Created temp page[edit]

Hi, just mentioning the non-copyright violation temp page for this article created Carrier Corporation/Temp. It will be moved to Carrier Corporation once I deal with the copyvio version (shortly). Bumm13 03:40, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed that the subsidiary International Cold Storage is not listed on this page. I'm only a newbie and not familiar with the coding, so I'm just mentioning it here, and the url https://www.icsco.com .Partsguyjim (talk) 18:24, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Carrier is certified by AHRI not AHAM. Also Carrier is no longer the global leader - that would be Diakin AC (japan)Still the largest in the US. 487 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.249.47.71 (talk) 13:02, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

World's Largest?[edit]

OK, let me phrase my question a different way. Can anyone cite a reference for the claim that Carrier is the "world's largest" manufacturer of HVAC systems? Their own web site only claims that they are a "world leader" which could mean anything. 86.136.89.48 (talk) 19:38, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm unconvinced by this claim. I'm not sure this company is very big outside of America. The Japanese and Korean brands (Daikin, Mitsubishi, Samsung etc.) are certainly the most common here in the UK at least. 193.113.37.7 (talk) 12:13, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
And the UK is only the size of Oregon, and (in my experience) is mostly not air-conditioned. :-) Here's the UK Faq, since I'm guessing Search Engines must be taxed where you are... [[1]]. Markvs88 (talk) 13:25, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
When was the last time you visited the UK? Almost all hotels, offices and shops are now air-conditioned here, as are an increasing number of homes. According to Wikipedia, the population of Oregon is only about 3.5 million. the UK's population is closer to 60 million. Hardly comparable. I remain unconvinced that Carrier is the "largest" HVAC company in the world. There's a lot of the world that isn't America. 193.113.37.9 (talk) 12:14, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
2008. (And if you think you've seen AC, try shopping/dining in midtown Manhattan!) Anyway, I had to buy a fan because there wasn't none and no AC in our hotel. (A 30-room 3 star in Victoria). The pubs I visited typically were not, excepting a few in SoHo and one in Warwick. Maybe you wait until it's 32C+ to turn 'em on? :-) In any event, as I said the *size* of the UK is roughly equal to Oregon: 243,610 (UK) vs. 251180 (Oregon) in square kilometers. My point being that it's a relatively smaller country and so the number of buildings utilizing AC is still going to be less than in the US, Germany, France, et al given their warmer climate and greater areas. Unless you can find a claim to the contrary, it's a fact from Carrier's own pages. I'd think their competition would take umbrage for false advertisting if it weren't true. Best, Markvs88 (talk) 13:40, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
The Carrier website currently only claims that they are "the world leader in Air Conditioning" this is not the same as saying it is the largest. Midea claim to be the largest on their Australian website (http://www.mideaair.com.au/(S(l0bhh5n4x4gttyjz4jdfipjk))/About.aspx) which also refers to "Expected sales of over 17 million units in 2008".

Carrier Enterprise Canada[edit]

I'd like to proposed a merge here of Carrier Enterprise Canada: there doesn't seem to be anything particularly notable about Carrier Canada that can't be covered here. Altered Walter (talk) 16:43, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
