North American residential HVAC sales increased 5.3 percent, while North American commercial and industrial motor sales decreased 3.6 percent. Mechanical segment sales in North America decreased 6.7 percent, primarily related to lower sales to the natural gas fracturing end market.

First-quarter sales to regions outside the U.S. were flat year-over-year.
