Heat Pump

Heat PumpCarrier’s exclusive ComfortHeart™ Heat Pump System features two stages, allowing the heat pump to operate for longer periods at a lower stage. The result is more consistent temperature, greater air circulation, and improved air quality. This system can deliver warmer air by up to 20 degrees while in heating mode.

Heat PumpCarrier’s Hybrid Heat™ delivers peace of mind to homeowners concerned about the unpredictable nature of utility costs. Hybrid Heat pairs a gas furnace with an electric heat pump to provide comfort, economy, and flexibility.

Your Carrier Hybrid Heat system will automatically switch between electric and gas heating as needed to keep your home comfortable all winter long while optimizing the efficiencies of each fuel source. And, because the heat pump also delivers cool comfort when it’s hot outside, your Hybrid Heat system is a complete year-round indoor comfort solution. Ask us if Hybrid Heat is right for you.

Puron® Refrigerant

Heat PumpPuron® 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™ 16 heat pump with Puron® refrigerant delivers excellent 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.


Because heat pumps provide both heating and cooling their efficiency is measured with two distinct ratings.

  • While in the cooling mode, heat pumps receive a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER number. SEER is like gas mileage. The higher the gas mileage or SEER, the more efficient the automobile or system is. Most new heat pumps rate between 13.0 and 19.0 SEER.
  • While in the heating mode, heat pumps also receive a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor or HSPF rating. Again, the higher the number, the more efficiently the system works. Most new units have ratings between 7.7 and 9.0 HSPF.

As an ENERGY STAR® partner, Carrier Corporation has determined that the Infinity™ 16 heat pumps that achieve system combinations of 14.0 SEER, 8.2 HSPF, and 11.5 EER or higher meet the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency.

Carrier’s Infinity™ 16 Heat pump is available with efficiency ratings of up to 16.0 SEER when cooling and up to 9.0 HSPF when heating. For every $100 spent to cool your home using a 10.0 SEER heat pump, a 16.0 SEER heat pump should cost you approximately $63. Actual savings will depend on the efficiency of your current system compared to the efficiency of a new system.

Carrier specializes in creating a customized home comfort system tailored to your needs with our broad selection of residential heating and cooling products. We can help you choose the best system for your home including Carrier-exclusive features that further enhance your indoor environment.

  • When combined with a variable speed furnace or fan coil and our exclusive Infinity™ Control, this air conditioner can be part of Carrier’s revolutionary Infinity™ System. It’s the only system in the industry that controls temperature, humidity, air quality, fan speed, and ventilation with the added ability to detect when your air filter needs to be replaced.
  • Two-stage cooling means longer cooling cycles to help eliminate hot spots and maintain a more even, consistent temperature throughout your home. 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.Heat Pump
  • Bothered 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 IdealHumidity in your home, add a Carrier humidifier, variable speed furnace or fan 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 74 dBA, the Infinity™ 16 heat pump is almost as quiet and unobtrusive as a kitchen refrigerator. And, because it sits outside your home, you’ll rarely, if ever hear it running inside.
