The Real World Carrier Infinity Furnace Reviews
We have (2) Infinity systems in our own home, and have sold hundreds to others! Plain and simple, if you are going to decide to take the plunge for one of the highest quality systems on the market, don’t do it halfway! As we have repeatedly stated here and at on other HVAC Forums, the Carrier Infinity System is designed to be a total solution, not a piecemeal solution.
In other words – choosing only the Infinity furnace, or only the air conditioner, will not allow you to reap the full benefits of the Carrier Infinity System! If you decide to get a free carrier quote, make sure the contractor understands that you want to install at minimum:
- Carrier Infinity Gas Furnace
- Infinity Air Conditioner or Heat Pump
- Infinity Control Thermostat
There are other components to the infinity system, but as long as you have the major equipment in place to begin with, you can add the others later with very little hassle!
Cost of a Carrier Infinity Furnace
The price you pay for a Carrier infinity Furnace is truly going to vary, based on the HVAC Contractor you are working with, their own wholesale pricing levels from Carrier and of course, the variable they will charge you to install the furnace. By itself, wholesale Carrier Infinity Furnaces cost approximately $1100 for a 40k btu furnace, to more than $1800 for a 120k btu infinity gas furnace.
Many people check on eBay for a Carrier furnace, but you need to beware that Carrier has told us directly, they DO NOT warranty any systems bought on the Internet! (They do allow them to continue to be sold though)
