 WATSCO INTRODUCES RECOVERY SYSTEM TO CAPTURE OZONE-DEPLETING
 REFRIGERANTS; COMPANY HAS RECEIVED $4 MILLION IN ORDERS
 NEW YORK, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Watsco, Inc. (AMEX: WSOA, WSOB), the country's largest distributor of residential central air conditioning systems and a leading manufacturer of climate control and environmental protection products, announced it has received over $4,000,000 of orders to date for its refrigerant recovery system, The Flash (R). Shipments will commence this month. The Flash is manufactured at Watsco's Miami plant.
 The Flash is a light-weight, high-speed system that allows for on-site capture of ozone-depleting chemicals that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere by field technicians recharging or repairing air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers. The one-half horsepower compressor delivers enough power to recover nine pounds per minute of liquid refrigerant while separating refrigerant vapor from oil and other debris. This refrigerant can then be returned by The Flash to the repaired air conditioning unit or transferred to a central facility for reprocessing.
 Production of The Flash comes in response to a new federal law which prohibits releasing any type of refrigerant into the atmosphere. These refrigerants are believed to damage the Earth's ozone layer, contributing to global warming.
 Watsco is the largest distributor of residential central air conditioners in the U.S., and a leading manufacturer of parts and components for air conditioning, refrigerating, and heating systems that are sold worldwide. The company is introducing a series of new climate control related technologies that contribute to greater energy conservation and environmental protection.
