The SOAR Award recognizes a Top 10 Volume Dealer who has the highest total purchase increase over prior year, highest XL/XV sales increase over prior year, highest ductless sales increase over prior year and the highest Nexia sales increase over prior year.

Two dealers tied for the SOAR award for the first time since the program’s inception: Ed’s Comfort Solutions Inc. and Millian-Aire Enterprises Corporation.
The dealers and guests enjoyed the Universal Orlando Theme park in the afternoon and evening.
