Carrier Air Conditioners

Carrier is the perfect starting point when learning about major air conditioner brands, as founder Willis Carrier is the reason the industry exists! In 1902, Carrier created the first system that controlled humidity in the air, laying a foundation for the modern cooling systems that homes use today.

What Is a Certified Contractor Program?

There are a number of heating and cooling companies that sell each air conditioner brand, but a select group maintains a designation of certified by the brand. This certification is known by different names from one air conditioner brand to the next, but the goals are common – these contractors have undergone advanced training and uphold strict standards to represent the air conditioner brand, whether they are called factory authorized dealers, certified contractors, comfort specialists, or another similar title.

To hold this title from an air conditioner brand, a cooling contractor typically undergoes detailed training directly through the air conditioner brand. This training provides advanced information regarding all aspects of the air conditioner brand’s cooling systems.

What can a certified contractor do for you?

  • A certified contractor’s detailed knowledge of each system they sell allows them to best explain each system to you, and match you with equipment that is right for your home, efficiency goals, and budget. They are trained in this area and have the ability to help you better understand how each system and its features go to work for you.

  • With their advanced technical training, certified contractors know how to install and service an air conditioner brand’s systems with precision. When you choose an air conditioner brand through a certified contractor, you gain more peace of mind that installation is accurate.

  • Certified contractors also use genuine parts manufactured by the air conditioner brand to make repairs to the system down the road. This is critical to uphold the system’s warranty, which risks becoming void if parts from other manufacturers are used. Genuine parts from the original air conditioner brand are designed specifically for your system to restore its original efficiency and cooling performance.

The HVAC industry has changed a great deal since its beginnings, and these advancements continue every day. This means contractors need ongoing training to stay current with new systems and features. A certified contractor has continuing education requirements to ensure they are up to date with new technology offered by the air conditioner brand.
