BBB International Torch Award Finalist

Gary’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. – Amarillo’s trusted name when it comes to air conditioning repair, heating installation, and many other forms of HVAC service – was recently presented with an award for being named a finalist in the International Torch Award for Ethics competition by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Gary’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. was one of the top five businesses within the award competition, which considers and evaluates businesses from all around the continent. There was a press conference held at Gary’s Heating and Air Conditioning’s office in Amarillo to commemorate the award.

The International Torch Award For Ethics From The BBB

Janna Kiehl, the Executive Director of the Better Business Bureau, provided some much appreciated praise and kind words for our company. “We are honored that Gary’s Heating and Air Conditioning has joined an elite group of companies from throughout the country. Gary’s represents what is good and right in the Amarillo area business community. This award honors companies for outstanding marketplace ethics.”

A few comments from the judges of the competition also had this to say about Gary’s Heating & AC:

  • Impressive community engagement, in particular, the yearly furnace giveaway to a needy family.
  • The company’s 100% guarantee on all work done for customers.
  • The company is very customer AND employee focused.

We love coming to work each day and helping people throughout our communities make their homes and businesses more comfortable through HVAC repair, service, and installation.

More About the International Torch Awards

70 companies from the United States, Canada, and Mexico entered the 2017 International Torch Award for Ethics competition. Each one of the entrants was first selected in local Torch Award competitions, and Gary’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. won the BBB Amarillo’s 16th Annual Torch Awards Competition in February. This is considered quite an achievement for a business that is locally owned and operated.

The winners of Torch Awards are thoroughly reviewed by an independent panel of judges. In order to earn a selection, a business needs to exemplify and demonstrate excellence in a number of characteristics and professional aspects.

Some of the most important criteria evaluated by the judges are:

  • Leadership character.
  • Ethical practices in the marketplace.
  • High standard of behavior toward customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and communities.
  • Truthfulness and accuracy of advertising and sales practices.
  • Ethical reputation among industry peers and communities in which they do business.
  • Training and communications programs to assist employees in carrying out established ethics policies.

Why The International Torch Awards Are Important

The Torch Awards highlight the many outstanding, upstanding businesses that do the right thing, every day in business and in community leadership. BBB Torch Award honorees excel at customer satisfaction, but they also serve their employees, investors, competitors, and communities with integrity and distinction. Not since 2002 has Amarillo had a finalist in the International Awards competition when Amarillo National Bank was named a finalist. This is truly an honor for Gary’s Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. and a landmark day for Amarillo. Thank you, once again, to everyone who has supported us!
