Carrier is participating in the National Apartment Association’s Maintenance Mania competition with the addition of the Carrier challenge, which pits residential HVAC technicians against each other to complete tasks related to airflow in air conditioners.

“After witnessing firsthand the tremendous excitement and spirit of competition at Maintenance Mania, we knew Carrier was a natural fit to participate in this program,” said Casey Yates, manager of strategic programs at Carrier Residential. “(Presenting sponsor) HD Supply and the NAA have created a wonderful community of competitors whose passion for world-class customer service matches the passion Carrier employees and contractors have for home comfort. We look forward to adding our event to this competition and showcasing our equipment alongside these talented maintenance professionals.”

All local NAA affiliates have the opportunity to have their HVAC maintenance technicians compete individually to win local awards and a chance to compete at the national championships during the annual NAA educational conference. At the end of the competition year, NAA will select the top participant from each of the NAA regions as well as 10 wild-card participants to compete at the national level.

“Everyone enjoys competition and home comfort, so we’re excited to be bringing the two together with the help of HD Supply and the NAA,” Yates said. “We anticipate a lively year of maintenance competition and helping maintenance professionals gain a better understanding of our equipment.”
