ST. LOUIS — White-Rodgers, a business unit of Emerson and part of the Emerson Climate Technologies business segment, has introduced four new direct replacement controls for Carrier, Trane, and York single-stage furnaces. The company said the controls are part of a growing line of direct replacement options to complement the universal replacement products that White-Rodgers offers contractors.

“Our goal is to make it easy for contractors to serve their customers,” said Geoff Godwin, vice president of marketing, White-Rodgers. “Direct replacement options are quick and cost-effective, while universal products allow contractors to service a wide variety of furnaces and often get customers’ furnaces repaired without carrying a lot of inventory on their trucks.”

To help contractors navigate White-Rodgers’ replacement heating controls, valves, and ignitors, the company has added an OEM Model Search to the WRMobile App. Contractors simply enter the OEM furnace control model number, and the app gives suggested direct replacement models as well as any universal options available. WRMobile can be downloaded for free at

White-Rodgers also offers a newly updated Visor Card (form WR-0889-14) quick-reference guide providing a complete list of White-Rodgers products and specifications as well as a cross-reference selection guide. The Visor Card, which can be stored in a toolbox or under a vehicle’s sun visor, is available through the company’s sales or customer service representatives.
