INDIANAPOLIS - Carrier Corp. has announced the development of a new air-source heat pump that the company says will have the highest heating efficiency available on the market when it is released this summer. The new technology used in this advanced heat pump is known as Carrier® Greenspeed™ intelligence.

Carrier Greenspeed intelligence, which will be available as part of the Infinity® heat pump line ranging from 2 to 5 tons, was introduced at the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Conference & Indoor Air Expo in San Antonio. This new product uses a variable speed scroll compressor, giving homeowners the comfort of consistent indoor temperatures associated with variable speed technology while reducing the use of fossil fuels and lowering electric heating costs. The heat pump will deliver a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) heating efficiency rating up to 13 and cooling efficiencies of up to 20 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio).

“Carrier is committed to developing residential heating and cooling products that take innovation to a higher degree,” said Chris Nelson, vice president sales and marketing, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems. “We are very proud that the new Infinity heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence will be the highest heating efficiency residential air source heat pump available. In the commonly sold 3-ton size, consumers will enjoy a heating efficiency rating 29 to 69 percent higher than any other air-source heat pump on the market today.”

“The Infinity heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence is a revolutionary breakthrough for home comfort and advances Carrier’s natural leadership in environmental technologies,” said John Mandyck, Carrier vice president of Sustainability & Environmental Strategies. “Greenspeed intelligence also demonstrates how technological innovation can reduce energy use and carbon emissions, continuing Carrier’s long-standing commitment to providing sustainable solutions.”

Carrier said the new line of heat pumps is currently in the final stage of field testing, with consumer availability scheduled for this summer.
