Carrier Air Conditioners

Credited with creating the first modern air conditioning system, Carrier has been a mainstay in the industry for some 90 years. Many homeowners have found their products to be both reliable and long-lasting. If you’re considering a Carrier Air Conditioner for your own home, here is some more information to get you started.

Costs

The cost of a Carrier air conditioner depends on the size, make and model that you go with. You can find a dealer in your area here, or contact a licensed HVAC contractor near you for help selecting a system.

Pros

Carrier offers heat pumps that can be paired with your air conditioning system so the unit can work year-round.

Carrier boasts air conditioning units with a SEER rating of up to 21.

Cons

Durability

Considered a leader in the air conditioning industry, Carrier products are known for their durability. Carrier compressors work better than most of their competitors, helping their products last longer as well. Of course, the better you clean and maintain your air conditioner, the longer it will run problem-free.

Maintenance

Neglecting your air conditioning unit can lead to an annual efficiency loss of 5%. In order to keep it running smoothly, make sure to clear any leaves, dirt or debris that may be blocking air flow.

Also, change the filters regularly and avoid using a hose to clean the interior of the unit, as this can lead to electrical issues. Any other required maintenance should be completed by a trained professional. Always call an expert at the first sign of a problem with your air conditioner.
