Farmington heating and cooling manufacturing Carrier Corp. on Wednesday unveiled the latest changes to its Infinity 98 gas furnace line, providing for greater efficiency and noise reduction.
The line comes in three versions: 3.5-ton, 5-ton and 5.5-ton. The furnaces use special technology to constantly ramp up and slow down operations to adapt to a home's conditions, rather than the constant on/off of older furnaces.
The five-ton version of the Infinity 98 has the highest efficiency rating of 98.5 percent under the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency standard.
Carrier is a subsidiary under UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of Hartford-based United Technologies Corp.
