Alternative to copper?


Recommended Posts

I am assuming you mean the refrigerant line set. I have never seen anything but soft copper used. The lines must be smooth, clean, able to change direction smoothly and be of the specified diameter for the application and distance between condesor and evaporator. All of this information is given by the manufacturer and must be followed in order to have a system that is going to operate properly and efficiently.

What kind of material do you see?

Thanks. Its not what I see but what a customer didn't see. He had copper stolen from several units and said he was told that there was another kind of material that he could use to replace it that was not in such demand. I was not aware of anything that would work that I could tell him about but that I would look into it and let him know what I found out.
