Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) solutions and a part of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), introduces its new ultra-efficient Infinity® gas furnace line, providing consumers with industry-leading energy efficiency and sound ratings.
The new Infinity gas furnace line with Greenspeed™ intelligence combines modulating and variable-speed technologies with a communicating control system to constantly adapt to a home’s conditions. The furnace line will deliver precise comfort with reduced energy use, and is the most energy-efficient furnace in Carrier history, with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) up to 98.5%.
“Carrier is pleased to launch our new ultra-efficient furnace platform, and we are confident it will be well received since installing contractors were an integral part of the development process,” said Bob McDonough, president, UTC Climate, Controls & Security Systems – Americas.
“Their feedback ensured we designed a furnace line with higher efficiency and quiet operation, while also providing ENERGY STAR® qualified solutions that are easier to install and service.”
Carrier Infinity® 98 Features
Carrier Infinity® Systems represent years of innovation in gas furnace technology. The Infinity® 98 Gas Furnace features:
- Efficiency – AFUE ratings as high as 98.5%
- Humidity Management – Precise humidity regulation
- Hybrid Heat System – Switches between electric and gas
- Sound Control – One of the quietest furnaces you can buy
- Limited Warranty – 10-year parts and lifetime heat exchanger limited warranty
Carrier’s investment has also resulted in the quietest gas furnace Carrier has ever built. The furnace’s quiet operation is made possible by technology that distributes heated air at the lowest possible setting for the majority of the heating season. In low-fire mode, where the furnace operates most often, sound ratings are as low as 38.4 decibels, (which is somewhere between a quiet conversation and a whisper!).
“The introduction of the most energy-efficient and quietest furnace in our company’s long history takes Carrier’s natural leadership with environmental technologies to a higher degree,” said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Climate, Controls & Security System.
