Carrier and Clayton Home Building Group® Announce Exclusive HVAC Supplier Relationship


SmartComfort® by Carrier designated as exclusive heating and cooling solution for offsite home builder

Beginning this summer, Carrier is launching a national program with Clayton Home Building Group, one of the nation’s largest off-site and on-site home builders, to provide SmartComfort by Carrier furnaces for all off-site constructed Clayton Built® homes nationwide. The SmartComfort by Carrier brand products will be exclusive to Clayton in the off-site built housing industry and run on the same technology that is featured across Carrier’s portfolio of products. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

“We’re pleased to offer the SmartComfort by Carrier brand to Clayton homeowners,” said Mike Ackermann, senior manager, National Accounts, Carrier Residential HVAC. “The off-site built housing segment is new for Carrier and this collaboration will allow us to provide innovative and reliable equipment to meet the unique needs of customers living in manufactured and modular homes.”

Clayton Home Building Group started the testing phase of SmartComfort by Carrier in May 2019. The smart, durable design of the SmartComfort units delivers dependable performance and all-year comfort. Consumers will benefit from a dense coil guard for easy maintenance, air filtration and an insulated and sealed unit for energy efficiency and noise reduction.

“This long-term business relationship will allow Carrier to develop products and solutions to meet the needs of one of the most innovative home builders in the industry,” said David Meyers, vice president, sales and distribution, Carrier Residential HVAC.

“We are thrilled to work with Carrier to provide our homeowners with innovative, top-of-the-line, heating and cooling solutions for their Clayton Built® home,” said Keith Holdbrooks, President of Clayton Home Building Group. “The Clayton and Carrier brands share a common commitment to providing an excellent customer experience and creating high quality, innovative products that make our customers’ lives easier.”

The official roll out of the program begins this month with plans for all Clayton Built® homes to include SmartComfort products by 2020.
