Carrier launches Infinity gas furnace line
October 7, 2011 - Carrier—a global player in HVACR solutions (part of United Technologies Corp.)—introduced its Infinity gas furnace line, which promises “industry-leading energy efficiency and sound ratings”. With Greenspeed intelligence, the gas furnace line 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, boasts Carrier, and is the most energy-efficient furnace in Carrier history, with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) up to 98%. 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 db—less than the sound of a refrigerator, says Carrier.
