seer-18 The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER is a rating that shows the potential cooling efficiency of an air conditioner or heat pump. A higher number is better.
HSPF 11 The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor or HSPF is a rating that shows the potential heating efficiency of a heat pump. A higher number is better.
cools Cools the air. May be either a heat pump or an air conditioner.
heats Heats your indoor environment, using natural gas, oil, propane or electric power.
hybridheat This product is compatible as part of a dual-fuel system that heats using an electric heat pump until the heating power of a gas or oil furnace is needed.

Overview

The Infinity 18VS heat pump is different in a lot of ways. It offers variable-speed compression that can step down in 5 stages to as low as 25% of its capacity. That's huge from a comfort perspective. The ability to run in lower speeds most of the time makes it quieter and more adept at removing humidity in the summer. It's also significantly better than a 2-stage unit at keeping temperatures even. Plus, those lower speeds are the sweet spot for the unit's best efficiency levels and for getting the most benefit out of other systems you might have like an air purifier because of more constant air flow through the system.

And, it's seldom you can upgrade your system a component at a time. Most often, the leap to higher efficiency and better comfort via a communicating system for that home you love, can mean you have to deal with the cost of a whole system even though only your outdoor cooling unit has called it quits. The Infinity 18VS could change that for you. Your Carrier® expert can help you determine if it can work with your existing indoor unit so you can upgrade in steps.
