legitimate barriers to entry would be things like skilled happy workers, technological prowess, expensive tools and the like
when we allow government to erect barriers to entry we enter the realm of fascism; where corporations; brands are chosen by state decree rather than consumer preference in the market.
so we have a single market participant here; carrier... they already have huge barriers to entry in government contracts; regulatory capture
now we're talking about also giving them tax breaks. Individual tax breaks for themselves... and not for their prospective competitors.
Anyone attempting to break into the HVAC industry would still have to pay taxes, while complying with regulations probably written by carrier, and without carrier's state contracts.
