The Carrier Infinity 80 is a precision-engineering gas furnace with “IdealHumidity” to ensure a constant comfortable temperature in the home. This furnace is rated with an AFUE of up to 80.0%. This is a two-stage, 4-way multipoise model with a variable speed blower motor. The design of the Infinity 80 is CSA certified. The Infinity 80 is part of Carrier’s Infinity Series furnace line.
Let me preface this review with this…ANYONE experiencing issues with a Carrier unit, should NOT be pointing the finger at Carrier, but at the company that installed the unit. Any REPUTABLE Carrier dealer will stand behind the install, and if the installing company determines that it is a manufacturing issue, they will address the issue with Carrier. Totally satisfied with the new Infinity system that we installed. We replaced a good, but aging York (23 years old) single stage unit. What a difference a two stage, variable speed, unit makes – it is indescribable!! Would definitely buy another Carrier, but furthermore, I would have the SAME installer – As I mentioned before – instal is first and foremost!
