Puron® Refrigerant

Air ConditionerPuron® refrigerant is environmentally sound and won’t deplete the ozone layer. Carrier introduced Puron® refrigerant a full six years ahead of the competition, paving the way for the future. The Clean Air Act of 1990 prohibits the production of HCFC-based air conditioners and heat pumps by 2010 and bans Freon® -22 production by 2020.

As Freon® production reduces, its cost is predicted to increase. Freon® -12 in the automotive industry increased by a whopping 800% in a short seven years! Ensure your cooling costs by investing in systems with Puron® refrigerant – environmentally sound, efficient, and dependable refrigerant designed for the future. Carrier’s Infinity™ 17 air conditioner with Puron® refrigerant and two-stage technology delivers excellent efficiency, reliability, and proven performance.


Neither rain nor hail nor golf or soccer balls can keep a Carrier system from doing its job – they’re built tough inside and out.


  • WeatherArmor Ultra™ protection and galvanized steel cabinet protect against corrosion and keep your system looking its best for years.
  • Louvered coil guard looks great and helps keep your system operating at its best by protecting your coil from rocks, sticks, lawn and sports equipment and more.
  • Baked-on powder paint evenly coats all exterior painted surfaces to provide superior rust and corrosion protection.


  • Forward-swept fan blades maximize airflow for enhanced performance and sound reduction.
  • Filter drier removes moisture and debris from the refrigerant to protect the compression and maintain top efficiency and performance.
  • Carrier’s two-stage compression has the most trouble-free performance record of any compressor on the market today.


Air ConditionerSeasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER is like gas mileage. A higher SEER rating means a more energy-efficient air conditioning system. As of mid-January of 2006, the U.S. Department of Energy requires home cooling systems to meet a minimum of 13.0 SEER. Carrier was one of the first leading air conditioner manufacturers to fully support this environmentally sound mandate.

  • Carrier’s Infinity™ 17 air conditioner is available with efficiency ratings of up to 17.0 SEER – one of the highest SEER ratings offered.
  • As an Energy Star® partner, Carrier Corporation has determined that the Infinity™ 17 air conditioners that achieve combinations of 14.0 SEER and 11.5 EER or higher meet Energy Star® guidelines for energy efficiency.

For every $100 spent to cool your home using a 10.0 SEER air conditioner, a 17.0 SEER air conditioner should cost you approximately $59. Actual savings will depend on the efficiency of your current system compared to the efficiency of a new system.

It’s like getting two air conditioners in one.

– Operates in low stage up to 80% of the time delivering more consistent temperature, enhanced air circulation and improved air quality while saving on utility costs.

– High stage operation delivers additional cooling as conditions require.

  • Air ConditionerBothered by that dry, “staticky” feeling in the winter or that muggy feeling in the summer? IdealHumidity™ monitors and adjusts your home’s humidity level even when the system isn’t actively heating or cooling. To achieve Ideal Humidity in your home, add a Carrier humidifier, variable speed furnace or fain coil and Infinity™ Control to your system.


Carrier’s exclusive Silencer System II™ ensures extra-quiet operation by maximizing airflow and minimizing vibrations. With sound ratings as low as 72 dBA, the Infinity™ 17 air conditioner is as quiet and unobtrusive as a kitchen refrigerator. And, because it sits outside your home, you’ll rarely, if ever hear it running inside.


The Carrier Infinity™ 17 air conditioner is protected by a 10-year limited warranty on the compressor and a five-year limited warranty on the entire unit. Extended warranties are also available.
