In the world of air conditioning, the most consistently praised brand is Carrier. That’s not surprising, to those of us who know the name, Willis Carrier. The man literally invented air conditioning. Buying a Carrier AC is like buying a Ford pickup truck – you’re getting the benefit of experience to the utmost possible degree. He invented the first electrical air conditioner in 1902, and founded Carrier in 1915.

The introduction of his systems modernized American industry, allowing production in the summers to increase, and Carrier remains one of the largest HVAC companies, employing over 40,000 people. Today, they have become an industry leader and innovator, making them the first choice for many residential and commercial HVAC installations.

That reads like the first paragraph of a biography, but we just really wanted to send that message home. Carrier – the company – knows this business better than almost anyone. And because their name is synonymous with air conditioners, a Carrier AC comes with a reputation to protect.

Brands aren’t meaningless – I’m writing this on an Apple computer, while a Bose stereo plays music in the background and I’m nursing a cup of something caffeinated from Starbucks. I have these things, not because I’m a brand-conscious snob, but because I like knowing that certain names guarantee a certain quality. My laptop and phone and stereo are all several years old, and I’m not worried that they’re going to suddenly die on me. Carrier is the HVAC version of that feeling.

What makes Carrier a good choice?

I’m not a brand fanatic, and I’m not suggesting that Carrier AC or heat pump units are never going to have any issues, because that would be a disingenuous thing to say of any brand. But Carrier, in my experience, is the right mix of price per unit, strong service and fair warranties.

The company takes customer service very seriously. Not only do they maintain a close relationship with their authorized dealers and service providers, they maintain an open customer service line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.

They’re able to quickly match you with a local service provider that is trusted and certified to work with Carrier equipment here in Tampa in the event that you need any work done. Your Tampa area home deserves a company that will put that amount of manpower behind making sure the job is done right and the customer is happy.
