Carrier Launches New Program for Dealers

Carrier announced the introduction of its Energy Experts program at the ACCA Conference and Indoor Air Expo in Las Vegas. A nationwide program for Carrier Factory Authorized Dealers, the company said that Energy Experts focuses on improving home performance and reducing consumer’s energy costs.

“Our goal with the Energy Experts program is two-fold,” said Karie Johnson, manager, dealer development, Carrier. “First, we want to provide Carrier Factory Authorized Dealers with home performance training and other resources, including ‘best practices’ on conducting complete home energy assessments for consumers.

Under this program, Carrier’s Energy Experts will conduct home performance energy audits that typically analyze a variety of factors within the home, including the HVAC system, airflow, and the home envelope (roof, windows, doors, insulation, etc.), and provide solutions to improve on the overall efficiency of the home.

Carrier Energy Experts will utilize the latest technology for the energy audit, such as thermal imaging cameras, blower door testing equipment, and static pressure gauges.

“We’re committed to the Energy Experts program, ensuring Carrier Factory Authorized Dealers are leaders in whole home energy performance,” said Chris Nelson, vice president, sales and marketing, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems.
