What are the Differences in Carrier Air Conditioners?


What are the Differences in Carrier Air Conditioners?
Carrier makes a variety of central air conditioners that meet the differing demands of our customers. This guide provides an outline of what’s available from Carrier and Total Air Solutions, your air conditioning service for Fort Myers and North Port FL. The information can be used to narrow you choices and decide which models you want to take a closer look at.

What are Carrier Infinity Air Conditioners?
These are top of the line models and some of the highest-rated products when it comes to air conditioners.  They may be more expensive than the alternatives, but they are durable and made with high-quality components.  Total Air Solutions offers 4 Carrier Infinity models.

The 2 most efficient, with a 21 SEER are the:

  1. Infinity 24ANA1
  2. Infinity 24ANB1

The SEER rating of a unit is the cooling output in Btu during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. The higher the unit’s SEER rating the more energy efficient it is.

The next two on the list are:

  1. Infinity 24ANB7,  with an 18 SEER rating
  2. Infinity 24ANB6,  with a 17 SEER rating

These air conditioners are 2-stage models that provide very comfortable indoor temperatures.  They run on low most of the time, with longer cycles that produce more balanced temperatures.  For best results, Total Air Solutions combines these ACs with matching Infinity air handlers.  They all use the highly-rated Infinity controller, though the Carrier Edge and Carrier Comfort 2-Stage thermostats are options.  Features on all models include Silencer II sound control, pressure switches to protect the compressor and enhanced diagnostics when using the Infinity control.

What are Carrier Performance/Comfort Air Conditioners?
There are 5 models in this second-tier of Carrier air conditioners offered by Total Air Solutions.  The primary difference from the Infinity models are that some of these are single-stage models and the average SEER rating is lower. Remember the higher the SEER rating the more energy efficient your unit will be.

  1. The 24ACB7 and the 24APA7 are very similar models. Both are 2-stage air conditioners with an 18 SEER efficiency rating.  The only difference is the Carrier Performance 24APA7 supports the Infinity control and the Performance 24ACB7 does not.
  2. The Performance 24ACC6 is a 16.5 SEER model that does support the Infinity controller while the Performance 24APA5 is a 16.5 SEER AC that uses the Edge or Comfort thermostats. They are both single-stage models.
  3. Finally, the Performance 24ACB3 is a single-stage model that offers 15 SEER performance and uses the Edge or Comfort thermostats.

Carrier Base Air Conditioners
The last are Carrier’s most affordable models that Total Air Solutions offers. They are good quality and are backed by the same warranty as the top 2 lines.  These models are both single-stage units.  They are the 16.5 SEER Carrier 24ABC6 and the 15 SEER Carrier 24ABB3.

Total Air Solutions chooses Carrier air conditioners because they are all Energy Star rated.  Each one is also covered by a 10-year parts limited warranty, showing the consistent quality throughout the lineup.
