Why the Brand Matters

Have you ever compared two air conditioner models and been confused why one with seemingly identical parts and a similar feel, might cost more? Then you notice the “Carrier” brand name on the product, and it all starts to make sense. Brand labels represent more than the average air conditioner system.

We do this subconsciously with cars all the time. A Ford or GMC truck is going to conjure up a different picture in our minds than a Toyota. Our expectations change and technology behind each product shifts from brand to brand, which is why it’s so vital that you really understand why our partnerships with brands like Carrier and York really matter.

Today, we’re going to talk about how brand names relate to air conditioning in Gastonia, NC. We’ll discuss the two major partnerships we have, Carrier and York, and talk about why they might be worth more than a generic AC or heating system.

Brand Names Come With Good Deals

Brand names usually come with great deals that can be worth every penny. For instance, some brand name systems come with a manufacturer’s warranty, which means that as long as you follow the rules on the fine print and don’t try to fix problems on your own, the system is covered for professional repairs. This is basically backed by the manufacturer because it shows that they’re confident in their technology for a given lifespan. And, it means you get to save money in the long run.

Other brands might have special promotions that they work out with their dealers or partners, which is us! Check-in to see if there are great ways to save on a new, high-tech Carrier AC unit this summer.

More Reliable Components and Technology

Brand-name air conditioning units just have more reliable components and technology that stands the test of time. Companies like Carrier and Trane have been in this industry since almost the beginning, meaning they’ve grown to a sustainable point where they can manufacture powerful air conditioners that all work with a high standard.

Decades of Testing and Innovation

Do you know what the phrase “R&D” stands for? It means Research and Development, and you can bet that your prospective HVAC company like Trane or Carrier is going to have a whole department dedicated to testing their products and innovating them.

This is ultimately what puts their systems above the rest. They’re powerful due to the years of meticulous scientific research put into them, which makes the product worth the price.

Ask Your HVAC Specialist

Are you interested to know why our technicians have chosen a specific brand for your air conditioner installation or heat pump? Then ask away!

Usually, technicians are the best to answer these kinds of questions, because they work with these systems every day. They’ll be able to tell you how much longer a Carrier AC might last when compared with a generic air conditioner, or how powerful a Trane furnace might be. Use this as an opportunity to build trust with your HVAC technician to learn from them so they can be a resource for you and your family.
