TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - If a prominent U.S. congressman has anything to say about it, Danfoss Turbocor’s advanced compressor technology will have a much larger stake in federal, state, and commercial facilities in the United States. According to the company, that’s because the technology makes air conditioning equipment more efficient, significantly reduces energy consumption, and creates green jobs in the HVAC industry.

“The private sector will play a significant role in our national energy policy as our country begins to move toward energy independence,” said Congressman F. Allen Boyd Jr. (D-Fla.), who recently toured the Danfoss Turbocor Compressors manufacturing facility in Tallahassee, Fla. “This visit was a great opportunity to learn more about the important work being done right here in North Florida to advance the latest energy technologies. New energy-efficient technologies, like those being developed at Danfoss Turbocor, are a key component of reducing our energy consumption and energy costs.”

Ricardo Schneider, president and CEO of Danfoss Turbocor, complimented the congressman on the timing of his visit. “The economic stimulus package can have a huge impact on federal, state, and commercial facilities in the United States,” said Schneider. “Working with the administration under the stimulus program presents a unique and significant opportunity for Danfoss Turbocor to help the HVAC industry become more energy efficient and environmentally sustainable.”
