new brand offered exclusively at Ferguson, offering up to 18 SEER efficiencies with a 10 and 10 warranty at a very competitive price point. Westinghouse has partnered with Fujitsu in developing multi-position air handlers which we have in stock and Fujitsu has the most robust offering with a dealer program and up to 36-ton capacities.”

“New product developments rolling out at the end of this year are a Durastar 3-ton 1 to 1 wall mount system, and, more importantly, a Durastar system consisting of a side-discharge condenser with a traditional multi-position air handler. The unique part is you can do multi-zoning by combining a wall-mount air handler with it,” Adam added.

Ferguson North/Central Florida Area Operations Manager John Visser demonstrated Parcel Pending by Quadient locker system that’s available Ferguson North/Central Florida Area Operations Manager John Visser (c.) describing how the locker product pick-up system works at the Orlando store. “These smart lockers offer a seamless experience for our customers, from placing the order to picking up the product. Once we enter the order in our system, the customer receives a text with a one-time user barcode. The customer picks up the order at their convenience by scanning the code with their smartphone. When the locker is shut, an invoice and proof of delivery are sent out automatically.”

“I want to thank everyone that participated today,” Lander stated. “Visit https://www.fergusonhvac.com/events/ and enter your zip code to find events near you.”
