There are way too many HVAC contractors in the Atlanta area. I want to try to eliminate most of them before I start calling. So I have three questions about what seems to be a manufacturer "rating" of contractors.
Bryant's Factory Authorized Dealer
Carrier's Factory Authorized Dealer
Lennox's Dave Lennox Premier Dealer
Rheem Team Top Contractor
Do these and any of the other manufacturer's "factory certified" logos really indicate that the contractor is a first-class, do-it-right company with well trained techs? Some of the manufacturer's web sites display the logo for a few of their dealers and some contractors use them for their web page and advertising.
Does being listed in the manufacturer's web site "Find your local dealer" relate to the quality of the contractor?
How about North American Technician Excellence, Inc. logo? How many of the employees must be certified to earn the NATE logo posted by the contractor?
Thanks for any input.
