Carrier Gas Furnace Prices and Reviews 2024


Before you dive into the specific brand review, we highly recommend you to read our elaborate Gas Furnace Buying Guide in advance. There are several crucial steps you need to take before you even start to think about the brand.

Carrier gas furnace is one of PICKHVAC recommendations which is ranked up there with the Trane, Coleman, and Amana. They are twice expensive when compared to other brands like Goodman, Heil and Rheem. Carrier furnace is famous for being reliable and durable. It is a good option if you plan to live in the same house for the next ten years or more. They have one of the best warranties in the market. The Carrier Infinity Series come up with warranties on parts and a lifetime warranty on the body exchanger. Now let’s check the content table of this article:

Carrier’s Features

Greenspeed Efficiency Optimization

Carrier Greenspeed intelligence was introduced in 2011 on the Carrier Infinity heat pump, and it changed the industry. The heart of Greenspeed technology is a modulating compressor, also called a variable-speed compressor. Rather than run at just one (single-stage) or two (two-stage) levels, the compressor speeds up and slows down in small increments between 40 percent to 100 percent capacity. The result is precise heating and air conditioning that optimizes energy efficiency and indoor climate control.

Additional benefits of Carrier Greenspeed intelligence are:

  • Quieter cycles
  • Balanced indoor temperatures throughout the home
  • More dehumidification during air conditioning cycles
  • Improved performance of air purifiers and humidifiers that are part of the HVAC system

Communication Features to Hook up a Smart Phone (Only for Infinity Series)

This is designed for diagnostic tuning and troubleshooting while the basic models do not have this function. We believe this is bells and whistles for the gas furnace, not very practical for homeowners.

Note: Carrier communicating thermostat is proprietary which means if something goes wrong you can’t buy it at the local hardware store. If there is no stock of your corresponding parts, you have to wait 1-3 weeks for the part to be shipped from parts center.

Carrier’s Ideal Humidity System

Most of the Carrier gas furnace brands have the Ideal Humidity system. The system adjusts the humidity in the house along with the temperature depending on the season. This system comes into play during the hot seasons aiding the air conditioner in keeping the house cool.

Comfort Heat Technology (unique)

The Comfort heat technology is an intelligently fixed feature with heating cycles. The heating cycles help reduce temperature swings in the house. They help improve the efficiency of the gas furnace and make the house more comfortable.

What is the most cost-effective model For Carrier furnace?

When you’re looking for the most cost-effective heating, the strategy is to find the balance between furnace cost and energy costs. Let’s use the zone map again to identify efficiency levels for each that strike that balance:

The high efficiency of the carrier units was as a result of a lawsuit that has now been settled. They had used inferior materials to manufacture critical parts like the condensing heat that could not last the expected lifespan of 20 years. All carrier furnaces manufactured after 2008 were not part of this lawsuit.

Contractor Reviews For Carrier

The carrier gas furnaces rank with the very best and offer a range of efficiencies and capacities. The carrier just like other brands will only service units they have installed. They also sell service parts to technicians who work for them. This simply means you will pay more for future repairs and servicing. Regular repair guys will charge you less the repair guys from the company.
