Burkholder’s Is Certified As A Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer

(Lehigh Valley, PA – October 18, 2013)

Burkholder’s Heating and Air Conditioning recently earned the distinction of Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer. Factory endorsement by the Carrier Corporation is gained through rigorous training, performance evaluations and achievements of strict national standards. In accordance with the rigid criteria set forth by Carrier, Burkholder’s Heating and Air Conditioning is now licensed as a trusted and capable resource for installation and maintenance of residential Carrier brand equipment.

“We’re very proud to wear the badge of factory authorized dealer,” says Bob Burkholder, president of Burkholder’s HVAC. “Carrier’s equipment is among the best in the market and our service technicians now have the full spectrum of knowledge and skills required to provide our customers with the highest quality service.”

In order to earn Carrier factory authorization, Burkholder’s employees were required to receive expert training at Carrier University. The training program affords sales and service representatives with insight into accurate HVAC issue diagnosis and efficient, effective solutions for the various needs of homeowners. Carrier also requires that authorized dealers employ NATE-certified installers and technicians, which is the case at Burkholder’s Heating and Air Conditioning.

According to Carrier, only NATE-certified technicians are guaranteed to possess current, comprehensive technical competency. The Carrier Corporation works to advance the knowledge of technicians at certified dealers even beyond NATE-certification by providing them with ongoing training on the latest technologies and products.

Carrier prides itself on an energy-efficient, reliable, quiet and environmentally-sound service line. In order to live up to its high standards, Carrier enforces specific installation and service procedures among certified dealers to ensure that the equipment performs as promised. Certified dealers are also required to use genuine Carrier Factory Authorized replacement parts whenever possible to preserve the integrity of the equipment.

According to Burkholder, the decision to become an authorized dealer was an obvious one. “Our techs are already NATE-certified and we market, install, and service Carrier equipment so it only made sense for us to pursue the authorization and secure the Carrier seal of expertise.”

Carrier parts and service provided by Burkholder’s are now formally endorsed by the Carrier Corporation’s 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. Burkholder’s customers receive confidence in knowing that their comfort is insured by not only the locally-trusted Burkholder’s, but the nationally-respected Carrier Corporation.
