Today, Standard Heating & Air Conditioning is a Bryant Factory Authorized Dealer. Tom is a long-time board member of the Better Business Bureau and the Subcontractors Association of Alabama. He had received in the Carrier Dealer Hall of Fame in 2012. Throughout all of these years, he is still as excited and motivated as ever toward providing great service and using top-tier products throughout Birmingham and surrounding areas.
