i had heard something about h.d. and lennox, but not a.r.s. since a.r.s. is owned by lennox it would make sense. cut out everybody but the manufacturer and the retailer. installers would probably be subs. unfortunately its the wave of the future.

I've heard rumors before about HD lookin to buy someone to get a legit foot into the HVAC retrofit market and with all the stores ARS is getting it looks like they have some sort of relationship forming
I worked for ARS in orlando before I moved back to NY. They were owned by service experts but no longer. We were doing home depot work and then they lost it. All of our tech were paid by incentive 18% of bill with service and piece rate for installs. I believe they had something to do with service masters also. Orlando Fl location was or is pathetic. Are you looking to work there/
