A Carrier Heat Pump Can Keep You Warm This Winter

winter When you are looking for a new heat pump for your Semmes-area home, you can rest assured that there is a Carrier model that fits the bill. Learn about four of Carrier’s highly-rated models, and see which would be a great choice for your home.

Infinity® 16 Heat Pump

One of the more hardworking Carrier heat pumps on the market, the Infinity 16 heat pump has great temperature and humidity control paired with a quiet design for effective yet unobtrusive heating and cooling. Some homeowners pair this heat pump with an Infinity furnace model to create a more energy-efficient heating system that offers better comfort and cost savings.

Infinity® 18VS Heat Pump

Unlike most other units, the Infinity 18VS heat pump has a variable-speed compressor that allows it to run in five stages instead of two. This feature helps the heat pump operate more smoothly, quietly, and efficiently in every season. Its temperature control capabilities mean it can keep your family comfortable with consistent temperatures year-round.

Infinity® 19 Heat Pump

The Infinity 19 heat pump offers excellent temperature and humidity control, so you will stay comfortable in any Alabama weather. This unit also features improved energy efficiency, with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 19 and a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) rating of 10.

Infinity® 20 Heat Pump with Greenspeed Intelligence

When you truly want to keep your family comfortable year-round, Greenspeed intelligence is the name of the game. Instead of a standard two-speed compressor, this unit also uses a variable-speed compressor to fine-tune climate control in any weather. This heat pump operates at about 40 percent capacity for most of the day, and it can quickly shift to 100 percent capacity to adapt to your family’s heating or cooling needs. This Infinity heat pump is also one of the most energy-efficient Carrier models, so you can keep warm without wasting energy. Looking for more information about the right heat pump for your home?

When You Need to Call a Professional for AC Care

When You Need to Call a Professional for AC Care

Your air conditioner works hard to keep you comfortable through the hot Alabama summers. It is sometimes easy to take your home comfort for granted, but proper and timely AC care will keep your system in top condition. Pay attention to signs that it’s time to call a professional. It could save you money on energy bills and extensive repairs, and prevent you from having to purchase a new unit.

For Regular Maintenance

Annual air conditioner maintenance is important for every system. If you have not yet scheduled an appointment it is it a good idea to do so now. This visit includes a thorough inspection and cleaning of the unit as well as tasks such as lubricating and tightening parts where required.

When Your Unit Won’t Cool

If your air conditioner isn’t cooling as effectively as usual, you should call a professional to diagnose the issue. Dirt within the system, leaky ducts, and leaking refrigerant are among the factors that can cause your air conditioner to stop cooling properly. A timely call to your HVAC professional will prevent these problems from becoming worse, or from creating other problems within the system.

When You Hear Something Strange

If your air conditioner is rattling, whirring, or making other unusual noises, you probably have a loose part inside. A professional can easily tighten screws, fans, and other parts of the system to silence this problem. A noisy air conditioner is not only distracting, but could be a sign of something potentially dangerous.

When Your Bills are Too High

If your utility bills are higher than usual, a tune-up could reveal possible reasons. Again, dirt within the system, or loose or damaged parts, will decrease your unit’s efficiency, forcing it to work harder to cool your home. Your HVAC specialist is trained to make accurate diagnoses and repair. It is also likely that a system upgrade might be necessary. Air Specialty has well-qualified technicians who can make the right recommendations based on your unique circumstances.
