HVAC Supply Chains and Alternative Line Sets

Updated June 14, 2023

In the HVAC industry, distributors are often faced with a myriad of challenges. From maintaining a diverse inventory to ensuring timely delivery, these challenges can significantly impact the efficiency and profitability of their operations. Among these, one of the most significant issues is dealing with supply chain disruptions.

Traditional copper line sets, while a staple in the industry, are subject to price instability and supply chain disruptions. The volatile copper market can lead to unpredictable costs, and supply chain issues can result in delivery delays. These factors can create a ripple effect, impacting not just distributors but also HVAC professionals and end-users.

Enter Alt-Line, a game-changing alternative to copper. With over 40 years of proven success in the refrigeration industry, Alt-Line offers a solution that not only bypasses these supply chain issues but also provides a host of other benefits.

Learn how Alt-Line is helping HVAC distributors overcome supply chain issues and why it’s a crucial consideration for the future of your business.

Alt-Line: A Solution to HVAC Supply Chain Issues

Alt-Line is revolutionizing the HVAC industry with its coated low-carbon steel tubing. Unlike traditional copper lines, Alt-Line utilizes a stable North American supply chain. This means HVAC professionals can rely on predictable costs and reliable delivery, making supply chain issues a thing of the past.

But what does this mean for HVAC distributors? It means no more scrambling to find alternative suppliers during a copper shortage.

No more passing on increased costs to customers due to price fluctuations. And no more delayed projects due to late deliveries.

With Alt-Line, HVAC distributors can operate with confidence, knowing they have a reliable and stable supply of high-quality tubing.

The Benefits of Alt-Line for HVAC Distributors

Superior Resistance and Durability
One of the standout features of Alt-Line’s tubing is its exceptional resistance to environmental and weather-related corrosion. In high humidity or coastal areas, where salt air can wear down traditional copper lines, Alt-Line’s tubing stands resilient. This extends the lifespan of HVAC systems, reducing both maintenance and replacement costs. For distributors, this means fewer warranty claims and happier customers.

With Alt-Line, the frustrations of unpredictable copper price fluctuations are eliminated. The stable supply chain ensures cost-effectiveness, making it a reliable alternative to traditional copper lines. For distributors, this means more predictable pricing, which can help with budgeting and pricing strategies.

Efficient Installation
The innovative press or compression fittings system from Alt-Line eliminates the need for brazing training and fire permits. This results in significant time and cost savings, allowing HVAC professionals to complete installations more efficiently and safely. For distributors, this means less time spent on training and more time spent on serving customers.

Robust and Reliable
Alt-Line’s coated low-carbon steel tubing possesses similar mechanical characteristics to traditional copper lines but with significantly increased burst pressures and superior vibration and temperature tolerance. This makes Alt-Line’s tubing a robust and reliable choice for HVAC installations, ensuring that the systems installed are durable and perform optimally under varying conditions.

Alt-Line: The Future of HVAC
