Carrier Greenspeed Heat Pump Receives Excellence in Design Award from appliance DESIGN Magazine

Carrier recently received a silver-level “Excellence in Design” award from appliance DESIGN magazine for its Carrier® Infinity® 20 heat pump with Greenspeed™ intelligence. This year marks the 25th year for the publication’s “Excellence in Design” awards. Products from 10 industry categories were evaluated, and the appliance DESIGN panel of judges selected the Carrier Infinity heat pump based on its innovation, simplicity, functionality, and other considerations, including optimized capabilities, environmental footprint and energy and cost savings.

Introduced in 2011, the Infinity heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence is the highest heating efficiency ducted, air source heat pump on the market with a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) efficiency rating up to 13. The Infinity heat pump delivers up to 69 percent higher heating efficiency in… (read full story)

Carrier Introduces Compact Performance Air Purifier

Carrier, the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, introduces its new Performance™ series air purifier, in a more compact size. Nearly half the width of existing air purifiers and comparable in price to traditional electronic air cleaners on the market, the Performance series air purifier provides cleaner, healthier indoor air.

Based on the popular Infinity® air purifier platform with Captures & Kills™ technology introduced in 2006, the Performance air purifier is significantly smaller in size, with a narrow cabinet of only 7 ¼ inches wide and an air filter…(read full story)


World War II Carrier Weathermaker

While taking a recent tour of the decommissioned USS Yorktown Naval aircraft carrier (circa 1943), my observant spouse spotted this original Carrier Weathermaker unit in the mess hall on the ship.  We then noticed several others beautifully preserved as part of the museum that this ship has become since 1975.  I made her take a picture for you all (and yes her eyes rolled when I asked).  We also saw this Carrier recip compressor down in the mechanical room.  It is an impressive ship and museum so if you happened to be in the Charleston, SC area stop for a tour.

If you are interested in more information about Carrier’s WW-II history and ship air-conditioning, you can read about both in the new book called Weathermakers to the World or visit

New 36IB Induction Beam from Carrier Provides Increased Energy Performance

Carrier introduces a new 36IB induction beam system, designed to provide increased energy performance. The efficient design of the 36IB units enables increased heating and cooling capacities. It also requires smaller volumes of ducted air, enabling fan power reductions for the central air handling equipment, which is only needed for building ventilation and not for heating and cooling.

“Induction beam technology was invented by Dr. Willis Carrier in the early 1930s and has been used in Northern Europe’s active chilled beams for decades. However, European chilled beams were designed for sensible cooling only and require precise building and
