When choosing the best heating or cooling unit for your home, energy efficiency is a large part of the equation. Not only does it figure heavily into calculating your eventual energy costs, but it’s also a key factor in reducing your environmental footprint. For those looking for the greenest, most eco-friendly option, knowing more about how your Carrier system impacts overall energy efficiency and savings will help determine what unit and options are best for you.
As a longtime industry leader in the technological advancements that continue to increase consumer energy savings, Carrier is proud to offer a variety of energy efficient units to meet any budget.

What’s more, Carrier heat pumps far exceed the government’s 7.7 minimum Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF), with one system boasting an HSPF as high as 13. And it’s not just our heat pumps and air conditioning units that stand out as a model of energy efficient operation. Carrier furnaces achieve extremely high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings (as high as 98%), increasing your fuel savings and the efficiency of your entire heating system.
