Carrier Providing the Comfort for 'New American Home' 2014 at IBS

Feb. 4, 2014
The New American Home 2014 features complete Carrier home comfort systems, including the Infinity 98 gas furnace with Greenspeed intelligence.

Several high-efficiency Carrier residential products will be on display when The New American Home (TNAH) 2014, the official showcase house of the International Builders’ Show (IBS), opens this week in Henderson, NV.

David Meyers, vice president of sales and distribution for Carrier's residential & light commercial systems, says this is a great opportunity for Carrier and for home builders attending the show.

“We’re proud to be a part of The New American Home 2014,” says Meyers. “Being able to showcase Carrier products in an actual home allows our equipment to speak for itself while being on display for the some of the country’s leading builders.”

TNAH is built annually in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders(NAHB) International Builders’ Show, which takes place Feb. 4-6 in Las Vegas. The show is designed to showcase innovative construction technologies and the latest building products. TNAH 2014 features complete Carrier home comfort systems, including the Infinity 98 gas furnace with Greenspeed intelligence, available with up to 98.5% annual fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), and the Infinity 20 adaptable-speed heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence, available with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) up to 20.5 and a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) up to 13. The Infinity 98 gas furnace is up to 26%  more efficient than today’s minimum efficiency standard of 78% AFUE. The Infinity 20 heat pump is reportedly up to 69% more efficient than the minimum efficiency standard of 7.7 HSPF.

The systems will be controlled by the Infinity Touch Control, which combines with the Infinity 98 gas furnace and Infinity 20 heat pump to create the Infinity Hybrid Heat system with Greenspeed intelligence.

TNAH will also include the multi-split ductless Carrier Performance Series Heat Pump System, which can have as many as five air-handling units for five zones or rooms attached to one outdoor unit.
