The Carrier Infinity 58MVC 80K and 100K BTU furnance are approved matches for the 5 ton heat pump you are considering. You should discuss with your contractor as to why he is recommending using a...
The Carrier equipment has at least a 5 year parts warranty, and if it was properly registered it should be extended to a 10 year parts warranty. Check the documentation.
The required repair should...
According to the Carrier 2011 Spring rebate matrix, this combination qualified for a $75 rebate. You must also purchase a Carrier branded thermostat. I am pretty confident the same rebate amounts...

I find a 40% humidity level to be comfortable in the summer.
Don't good too low on the cooling humidity level. The Infinity controller will over cool up to three degrees in attempt to achieve the...

You can set the heating and cooling temperatures separately, but the themostat has a heat/cool deadband feature. By default it is set to two (2) degrees F. If you try to make the heating and...

I am a little confused. First you say you need to replace the whole system except the furnace. Then in a later post you say you bought a new Rheem condenser and it is giving you problems. Now after...
If you want to control the humidity in the house, you need to keep the windows closed. I grew up with having no air conditioning and windows open all the time. It always seemed strange to me to have...
Post the complete model numbers and sizes of the Rheem and Carrier equipment. Include the thermostats and details on filter configuration. This will help posters give more informed opinions.

I find it very strange someone would build a house which has natural gas and then use electrical resistance for heating. Do your homework on how to get a gas line to where a furance can be installed.

I am not a professional. I am a homeowner who has Carrier Infinity furnaces and AC condensers.
I also did not see a significant decrease in energy usage going from my 8 SEER 25 year old...
I am trying to understand the size of the house. Can you explain the two sizes you stated?

I am not a professional, but I do own Carrier furnaces and condensers. In my opinion as a homeowner, I think Carrier manufacturers a good product in their Performance and Infinity product...

Are you still looking for opinions on these Carrier models?

I was able to derive the formula. I understand where it comes from.
If you want to me more precise use:
C = current X 2654 / voltage
But your value is close enough.
By leakage I meant...

I am curious the about current X 2650/voltage forumula.
Can someone explain how this is derived? Does the answer yield the answer the value of the capacitor in microfarads?
What is the...

Five years ago this month I bought a Sears Kenmore 70 pint dehumidifer with the 5 year warranty. Sears has given me two replacements. I picked up the second replacement in June. I just extended the...
Why did the apartment manager need to "recalibrate" your thermostat? Did you witness how this was done?
Some digital thermostats have the ability to adjust the temperature reading. It sounds like...

It may have cost a little less, but not enough to loose sleep over it.
Here is a thought to make you feel a little better. If you had done the installation four years ago, you probably would have...
Your condenser and duct work may be undersized. Are 100+ degree temperatures common for your area? If you post your approximate location, one of the Pros can look up the summer design temperature for...

A difference of 3dba represents twice the energy level. However the human ear does not preceive it as twice as loud. My condensers are rated at 69-70dba. They don't seem loud, when I stand next to...

RF interference is possible, but I think it is unlikley. The equipment creating the RF interference would have to be physically near the Infinitity communicating equipment and wiring in order to pick...

The tech stated "run capacitor capacitance was low and needed to be replaced". But the capacitor was not removed a measured. He somehow did a calculation by measuring the AC current and voltage and...

This statement does not make sense. Can you explain what it means?

If you have the funds, I recommend you start planning on replacing the AC in the fall. Start doing the research now and begin interviewing HVAC contractors so you will be in a position to do this...

If the the upstairs unit had no preformance problem for the first four years, then you can safely assume it is properly sized. There was no need for the added expense of increasing the condenser to...
