Carrier leads the residential climate control industry in familiarity and usage by builders

Carrier is once again proud to announce it is the favored heating and cooling brand among the homebuilding community, according to the 2017 BUILDER Magazine's Brand Use Study. In the survey, readers of BUILDER magazine ranked Carrier the top brand in three of the four of its heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) subcategories, including Brand Familiarity, Brand Used Most and Brand Used in the Past Two Years. This year’s results mark the fifth consecutive year Carrier was named the most used HVAC equipment supplier in the survey. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). “Carrier is committed to working with builders across the country to meet their specifications for humidity control, code compliance and reducing Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index scores for any new construction project. We value our strong relationships with builders and we will continue to stay focused on delighting these vital customers,” said Casey Yates, manager, Strategic Accounts, Carrier Residential. “We strive every day to deliver the most innovative and reliable heating and cooling solutions in the industry, so it’s an honor to see our brand recognized by this independent research.

Builders listed product performance, warranty and product availability as the three most crucial categories when selecting an HVAC provider, according to the survey. Builders also cited strength of relationship with manufacturer, ease of installation and sustainable features as important categories.

The brand use findings are based on a survey sponsored by Hanley Wood on behalf of their publication, BUILDER. The online survey was conducted by The Farnsworth Group and included Hanley Wood subscribers classified as builders, builders-developers or general contractors. The data was collected from November 2016 through January 2017 and is based on 936 qualified responses.
