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