Benefits of Choosing a Carrier HVAC System

When it comes to home comfort, your heating and cooling system is one of the most important purchases you can make. From staying cool in the summer to feeling cozy during the winter months, it’s at the heart of your family’s day-to-day life. When you’re looking for a replacement or choosing a system for your new home build, it’s important to research the best options available. 

An HVAC system is a long-term investment. It can be tempting to go for the cheapest option, but you’ll likely have to pay the difference in repairs later. Carrier HVAC systems are known in the heating and cooling industry for their incredible quality and innovation. Here’s everything you need to know.

1. Efficiency 

Efficiency ratings for HVAC systems are like gas mileage for a car – the higher the rating, the more efficient the product is.  All heating and air systems are given SEER ratings to help customers make informed decisions.  

Each Carrier HVAC system is fueled by innovative technology to save energy and (and money), including: 

  • Up to 24 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio 2 (SEER2) and 16 Energy Efficiency Ratio 2 for central air conditioning. 
  • Up to 22 SEER2, 14 EER2, and 10.5 Heating Seasonal Performance Factor 2 (HSPF2) for heat pumps. 

Carrier systems are at the leading edge of energy-saving HVAC technology, which is good for your wallet and the environment.

2. Puron Refrigerant 

Carrier was the first company to introduce a new, non-ozone-depleting refrigerant – a full six years ahead of the competition – paving the way for the future. Puron refrigerant is chlorine-free, so it doesn’t damage the Earth’s ozone layer. And, as Freon refrigerant becomes less available, Puron refrigerant will be here for years to come. 

3. Comfort 

Carrier specializes in creating customized home comfort systems with a broad selection of heating and cooling products. A few popular options include:  

Infinity® System: This revolutionary application of a two-stage heat pump reduces energy usage and enhances comfort. The Carrier total indoor comfort system will allow you to set up to eight different temperature zones for your home. This customized comfort allows you to make the most of your utility expenditure. 

HYBRID HEAT®: This exclusive dual fuel system pairs a gas furnace with an electric heat pump, providing unparalleled peace of mind and predictable heating and cooling costs. The HYBRID HEAT® dual fuel system will automatically switch between gas and electricity as needed for optimal performance and efficiency. 

Comfort® Heat Pump System: Carrier’s exclusive heat pump system divides its efforts into high and low settings, utilizing the low setting for 80% of all tasks to maintain a consistent temperature and greater air circulation. 

Ideal Humidity™: Humidity plays a huge part in how comfortable you feel inside your home. Are you tired of the dry, static-laden feel of your home? Carrier can provide the perfect solution with an integrated humidifier, variable-speed furnace or fan coil, and Infinity heat pump. This will allow you to feel cooler while the temperature is high in the summer and warmer at low temperatures in the winter, saving you money. Part of being comfortable is ensuring your air is the ideal humidity. 

Durability: WeatherArmor Ultra™: Protect your HVAC system by shielding it from the damage of hail, snow, rain water, pests, mold, and other hazards. This galvanized steel cabinet will keep your system looking great and performing at peak efficiency for years to come.

4. Sound 

While some noise is unavoidable, a heating and cooling system should operate as quietly as possible. Carrier builds HVAC systems with quietness in mind. Carrier furnaces feature the QuieTech noise reduction system that provides comfortable heat while generating very little noise in the process.
