US HVAC/R Manufacturers and Brands
There are about six HVAC equipment manufacturers in the U.S. today, but they operate under more than 150 brand names. Here are some brands that come off the same manufacturing lines — just different paint, labels, and marketing:
- Lennox, Armstrong and Concord
- Trane and American Standard
- Carrier, Payne, Bryant and Tempstar
- York, Lux and Coleman
- Goodman and Amana
Most of the components that make up these brands’ products are made by even fewer companies: Emerson, Johnson Controls and Honeywell. Also, these companies are huge billion-dollar conglomerates. They all utilize very rigid quality processes incorporating multimillion dollar machines that produce nearly mistake-proof products. They’re all pretty good at building HVAC units.
HVAC/R Installation Contractors Make the Difference
So, what’s the difference? Typically, there are small differences on the very top-end products, such as who has the bigger touch-screen thermostat, or is it 98.4 percent or 98.3 percent efficient. But, these are insignificant at the end of the day. So, what’s the big, clear-cut difference? The installing contractor. According to experts, a central air conditioner’s performance depends at least as much on how well it’s installed and maintained as on the equipment itself. Furnaces and air conditioners don’t just snap together and plug in.
