At Brody, we are always open with our clients and respectful of their budgets. Our goal isn’t to upsell every homeowner in LA County. Rather, we make no assumptions heading into an initial consultation. We work to understand your needs and recommend products that give you the best possible balance of home comfort and financial security.
We do work with customers to understand that the best decision for their budget, isn’t always the cheapest. Investing a few hundred dollars more upfront in a more effective system will lead to a notable reduction in your monthly energy bill. We provide our customers with a thorough comparative so that they can make the best decision for their home or business.
The Carrier Performance Series is Carrier’s second best air conditioning unit. While all Carrier customers can expect a quality product, it will provide a great balance between upfront cost and overall system performance and efficiency.
When you factor in how important noise is for your HVAC system, the first place you start is the placement of your system. If your unit is right next to a bedroom or heavily used living space, you’ll want to consider how much the whirring of a running HVAC system will impact your sleep or entertainment.
The Carrier Performance system has a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of 17. For reference, modern systems are designed with excellent efficiency. A rating of 14-16 is perfectly acceptable for a home. That being said, the higher the efficiency the more you save each month. For Los Angeles residents, this is more relevant than those that live in Texas where energy is extremely affordable.
Carrier is THE original heating and cooling manufacturer in the U.S. It holds itself to the highest standard in system performance. In terms of performance, especially in comparison to a more efficient system, there isn’t a notable difference. Customers can expect to get the same lifespan out of the Performance Series as they would with the Infinity Series (10-15 years).
The Infinity Series is the latest in high-performance HVAC technology. It carries an incredible SEERS rating of 21 and can sync with the Infinity Controller for ultimate control of your system’s performance and home’s comfort.
The noise emitted from an Infinity Series unit sounds like a conversation. As long as your home is properly insulated, this should not have a significant impact on your sleep or downtime.
Whichever series you feel is best for your home, noise can often be an indicator of an issue. If a system was installed properly, it’s more likely to run quietly and smoothly. A system can also be noisy if it needs a repair or routine cleaning and maintenance.
With a SEER rating 20% greater than the Performance Series, customers will more than pay for the difference in cost between the two systems within the first 10 years. The more expensive your energy is, the more this is the case. In Southern California, customers who purchase the Infinity Series, should have no issues making up the difference in cost if they choose to invest in the more expensive unit.
While all Carrier products are built with quality parts and advanced technology, investing in a higher efficiency system will certainly impact the way your system performs as a whole and its overall life-expectancy. While this may not be a major differentiator in comparison to the Performance Series, it should provide peace of mind that if you choose the “more expensive” unit, your investment is secure.
