Carrier 24ANB7 17 SEER AC Unit – Infinity Series

Two-stage compression, high-efficiency rating, and quiet-as-a-mouse operation all come along with the Carrier 17 Seer AC unit, part of Carrier’s Infinity Series.

The unit is efficient enough that most homes can be cooled and dehumidified without even having to kick in the unit’s second stage.

Carrier Performance Series Air Conditioners

If you live in the Southeastern or Southwestern US, you likely need a powerful and high-efficiency unit to keep your home cool, but those in other portions of the country don’t always need that type of power.

Despite not being Carrier’s most powerful line, the Performance series can rack up an impressive Season Energy Efficiency Ratio of up to 16, making this unit more efficient than many high-grade models from other air-conditioner manufacturers. The Performance Series is also Energy-Star rated.

Our Rating: 8 out of 10

The Comfort Series may not have all the bells and whistles of other Carrier series, but it is the perfect unit for those who don’t need the power that comes with the higher-level Carrier series.

The Comfort series are simple, efficient, and affordable. Despite being one of the more basic models, the Comfort Series has up to a 16 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) which still makes it one of the more efficient units on the market.

The Comfort series by Carrier are Energy-Star rated, use environmentally-safe Puron, and will knock down your utility bills. A great unit for those with smaller homes or who don’t need a lot of AC in their home.
