Read more about CARRIER Furnaces
The Carrier 58 MVP furnace is a gas furnace from Carrier's Weathermaker Infinity line of products. The 58 MVP can achieve 96% AFUE and appears to be no longer manufactured by Carrier. The current model that most closely resembles the 58 MVP is the Infinity 96 gas furnace.
The Carrier 58 MVP provides just enough heat to maintain the desired indoor temperature, while operating at a low capacity to save energy dollars. A variable speed motor and a computerized control center enable the 58 MVP to operate efficiently. The furnace has two heat exchangers; the first one uses 80% of the gas for heat and the second one uses 12 - 16%.

"5 years and the parts started going"
Would never buy a Carrier furnace again. Overpriced and not a reliable product. Extremely disappointed.

"No Customer Service, Poor System Design"
Carrier "customer service" will not provide any information to the end- user, no matter how basic, citing liability issues. My issue is that their TrueSense dirty filter technology throws repeated false faults to replace the filter. Carrier directs the end-user to contact a Carrier certified technician. I have been through three such technicians with no fix, just repeated service call charges. Bad design and low-levels of Carrier "certified technician" competence. Do not buy carrier products

It works to create heat. But the inducer motor/fan creates a high pitched noise that is very stressful to me. There are times that I turn the unit off because I would rather sit in the cold than deal with the stress that the sound causes. The sound isn't that bad if I'm two floors up from the unit. My portable electric space heater has been getting a lot of use this winter.... So much for saving money with gas heat.

"Infinity Weathermaker Carrier"
Inducer blower replaced 3 times, igniter replaced once, condensate tube replaced once, pressure switches replaced once, condensate trap plugged once. Awaiting the heat exchanger(s) to fail. The Class Action Lawsuit won't help, our unit is too old. You cannot expect any meaningful warranty coverage from Carrier. Maintenance cost has clearly exceeded the installation cost of the unit. Add in the down time and unreliable nature associated with the unit and I can't recommend to a friend. Living in very cold Minnesota if it fails at -20 while we are on a trip we loose the plumbing, very expensive proposition. If you attempt to reduce the cost of maintenance and do it yourself you can't because the parts cannot be purchased except by a Carrier dealer, proprietary not good IMHO. I take blame for NOT researching the different brands and picking out the best for me. Back in 1994 there simply not many sources like this Blog for research AND not many efficent furnaces to pick from. Do yourself a favor and consider ALL aspects of buying, maintaining, using, paying for a furnace. Carrier might be your choice, just make sure to minimize surprises post installation.

We purchased our WeatherMaker Model 58MVP with our home in 2000. In 1997, the previous owner purchased it as a replacement for a Trane heat pump system installed when the home was built in 1993. She claimed the house never felt warm in the winter before she bought the Carrier unit. We are nearing the end of our sixth heating season and we've had no problems or expense with the system other than air filters. For added peace of mind, the previous owner bought the extended warranty which transferred to us -- but it looks like that's one that will never be used! A great product that will be replaced next time by another Carrier product!
