New Carrier® Performance™ 92 Gas Furnace Provides Both Energy and Electrical Efficiency
July 22, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., U.S.
Carrier announces the release of the Performance 92 59SP2A condensing gas furnace with up to 92.1% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The Performance 92 gas furnace is powered by an electronically commutated motor (ECM) multiple-speed blower motor for efficient operation all year long in heating, cooling and continuous fan operation. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The Performance 92 features four-way multipoise installation flexibility, and is available in eight model sizes. The units can be vented for direct vent/two-pipe, ventilated combustion air, or single-pipe applications. All units meet California Air Quality Management District emission requirements, are design certified in Canada, and are certified for mobile/manufactured home use. In addition, these units meet ENERGY STAR® regional standards in southern states.
The furnace control board allows the system to connect with a Performance™ series Edge® programmable thermostat for responsive operation and the Carrier SmartEvap™ technology moisture-control function, which can lower the humidity level in the home by nearly 10 percent when paired with a compatible condensing unit. By turning off the blower motor for a predetermined amount of time immediately following a dehumidification cycle, SmartEvap technology ensures that moisture removed from the home during the dehumidification cycle remains out of the home by allowing any condensation to drip from the indoor evaporator coil instead of reintroducing that condensation right back into the home.
“The new Performance 92 gas furnaces are an ideal addition to Carrier’s mid-tier offerings,” said Tom Archer, senior product manager, Carrier. “These units can achieve an impressive 92.1% AFUE rating and the ECM blower motors run quietly and efficiently, making them a welcome entry-point into the Performance line. Couple that with meeting regional ENERGY STAR ratings, and this latest furnace line presents significant benefits to the homeowner.”
The Performance 92 is part of the latest generation of condensing furnaces that are easier to install than previous generations, allowing for greater flexibility to the homeowner. Enhanced indoor air quality in the home is made simpler with an optional media filter cabinet. When installed as part of the system, this cabinet allows for the easy and convenient addition of a Carrier high-efficiency air filter.
