"Experience with this furnace"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

Installed in 2007, in 2008 no heat; problem with the condensate filter (plugged) – how the heck I don’t know! Cleaned by service man and worked well. Then in 2013 the thermostat malfunctioned. This was replaced by the service man. Then again in August 2015 the thermostat was replaced again by the service man. No heat, this worked. Then on January 2nd had no heat again. Now we have to replace the motor unit (there is a motor and a fan together). Cost $850.00 just for the unit. Could hear a rubbing sound from the little motor that is attached to the fan. I was told that this may have to be replaced as it is overheating and cutting off. My old furnace may not have been high efficiency, but it lasted over 30 years with a few service calls. The replacement of this motor unit is about half the cost of a new furnace! Is Carrier screwing people, doing fraudulent advertising? Total cost to get this going could be about $1200.00. This is not high efficiency (only for the Carrier makers).

"Have contractor"

I’m a service tech. We sell Trane and Carrier. We dropped Trane. Their stuff got real bad when they went to selling at Home Depot. As far as evaporater coils leaking for air conditioning, you can thank your Uncle Sam for that. It’s every company, making the coils metal as thin as possible to meet efficiency standards. In fact, I know of customers that went through two coils in 8 years. And not a Carrier unit, either. If you’re dealing with a certified Carrier dealer, some of these problems would be easier solved. I know. Carrier is a great company to deal with. Here is some advice: a high efficiency equipment is great, but all the money you saved on utilities is out the window on repairs unless you have very high bills. For me, I’ll be putting a 80% something gas furnace in. And I’ll still save money because I’m getting rid of the standing pilot, which cost about $10 a month. And yes, it will be a Carrier gas furnace with A/C and an ECM blower motor to help with comfort.

"Won’t buy Carrier again"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Installed in 2006, the furnace broke down 4 times, and here in 2015 the furnace is leaking water from a rusted-out evaporator. I think a $7200 (with A/C install) furnace should last a hell of a lot longer, considering it’s only turned on half the year. I will rebuild it myself, make do. But I will replace it with something better (anything).

"Very satisfied after almost 10 years"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

We went from a mid-1980’s furnace to this high efficiency one in 2004. It has worked without an issue since the install. The high efficiency has reduced our gas consumption and paid for itself years ago. The DC fan also uses less electricity, so savings there both in the winter and in the summer (when the A/C is on).

"Do not buy it."

The blower quit after only 3 years, with no warranty. Now, something is making a humming noise. Hmmm…

Other Infinity 96 Reviews

Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are mixed in opinion but generally favor the Carrier equipment:

  • In the HVAC-Talk forums some posters claim that Carrier’s air blowers and inducer motors are loud and rattling but do run consistently and provide good results.
  • Others in the HVAC-Talk forums state that Carrier requires a considerable amount of precision and maintenance to run, but the wiring is easy and consistent with industry standards, and repairs are very easy to conduct.
  • One author at the HVAC-Talk forums claimed that a Carrier’s inducer motor failed after 13 years and was easy to fix.
  • Another person, presumably a professional in the heating and cooling industry, insisted Carrier was one of the best brands on the market, in engineering, performance, and dependability.
