INDIANAPOLIS — U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., recently visited the Carrier manufacturing facility in Indianapolis to view its new Infinity® high-efficiency gas furnace line.

Lugar addressed the economic and environmental benefits of energy efficiency and his “Practical Energy Plan,” which encourages states to adopt a long-term framework to improve energy savings in new homes and buildings.

“The efficiencies you have achieved here at Carrier are truly impressive,” said Lugar. “One of our key objectives within the Senate is to think of new ways to increase energy efficiency within the U.S. and provide business and consumer incentives to do exactly what you are doing here — saving money within your facility by reducing energy consumption and developing energy-efficient products that will help homeowners save money.”

Carrier’s new Infinity® gas furnace line, with Greenspeed™ intelligence, was released earlier this year and features units that combine modulating and variable-speed technologies with a communicating control system to constantly adapt to a home’s conditions.

“It’s a tremendous honor to have Senator Richard Lugar and his team visit Carrier to discuss energy efficiency and view our latest ultra-efficient Infinity furnace line,” said Rick Sanfrey, president of operations, Carrier Residential Systems. “Carrier continually invests in research and development to expand the energy-efficient range of its products. The new Infinity furnace line delivers precise comfort with reduced energy use, and includes the most energy-efficient furnace in Carrier history, with an AFUE up to 98 percent.”
