We strongly suggest a brand that we have been with for over 15 years and have proven to be a good choice. Brands such as Carrier, Bryant, or Weathermaker offer long and good operation. Carrier invented the Air Conditioner – no one has more history then them. Brand is important but the most important thing is the installation. No matter what brand is installed, if its installed incorrectly, it will not operate properly and definitely not last long.
We believe that picking a good contractor will pay off in the long run. Ensure the contractor has a good reputation, services the area you live in on regular basis, and has good reviews.
