The Infinity® 98 furnace delivers precision comfort with Greenspeed intelligence. This is the most advanced Carrier® furnace ever made. Its unique design innovations achieve unprecedented efficiency and quiet. Greenspeed intelligence is created by pairing adaptable-speed technology with our Infinity control's intelligence. The unique, modulating gas valve of this unit, when managed by the Infinity control, allows it to literally adapt its output to the needs of the home. With tiny, 1% adjustments between 40 and 100% capacity, it gives the home only the amount of heating necessary.
The Performance 96 gas furnace is a two stage furnace, with a variable-speed blower motor and will run in low stage up to 90% of the time. Longer, low-stage run times give you better energy efficiency, better temperature control and increased comfort. It also assures you quieter performance.
Stages describe the different levels of heat output from a furnace. A two-stage furnace has high and low settings for different levels of demand, while a single model operates at full blast, whether it’s needed or not.
A modulating furnace does not burn a fixed amount of gas like a single or two-stage furnace. For example, the Carrier 59MN7 can adjust fuel utilization in 1% increments between 40% and 100% capacity, depending on what your home needs. This translates to lower fuel consumption and a higher level of comfort.
“AFUE” stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The AFUE rating reports how effectively a furnace converts fuel into heat for our homes. The higher the AFUE, the less money you'll spend on energy.
To earn the Energystar rating in Canada, furnaces must be equipped with an electronically commutated fan motor (ECM) and meet a 95% AFUE rating.
We wish we had a simple answer, but this is a complex question, and as much as we want to say Carrier or Amana, that wouldn’t be fair. The truth is all the big furnace brands make amazing products with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and strict testing procedures. Where some manufacturers fall short is with the barrier to entry to sell their products. If a brand does not have an aggressive vetting process, its products could end up in the hands of the wrong technician. In short, installation is everything, and you are best to focus on picking the right installers first and the brand second. However, if you are buying a furnace for the first time, we would suggest sticking with dealer-restricted brands that distribute their own products. In most cases, you can trust that manufacturers select firms that they are confident will do right by their brand.
Best Dealer Restricted Brands: 1. Daikin 2. Carrier 3. Trane 4. Lennox (Elite Series and above)
This is a tricky question. There is no easy way of knowing the best time to change your furnace, but here are a few things to consider:
In conclusion, we never ‘age shame’ a furnace, and there is no set age when a furnace needs to be replaced. However, it’s fair to say that any furnace over fifteen years old is ripe for replacement. As replacement parts become more expensive and harder to source, the value of repairing a furnace decreases.
The size of the furnace you need for your home depends on several factors, including the size of your home, the desired temperature of the home, the level of insulation in your home, and the efficiency of the furnace itself. Though not always accurate, the general rule of thumb is that you need between 30-40 BTU per square foot, and can be used to estimate during your research. It’s important to note that getting the right size furnace is crucial for efficient and effective heating. A furnace that’s too small for your home will have to work harder to heat your home, which can lead to higher energy bills and more wear and tear on the furnace. A furnace that’s too large for your home may cycle on and off too frequently, which can also lead to increased energy consumption and wear and tear.
The cost of installing a new furnace will depend on a few factors, including the size of your space, the furnace brand, and the material requirements, but that’s not the answer you’re looking for, and happily, we have data to help.
The average cost of installing forty furnaces in 2022 is $4,267. Keep in mind that this average includes all sorts of installations, from entry-level furnaces all the way up to fully modulating furnaces.
The type of furnace you should get depends on several factors, including your budget, your heating needs, and your energy efficiency goals. Here’s a breakdown of each type of furnace:
Single-stage furnace: A single-stage furnace has only one heat output setting, which means it runs at full capacity or is turned off. Single-stage furnaces are generally the most affordable option. Still, they can be less efficient than two-stage or variable-speed furnaces because they don’t offer as much precision in heating output.
Two-stage furnace: A two-stage furnace has two heat output settings: high and low. This allows the furnace to run at a lower output level when the heating demand is lower, which can help save energy and reduce wear and tear on the furnace. Two-stage furnaces are more expensive than single-stage furnaces, but they can be more energy-efficient and may offer greater comfort.
Variable-speed furnace: A variable-speed furnace has a modulating gas valve that can adjust the heating output in small increments based on the heating demand. This allows the furnace to run at a low output level for longer periods, which can increase energy efficiency and operate at lowers sound volumes. Variable-speed furnaces are the most expensive option, but they can offer the greatest energy savings and comfort.
Ultimately, the type of furnace you should choose depends on your specific needs and budget. A qualified professional can help you determine which type of furnace is best for your home and provide options based on your heating needs.
The amount of time it takes to install a new furnace can vary depending on several factors, including the type of furnace being installed and the complexity of the installation. Generally, a typical furnace installation can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours, but it could take longer in some cases.
In most cases, we match the manufacturer’s parts warranty with an equivalent labor warranty. For example, Carrier products have a standard ten-year parts warranty, and we match that with a ten-year labor warranty. This is our way of saying that we stand behind the products we install.
