One of the most common questions we often get is this: Which are the best furnaces that clients can choose from? There are several excellent heating systems from different brands available to today’s customers, and all the information regarding these can be quite confusing and overwhelming.
One brand that we highly we recommend to our customers when it comes to furnaces is Carrier.
In all of our years of experience in the HVAC industry, we have encountered different furnaces from different manufacturers. Each of these have its own sets of advantages and disadvantages.
From these experiences, we have seen firsthand why Carrier is among the leading manufacturers of furnaces in today’s market.
One of the key factors that you should consider when buying a furnace is its efficiency, which is measured using the annual fuel utilization efficiency or AFUE rating. This rating refers to the percentage of fuel that is converted into usable heat.
Carrier offers three different types of furnaces with AFUE ratings ranging between 80 to 98 percent, 80 to 95 percent (Performance Series) and 80 to 95 percent (Comfort Series). These models are among the most efficient furnaces that you will find in the market today.
In terms of performance and features, Carrier’s range of furnaces are at par, if not superior, to other models from other brands. One valuable feature that tips our favor toward this brand is the humidity control option. This is a nifty feature that eliminates the problem of dry air that is typically associated with other furnace models. This feature can also help protect family members who may be suffering from asthma or are immuno-compromised.
But how about reliability?
In our experience, a well-maintained Carrier furnace rarely breaks down. In situations wherein the furnace breaks down, we can easily repair the system and have it up and running in no time because it is easy to source replacement parts. Furthermore, the brand also offers customers a 10-year warranty for the parts of their furnaces. Should the warranty lapse or become void, the replacement parts are very affordable.
Here at Ventwerx HVAC, we carry three models from Carrier: the Carrier Comfort 80 Gas Furnace 58STA, Carrier Performance 80 Gas Furnace 58CTW, and the Carrier Infinity 96 Gas Furnace 59TN6.
These models feature the best of what Carrier can offer to homeowners and we put our seal of approval on these models. If you wish to learn which of these is suitable for your home, do not hesitate to contact us. We will gladly provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
