Choosing the right brand of air conditioners can be daunting, especially when there are so many well-known brands on the market. Carrier is a reputable air conditioner brand sold in North America.

If you are currently in the market for a new A/C, Carrier air conditioners would be a great addition to your home’s cooling system.

  • Air Conditioners in Barrie, ON Features- There are eight varieties of Carrier air conditioners available in three categories: Elite Series, Merit Series, and the Dave Carrier Signature Collection. Six of the eight units (the other two found in the Merit Series) are EnergyStar rated and range from 14 SEER to 20.5 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio), which can save you hundreds of dollars each year compared to older air conditioners.
  • Types- Carrier offers nine packaged (sometimes referred to as dual-pack) units, which are installed outside of the home.
