Carrier is the first of the big 5 brands for the Greater Orlando area. United Technologies is the parent corporation and owns the brands Bryant and Payne. All of these systems are distributed through the local Totaline. The combination of the three brands represents the highest market share for any manufacturer in the area and has many long-time dedicated dealers.
Goodman is another popular brand choice for Orlando and the rest of the nation. Goodman has the highest market share of any single brand in the United States at nearly 26%. The parent company of Goodman, Daikin, owns their own distribution centers and has more in the state of Florida than any of their competitors and local centers in Orlando, Sanford and Kissimmee. Amana and Daikin brand equipment are also manufactured by Daikin and distributed through Goodman and Johnstone Supply locations.
Trane is another popular brand that has a large and dedicated contractor and homeowner customer base. They have a high market share with satisfied customers. They typically request the same equipment they had little troubles with.
Lennox and Rheem finish out the top 5 brands with the highest market share in Tampa. By selecting any of these brands, you can feel confident the manufacturer and distributor will be around throughout the life of that system. We estimate "the big 5" represent more than 90% of the HVAC systems installed in Orlando. Some less popular brands that have significant presence are York and Nordyne products which include Maytag, Frigidaire, Comfortmaker and more.
