Ballard’s Plumbing and Heating is proud to be a Carrier dealer. Our association with Carrier, much like Ballard's, has a long history.   Our ties began when air conditioning was just new to the market.  Irma Noel's grandfather, Will Hanley and Willis Carrier were friends, they met  when the Lilly capsule plant in Indianapolis had air conditioning installed in 1912 .

Carrier Corporation has been the world leader in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heating industry since Willis Carrier, their founder, invented the basics on modern air conditioning in 1902. To maintain their edge in the industry Carrier Corporation selects their dealer using a strict criteria.  Ballard's is proud to be selected as northern Michigan's Carrier Dealer.
