Day and Night brand products include split-system air conditioners and heat pumps, as well as furnaces. The company also manufactures packaged HVAC systems and fan coils. The International Comfort Products (ICP) markets Day and Night products for homes and commercial buildings.
As part of the Carrier Corp., ICP is a subsidiary of the conglomerate corporation United Technologies Corp. (UTC) and is headquartered in Lewisburg, Tenn. Hartford, Conn.-based UTC trades on the New York stock exchange as UTX, and in 2017 saw net sales of $59.8 billion. In 2013, UTC’s Climate, Controls & Security division, which includes Carrier and its subsidiaries, was combined with Otis to form UTC Building & Industrial Systems.
Day and Night began in 1909 as a California-based solar water heating company. In the 1930s, it began manufacturing space heaters and, over time, developed into residential and commercial heating and air conditioning products. In 1945, Dresser Industries acquired the Day & Night brand, along with several others. Four years later, Day & Night, Payne, and Bryant bought themselves out of Dresser and founded Affiliated Gas Equipment Inc. (AGE). In 1955, Carrier purchased AGE, then uniting those brands as the BDP Co. in 1974, although today it operates under Carrier’s ICP company. The Day and Night name was dropped from use in 1997, but brought back in 2009.
Day and Night’s top-of-the-line manufactured systems feature the Observer Communicating System. The highest tier air conditioners and heat pumps have efficiency ratings of up to 19 SEER with up to 22 SEER mini-splits, and the gas furnaces have up to 97 percent AFUE, although the company also offers entry-level models with lower efficiencies (and cost). The company also offers a range of high- and mid-efficiency oil furnaces, and packaged units. Day and Night also makes accessories to help maximize efficiency.
Timely product registration is required for coverage, which includes a limited 10-year parts warranty. Depending on the product, heat exchangers may have longer coverage. A “No Hassle Warranty” is available in which a replacement part is provided for any component that fails under the warranty time frame.
