TÜV SÜD Expands into HVACR Gas Appliance Certification
In response to the needs of the highly competitive HVACR industry TÜV SÜD is expanding testing and certification capabilities to include gas appliances in addition to electric. As the fastest growing safety certification agency in North America for the HVACR industry TÜV SÜD continues to offer manufacturers a superior path to the necessary approvals for the US, Canadian and European markets.
Since 2012 TÜV SÜD has been steadily growing its HVACR business, offering a much needed quality of service that customers had not previously seen. Making customer service and clear communication a number one priority allowed TÜV SÜD to capture market share at an alarming rate. Customers were not accustomed to top-notch service and found that attaining safety certification without delay allowed for improved market penetration. Once a manufacturer was exposed to a customer driven safety agency, rolling over existing approvals to TÜV SÜD was a foregone conclusion.
Participants at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in Orlando, FL were often surprised to learn that multiple Nationally Recognized Test Labs exist in the US. Discovering this competition in an industry once monopolized by a single agency offers new hope for the elimination of costly delays in the regulatory approval process. The ability to pick up a phone to speak to someone immediately is a service all HVACR manufacturers desire, but didn’t previously have access to in the regulatory compliance market. One customer at a time the friendly staff at TÜV SÜD continues to win the hearts of some of the biggest names in the HVAC industry.
