5 Reasons to Choose a Carrier Heating and Cooling System
With so many heating and air conditioning options available, researching which home comfort system to buy can seem like an overwhelming task. Even deciding on the right system from a single manufacturer can be tough. As a proud dealer of Carrier products, we hope the following information will help make that decision a little easier.
Efficiency ratings are similar to gas mileage for a car – the higher the rating, the more efficient the product. All heating and air systems are given the following ratings, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from your investment:
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) – This measures an air conditioning unit efficiency over the cooling season. For example, Carrier’s Infinity 21 air conditioner receives up to 21.0 SEER. That’s one of the highest ratings on the market.
HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) – This measurement gauges the heating mode of heat pumps. Most new units have ratings from 7.0 to 9.4. Carrier’s Infinity 20 heat pump receives up to 13.0 HSPF.
AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) – This measurement gauges heating fuel usage. For example, Carrier’s Infinity 98 gas furnace receives 98.5% AFUE, meaning that the unit is using 98.5 percent of its fuel efficiently.
2. Puron Refrigerant
Carrier was the first 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.
Carrier specializes in creating customized home comfort systems with a broad selection of heating and cooling products. Barineau’s home comfort specialists can help you choose the best system for your home, including Carrier-exclusive features that further enhance your indoor environment.
Below are some of the ways a Carrier system creates year-round comfort for your home:
Greenspeed Intelligence is an unmatched technology that takes into account your complete comfort, from degrees to dollars to decibels. It marries adaptable-speed technology with Infinity intelligence to deliver precise comfort, constantly matching the comfort demands of the home. This translates into reduced energy use and reduced temperature swings throughout your home.
Comfort Heat Technology Feature
Carrier’s Comfort Heat Technology feature accurately predicts the need for heating, while cutting temperature swings in half, and provides a nearly continuous flow of warmth in low-capacity operation for steadier, more consistent indoor temperatures.
The Infinity System allows you to control temperature, humidity, air quality, fan speed and ventilation with Carrier’s revolutionary Infinity Touch Control. It even detects when your air filter needs to be replaced and automatically adjusts to your systems’ needs for peak performance. It’s the ultimate control center for your home comfort system.
Ideal Humidity System Technology
Ideal Humidity System Technology automatically adds or removes just the right amount of moisture to keep your home comfortable. It can help you save on energy costs, too. When the humidity is right, you can feel comfortable at higher temperatures in the summer and lower temperatures in the winter.
Home comfort shouldn’t come at your ears’ expense. That’s why quiet is built right into every Carrier system. Carrier furnaces feature the QuiTech noise reduction system that provides comfortable heat while generating very little noise in the process.
5. Hybrid Heat Systems
Using both a heat pump and a furnace, Carrier’s Hybrid Heat System will keep you comfortable whether it’s slightly chilly or extremely cold. Carrier’s Hybrid Heat technology gauges the outside air temperature and selects the source that’s most effective for the conditions.
