"Great old unit"
My 4 ton Carrier (bdpp) heat pump has preformed flawlessly for 21 years. I had to replace a capacitor, but that is all. I now am having leaks and am looking at replacement units. Even on 109 degree days here in Houston area this unit would cool the house down and cycle. It makes a big difference if the unit is sized correctly and installed properly. I had an engineer size my unit, but I installed it myself. I see a lot of units fail due to poor install. Is your service man using a vacuum pump when they install??? There are a lot of people taking short cuts that cost you. I am looking at another Carrier but worry that nothing is as good as it used to be.

I have owned the unit for barely 10 months when suddenly a 'cf' appeared on the screen. The Carrier customer service agent advised me of procedures on how to have that 'cf' removed. And yes, the procedure successfully had that message removed. However, still, the unit was not cooling. The Carrier service men checked it and said that the compressor had failed. What? In less than a year? We only use the unit 2 hours during daytime and 3 hours at nighttime. My brother bought a very cheap unit less than half of the price of our Carrier AC. And shamefully, theirs is still working properly until now, while ours really sucks! Never will I buy again a Carrier and will discourage everyone I know!

"The Crappiest AC ever"
The central air is ridiculously messed up, it'll freeze over and blow out hot air if it is kept on for a long period of time and it keeps the room at a un-needed temp. There is NOTHING I like about it. We have only had it for a year and a half and it's crappy! It's been repaired once and it didn't last for long, the repairman had to put anti-freeze to keep from doing what it did but it didn't help AT ALL and we don't have the money to get to it replaced so we're stuck with the piece of junk. Another stupid thing it does is go off for a long period of time on a hot day, we had to go to another relatives house until it cooled down! I would never recommend this brand to a friend, over my dead, cold body!

"Carrier Is Junk"
In the first 2 1/2 years my evaporator core and condensing coil had to be replaced about 2 months apart. While Carrier replaced the parts under warranty (no cost) it costs $400 each time for installation and replacement refrigerant. Next time it goes I'll pick another brand.

Evaporated coil develop leak just two month after warranty. It is bad design. Coil should last more than 10 to 15 years. Will not buy again ever. Any one thinking of buy carrier stay away. I know this complaint will not be visible to Carrier but let me air it out. I do not have correct model number but is hvac system with carrier 48HJ series central air conditioner.

Compressor is manufacturing in Mexico is junk, replaced my old unit because it cost 300.00 a year to keep it going, now with my new carrier unit it only cost me on average 580.00 to keep it going.

"Two speed system"
Has not been one year (installed in October 2010). Paid $9600.00 for 2 speed because of the great comfort it will give in Texas summers and savings on my electric bill. No savings on my bills and has been serviced since june 15 and the company keeps quoting 10 year parts and labor but does not want to come back out because they are tired of fooling with it. The temp rises in the house -- it runs all day and the more they rigged it to make it work by changing things the worse it got. We were better off saving our money and let the old one get fixed. They should of never had to come to my house and I trusted them and now look its worse then old unit. My time with family and bill has increased make sure you are properly matched for your house by an engineer. What works for one does not work for another.

I have noticed that everyone has blamed the carrier ac/furnice for all the problems. Its not the ac its the installer and sears. The person that had to change out floors, check the drain-off. It shouldnt be coming into your house so check the drain. The person who changes freon, check your coil or the tubing. The person that bought the ac with the dent. Thats not carriers fault thats sears fault bc they cant handle their products too well, they just dont care. As for the noise its 3t of cooling power how quiet can u expect it to be?
