Carrier Launches Energy Experts

April 2, 2012
LAS VEGAS — Carrier Corp. recently introduced its Energy Experts program. The nationwide program is designed for Carrier factory authorized dealers and focuses on improving home performance and reducing consumer energy costs.

“Our goal with the Energy Experts program is twofold,” said Karie Johnson, manager of dealer development. “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. Second, we want to provide Carrier Energy Experts with tools and information to help consumers be more comfortable in their homes, reduce home energy consumption, and save money on their utility bills.”

Richard Dean, owner of Environmental Systems Associates, Columbia, Md., pledged support for the Energy Experts program at a recent training and feedback session.

“Expanding your business to include home performance is one way that HVAC contractors can stay ahead of the curve and offer more comprehensive solutions for customers,” said Dean. “When our company offered just heating and cooling products, we were installing the best equipment, but, at times, could not achieve maximum comfort or efficiency results because other issues, like ductwork problems or air leakage, existed within the home. Now, we are able to analyze overall home performance, identify problem areas, and provide consumers with a whole-home solution.”

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

“According to the Department of Energy’s Buildings Energy Data Book, heating and cooling accounts for about 54 percent of a typical home’s energy usage,” said Matt Nuijens, Carrier brand manager. “Carrier factory authorized dealers are already HVAC experts, so the Energy Experts program is a natural next step.”

The Energy Experts program includes the Carrier 360° whole-home energy audit, which is a six-step assessment of the home including inspection, testing, analysis, recommendations, resolution, and results on the HVAC system, air filtration/distribution, and home envelope. 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.
