Overview of the Infinity 18
The Carrier Infinity 18 is a high efficiency air conditioner. Offering up to 18 SEER when paired with compatible components, this series uses Puron refrigerant and is available in 2- to 5-ton models.
Features of the 38TDB include a 2-speed compressor, the company’s proprietary “Silencer System” to maintain quiet operation as low as 69 decibels, and an on-board self-diagnostic system for quick maintenance. A copper tube aluminum fin coil, high and low pressure switches, and liquid line filter drier are additional components of this series.
The exterior of the unit is protected with Carrier's WeatherArmor System, including a condenser grille guard, powder paint finish, and ceramic-coated cabinet screws. Optional accessories such as a low-pressure and high-pressure switch kit are also available.

"Sears and Carrier"
Sears Installed this unit in September, 2013 and we only have problems after problems with this unit, after four month the technician told me that they have to replace the compressor. Sears is the worst company to deal with house improvements in Nassau County, NY. Please don't use Sears or Carrier try to find a dealer with good reputation. Thanks

We spent a large amount of money on a Carrier system with a heat pump. We were assured that it was the greatest. It has never performed like it was advertised and now is kaput! The compny we bought it from would not honor a guarantee because they said it had only a 5 year warranty! We are going with a Sears Kenmore without a heat pump and a 10 year warranty and we are happy.

Unit is crap after 8 years pd more than $11,000 dollars should last many years but no coil leaks and cost more to fix in labor to redo everything in attic to make new coil fit, than a new unit would cost, someone should sue the corp

Has caused us nothing but money. replaced 2 compressors, a condensor switch and a fan motor. Carrier should give us a better unit and pay all installation. I do not recommend or will we buy one again.
Other Infinity 18 Reviews
As a commercial unit, the 38TDB Infinity has very few consumer reviews across the web. However, the Carrier Infinity air conditioning series has a strong presence on review sites and forums. Several review sites, including webhvac.com and hvacreview.net, recommend these systems for homeowners in warmer climates because of the unit's high efficiency and durability.
Homeowners and contractors on gardenweb.com also are pleased with Carrier’s top-of-the-line Infinity units. Although several homeowners mention the installation took more than a day and the unit’s high price point, other consumers report a noticeable decrease in their utility bill with the new unit. With minimal troubleshooting issues reported across the web, professionals also note very little issues with these systems when properly installed.
