It has U.S. manufacturing facilities in Indianapolis, Indiana for residential and commercial furnaces and air handlers, Collierville, Tennessee for residential condensing units and heat pumps, Tyler, Texas for residential package units and commercial condensing and package units, Mexico for evaporator coils, and Charlotte, North Carolina for accessories and chillers.
