St. LOUIS - From now until Oct. 31, 2008, contractors can enter to win the “latest and greenest” refrigerant gadget. Through its ecoLogic green program, Nordyne is giving away a brand new Yellow Jacket solar-powered digital LCD manifold.

Not even on the market yet, the new refrigerant gauge is powered by sun or artificial light instead of batteries. The Yellow Jacket Titan 4-valve manifold works with eight refrigerants, including R-410A. No battery to replace also means no hazardous waste, no battery replacement cost, and no losing power during the middle of a call, said the company.

“Nordyne is committed to energy-conserving technology,” said Dave LaGrand, president of Nordyne. “First, we developed our 23 SEER iQ Drive air conditioner. Then we launched our ecoLogic family of high-efficiency products. And now, we’re partnering with Yellow Jacket to promote green tools.”
