Jan. 2, 2009: Consumers Digest Names Carrier Heat Pump a Premium Best Buy

INDIANAPOLIS - Carrier Corp. announced that it was awarded a Consumers Digest Best Buy designation for its Infinity™ heat pump. Of the three levels of this award - premium, midrange, and economy - Carrier was awarded the top recognition. Best Buys are selected on factors such as energy efficiency, noise levels, features, and the manufacturer’s reputation for reliability.

The Infinity heat pump is an ultra-high-efficiency unit with up to 19 SEER rating, well above the industry minimum of 13 SEER, providing one of the most efficient heat pumps offered. “The Infinity is simply the best on the market,” stated Consumers Digest. “We couldn’t find a whole-house heat pump with a higher SEER rating, and its HSPF rating is among the industry leaders. Plus, Carrier’s reputation for high quality is well-deserved with this model.”

The Infinity heat pump features two-stage operation and IdealHumidity™ technology. This humidity management function is designed to enable homeowners to maintain maximum comfort in their home. They can enjoy longer heating cycles at lower fan speeds, which provide energy savings and more consistent temperatures throughout the house than single-speed systems. This system can be installed with the Infinity control, allowing the user enhanced diagnostics, including filter change reminders based on airflow through the system and not on a calendar. Homeowners can regulate temperature, humidity, airflow, ventilation, indoor air quality, and zoning all from one control. A remote access option on the Infinity control allows customers to change their system settings from a phone or via the Internet.

The Consumers Digest Best Buy rating is awarded, on average, to fewer than 3 percent of the competing models in any given product category. Premium selection indicates feature rich benefits and value for the money as well as high quality.
