Southwire EZ-In™ Mini-Split Cable Solves Ductless AC Issues

CARROLLTON, Ga., Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HVAC contractors can now get a better handle on jobs involving installation of mini-split air conditioning units with Southwire's new EZ-In cable, which makes installation of ductless AC units quicker and easier, while ensuring jobs meet code.

Mini-split AC units are growing in popularity, especially in multi-family units and in homes where new additions are being constructed. Typically contractors have had to run two different wires – one approved for outdoor use and one for indoor use – through a junction box and use conduit or a cable tray to power mini-split AC units. Southwire EZ-In cable is an all-purpose cable that meets code for both interior and exterior use, increasing the speed of installation and making sure the job will pass inspection.

"Southwire EZ-In Mini-Split cable makes installing ductless AC units quicker, easier and more efficient for HVAC contractors," said Donna Graham, Vice President, Marketing, OEM Division at Southwire. "Southwire talks to its customers and brings products to market like the EZ-In Mini-Split cable that address jobsite issues HVAC contractors face on a daily basis. HVAC installation crews will no longer have to run two different wires or break the line set on mini-split AC jobs."

Attendees at the recent AHR Expo in Dallas got a sneak peak of Southwire EZ-In Mini-Split cable, which is available in both solid and stranded versions. More than 30,000 contractors, engineers, facility managers and original equipment manufacturers attended the AHR Expo, where 1,800 exhibitors displayed the latest products and services for the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration market.

"Sales of mini-split AC units are growing, so HVAC contractors at AHR gave Southwire EZ-In cable a pretty enthusiastic reception," said Jeff Watts, Product Manager, OEM Division. "With this new product, crews can use a single cable for an entire job and be confident the wiring for the installation meets code. And with Southwire's network of regional service centers, HVAC contractors can count on on-time delivery and superior service."
