So quiet

Our Carrier heat pump system was so quiet. The only way we knew it was on was the cool air filling the room. Although the Carrier system is more costly than other systems, it makes up the cost with efficiency. Our electric bill came down drastically after replacing our dinosaur.

Built a new home four years ago. Installed 3 carrier units. Have had no problems but I should not have had any in that short of time. The AC installer did an outstanding job. Home heats and cools evenly all year.

We recently installed a Carrier split type inverter gold series air conditioner and we did not regret anything about it. Yes, it cost us more than buying a regular window type air conditioner but because this Carrier split type has the inverter technology, it is more energy efficient therefore lower electric bills for us. It also cools the room faster and it is very quiet. You don’t even know it’s already on because it doesn’t create one sound. It also comes with a remote control that is very easy to use. And true enough, we’ve noticed that our electric bills have become lower the past few months that we’ve started using this Carrier split type air conditioner.
