Introducing the New Carrier® Infinity® 26 Air Conditioner and Infinity® 24 Heat Pump with Greenspeed® Intelligence

New products offer market-leading efficiency, quiet operation and more!

INDIANAPOLIS – Carrier, the company founded by the inventor of modern air conditioning, recently launched two new flagship products – the Infinity 26 air conditioner (Model 24VNA6) and Infinity 24 heat pump (Model 25VNA4) with Greenspeed Intelligence. These products are available just in time for cooling season and boast a number of industry-leading features and numerous innovations with 12 patents pending. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

For most sizes, the Infinity 26 offers the highest ratings for a ducted system at up to 26.0 SEER and 16.5 EER; while the Infinity 24 heat pump offers the highest in-class ratings at up to 24.0 SEER, 15.0 EER and 13.0 HSPF.1 Furthermore, both the Infinity 26 and Infinity 24 tout market-leading quiet operation with sound output as low as 51 dB.

Both units feature a variable-speed capacity operating range down to 25% in 1% increments and provides high-ambient cooling operation with full power up to 125º F. The Infinity 24 also offers heating operation to minus 15 F. Plus, the Infinity 24 is the only ducted product on the market with a variable-speed, 5-ton heat pump to achieve 13.0 EER, which features the addition of vapor-injection technology.2 The Infinity 26 and Infinity 24 also include enhanced dehumidification and can remove up to 400% more moisture than a single-stage system.3

The Infinity 26 and Infinity 24 offer a number of benefits for technicians as well. Bluetooth® technology is available on the outdoor unit, making it unnecessary to access outdoor unit diagnostic information inside the home. The equipment is compatible with a service app for technicians that includes the fault history of the unit, system parameters and interactive fault trees. Over-the-air software updates are available and technicians can assess over 130 diagnostic points. Plus, the equipment features two-wire installation, is self-configuring, Infinity® Zoning System-capable and installations can use up to 250 equivalent feet of refrigerant line length. Carrier also offers virtual reality, 3D simulation training, as well as online troubleshooting and training modules.

“We’re proud to introduce the Infinity 26 and Infinity 24 with Greenspeed Intelligence as these products truly showcase Carrier innovation and offer a number of industry-leading advantages,” said Todd Nolte, senior director, product and brand marketing, HVAC-Residential, Carrier. “We’re confident that homeowners will appreciate the features and benefits that are realized in our most ambitious development project to date. We’re also pleased to introduce enhanced installation and serviceability to our dealers, as we know that these improvements will make their lives easier.”

In addition, an Infinity® air purifier will be included with the purchase of every Infinity 26 and 24.4 The Infinity air purifier works silently in-line with the HVAC system and can improve indoor air quality. It uses Captures & Kills™ technology to trap up to 95% of particles5, then uses an electrical charge to kill or inactivate up to 99% of germs and viruses6. With every cycle of air that passes through this patented air purifying system, pollen, animal dander, bacteria and other pollutants are trapped and held tightly to the filter. An electrical charge then bursts the cell walls of pathogens it comes in contact with.
