Willis Carrier starts the engine that will drive the world’s first modern air conditioning system, installed in the summer of 1902 at the Sackett & Wilhelms printing plant in Brooklyn, New York
With a history of 27 years in Vietnam since 1994, Carrier was among the first US companies to invest in the Vietnamese market. The company is committed to bringing state-of-the-art technologies to the local market to improve well-being and public health.
Over the past few years, Vietnam has witnessed a growing demand for air conditioning systems – whether for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes. The latest report by TechSci Research projected the Vietnamese air conditioner market to witness double-digit growth in the coming years and reach $2.9 billion by 2025.
“The growth of the air conditioner market in Vietnam can be attributed to the increasing tourism and hospitality sector, the development of energy-efficient air conditioners, increasing urban population, and rising temperature levels in Vietnam. Rising disposable income, changing lifestyle, and increasing technological innovations are other factors contributing to this growth,” says the report.
Carrier was one of the first air conditioning companies to become a member of the Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC). Currently, Carrier serves millions of Vietnamese people with its sustainable solutions, integrating energy-efficient products, building controls, and energy services for residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, transportation, and food service clients, among others, including Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi Opera House, Danang Administrative Center, Pullman Saigon Hotel, and Vietcombank Tower. This reflects Carrier’s reliability as a trusted brand for local consumers, companies, and the Vietnamese nation in general.
As an industry leader, Carrier has consolidated its role in enhancing building health to promote personal health, especially during the hard times of the COVID-19 crisis. The ongoing pandemic is a strong reminder that the lockdown has changed the way people and communities live, work, and interact, and it is necessary to make the built environment more resilient. To address this issue, Carrier has introduced its Healthy Buildings Programme, an expanded suite of advanced solutions to help deliver healthy, safe, efficient, and productive indoor environments across key verticals including commercial, healthcare, hospitality, education, retail, and marine buildings.
“COVID-19 has reinforced the already important role that buildings play in ensuring and protecting public health,” said Dave Gitlin, president and CEO of Carrier. “As people return to work, hotels greet guests, schools welcome back students, and stores reopen, indoor air quality and safe buildings are of paramount importance. For the economy to successfully recover, people need to trust in the safety of the buildings they are entering. New technologies like microscopic filtration systems and touchless building controls have gone from nice-to-have conveniences to must-have protections. The Carrier Healthy Buildings Programme can help enable healthier and safer indoor environments as we get back to our new normal.”
The company that invented modern air conditioning is uniquely positioned to deliver healthy building expertise. Through the programme, Carrier’s experts will work closely with customers to not only design but operate, maintain, and upgrade buildings that protect what is most important – the health of those inside.
The programme will draw from a comprehensive suite of solutions and services designed to help improve indoor air quality (IAQ), increase outside air ventilation, and enable touchless interactions. Carrier offers expert services such as consultation, implementation, and continuous monitoring. These services can enable customers to restart, operate, maintain, and upgrade their buildings safely and efficiently.
In addition to Carrier’s comprehensive HVAC, fire, security, and controls product offering, Carrier’s Healthy Buildings offering includes innovative solutions. Its filtration technologies, available in new equipment and for retrofits, include various MERV filters, HEPA filters for particulate matter, and the Infinity electrostatic filters for airborne pathogens. Carrier also offers devices using UVC light, which are intended to target viruses, and UV photocatalytic oxidation to help remove volatile organic compounds and improve IAQ.

Another technology – OptiClean Negative Air Machine – cleans contaminated air and creates pressure to prevent air from spreading to different sections of a building. The ActivAir hybrid hydronic air terminal delivers increased ventilation and outside air – key infection control strategies – in an energy-efficient way with low noise. Meanwhile, Environmental Index in a building automation platform enables building operators to manage temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels in a way that identifies and addresses healthy building performance issues.
Carrier has made its debut as a public company since April 2020 following its seperation from United Technologies Corporation. Carrier expects its Healthy Buildings Programme initiative, which includes commercial air-quality monitoring services, to be a key area of growth in the coming time.
Carrier was founded by the inventor of modern air conditioning Willis Carrier, who invented modern air conditioning in 1902. For over a century, Carrier has been developing innovative products and services that have changed the way people live and work. That drive for innovation continues today with a renewed focus on creating solutions that will change the world for the better.
