Very Reliable

The system has been very reliable with no problems. I installed a completely new Carrier system 6 yrs ago along with ductwork. My AC bill dropped by $50 dollars a month in the summertime with carrier. I also love the 10yr warranty that came with the system.

I have had a Carrier air conditioner for over 35 years. I have added onto my house 25 years ago and increased my size by two good sized rooms. Still with the same size air conditioner. The only problem I’ve had was replacing fan motor about 6 years ago. The old unit still runs and cools and am quite pleased with its reliability. I am now at a point to see how long it will last. Have read some bad reviews of “modern” carriers and wanting to see if other homeowners have had same great service with newer models and would recommend a carrier again. Thanks.

This is a 29 year old unit that still works good by providing cool air when needed. It gets serviced about once a year at minimum cost so far, however my a/c man did say that it will need to be converted over to the newer coolant this coming year.
