Rennaire Air Condition website(less than desirable)

Gents,
I am looking into AC companies and I have seen Griffith website, but has anyone ever been on the Rennaire website.

RennAire Porsche 911 Air Conditioning Products

I really wish some tech savy employee at Rennaire would update this website and bring it in the 21st Century. For what they do and sell, their website is a bit of a disappointment as a understatement and I hope they revamp to be user friendly, functional and not so dated.....Literally useless. I would be looking for products, specs and processes, etc...I under pricing always fluctuates, but this website is rally a dissappointment. I am not here to dis them on their product, which I heard is very good, but without info from the company, you literally running blind with the exception of input of Pelican users. Just my two cents.

I believe RennAire has closed their doors.

I called the number at the bottom of the website and left a VM for them to return my call

Gordon, I'd advise that you simply deal with Grifftiths: best products, awesome service and follow up when needed. One of the best P-car vendors out there. Best of luck, John in CT.

I'd look at the classic retrofit electric stuff, that seems really promising.

Their website has shown " NEW WEBSITE COMING SOON....NEW WEBSITE COMING SOON...EMAIL US ABOUT YOUR RENNAIRE A/C EXPERIENCE" for quite some time. Sort of looks like they're fading away on the surface. There's also Retro Air in TX as an option. Porsche Air Conditioning Upgrade & Full Kits | RetroAir, Inc.

A/c

Gordon.
Just in case this helps, griffiths is great , they offer plenty of help
anytime it is required.
When you get help right from the start to finish,that is what we want
if there is a problem when fitting items from them.
Go to my thread back in October.
Stock A/C can be great-------10-5--2017---page 1
that may help you-,-----sorry dont how to paste it here,its two large anyway.

fwiw, I have Rennaire's Full System 80's carrera for ~7 years. Still works great.
I have another 80's carrera with Griff's full system for ~4 years. Still works great too!
Rennaire and Griffiths are the unsung hero's of the 911 world IMHO!

I don't doubt either one, however for Rennaire support and tech advice-is there a go to person affiliated with Rennaire that can be responsive and maintain whatever stock of parts they have?....as someone mentioned it seems like they (Rennaire) are in hospice for whatever reason and dying a slow death...just my two cents

AFAIK, it has to be Jeff at Rennaire. I used to leave messages and he'd call back...
As said previously in other threads I think Rennaire is not a full time venture. It might take a while for them to get back to you.

Part of the problem may be the demand for such specialized equipment as more and more 911 owners hide their preciously appreciating assets in their garages....

Rennaire.

As per some of the previous post, considering the current weather,
Rennaire should answer the phone within a few rings.

Or, at least respond via email or, land line.
