WEATHERMAKER® 8000VS VARIABLE SPEED – 58UHV & 58UXV

WEATHERMAKER® 8000VS VARIABLE SPEED – 58UHV & 58UXV
WITH ComfortHeat™ TECHNOLOGY
IDEAL INDOOR WEATHER WITH 80% AFUE
The Carrier WeatherMaker
8000VS delivers ideal indoor
weather. At Carrier, we understand that
every home is different and every family
has different comfort needs. That’s why we
designed the WeatherMaker 8000VS furnace with ComfortHeat™ Technology to
respond to your precise indoor weather
demands. Complete with variable speed
technology, the WeatherMaker 8000VS
furnace is an excellent choice for qualityconscious homeowners.
The WeatherMaker 8000VS gas furnace
with ComfortHeat™ Technology offers
maximum comfort and efficiency. Carrier’s
ComfortHeat™ Technology delivers
remarkable comfort by providing longer,
smoother and quieter heating cycles for a
more consistent indoor temperature. Due
to the different stages of heating, this gas
furnace helps eliminate uncomfortable
temperature swings as well as the hot and
cold drafts caused by the on and off
cycling of an ordinary furnace. The slower
blower speeds help reduce operational noise
and minimize electrical use so you can
enjoy consistent, quiet, energy-efficient
indoor weather throughout every season.

ComfortHeat™
Technology
To match the sound generated by one ordinary 80% gas furnace,
you would have to install approximately four Carrier WeatherMaker
8000VS gas furnaces in your home. During the cooling mode, when
the furnace fan is being used as an air handler, it would take up to
ten WeatherMaker 8000VS gas furnaces to equal the sound of just
one ordinary furnace. The ultra quiet operation of the Carrier
WeatherMaker 8000VS furnace offers enhanced year-round comfort.

MOISTURE REMOVAL (gallons/hour)
With its wide range of speeds
and patented smart electronics,
this self-adjusting furnace is
designed to deliver customized
comfort. Carrier’s exclusive smart
control board constantly monitors and
adjusts furnace operation, controlling
your indoor weather so you don’t have
to. This unique microprocessor also
provides a memory of past heating
cycles and automatically determines
how the least amount of energy can
generate the highest level of comfort.
The WeatherMaker® 8000VS gas
furnace can even respond to
increases in the humidity
levels as part of a cooling
system. All you have to
do is choose a Carrier

Costs in this table are based on a 50,000 Btuh design heating requirement
using an average fuel rate of $0.626 per therm and a nominal 3-ton air
conditioner using an average electric rate of $0.0867 per kilowatt-hour.
* A variable speed furnace improves air conditioning efficiency, allowing a
12.0 SEER system to operate as efficiently as a 13.0 SEER system due to
the electrical efficiency.
The above calculations are approximations. A more thorough analysis should
be done by your dealer.
To use this table:
1. Determine the AFUE/SEER of your current system.
2. From the map determine the zone you live in, enter the table and
cross reference your zone with the AFUE/SEER of your current system to determine your approximate annual heating/cooling costs.
3. Compare your annual heating/cooling cost to that of a new system
with a higher AFUE/SEER.
4. The difference of these two numbers is your estimated annual cost
savings.
5. Heating and cooling costs include cycled fan operation. Fan costs
are for fans set in ON position to run continuously. Subtract fan cost
from total cost if unit is not set up to run continuously.
