When you need a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system for your home, you might wonder which HVAC companies make the best equipment. Finding a brand that creates quality products can make all the difference for years to come. It's important to invest in a product that will last for many years and won't need to be replaced.
Instead of asking your local installer, watch this video that discusses all the top brands that Money magazine and US News and World Reports ranked. In alphabetical order, these brands include American Standard, Bryant, Carrier, Goodman, Rheem, and Trane.
According to the magazines that surveyed HVAC installers, Trane ranks the highest overall, but Carrier leads the industry. You'll get the most bang for your buck by buying a Rheem unit, but Goodman offers the best warranty. Anyone looking for an energy-efficient device should prioritize a Bryant HVAC system. To find an HVAC system for any home, shop for an American Standard device, which designs a range of machines.
So, why wouldn't you ask your local installer this question? Most installers undergo training by one manufacturer to become a supplier of their machines. They'll tell you that the manufacturer that makes the machines they represent tops the list.
