Performance™ Series Air Conditioners TM Energy-Efficient Air Conditioners with up to 16.5 SEER Innovation and the Environment Leaders in Technology Over 100 years ago, a humble but determined engineer solved one of mankind’s most elusive challenges by controlling the indoor environment. A leading engineer of his day, Dr. Willis Carrier would file more than 80 patents over the course of his career. His genius would enable incredible advancements in health care, manufacturing processes, food preservation, art and historical conservation, indoor comfort and much more. Carrier’s foresight changed the world forever and paved the way for over a century of once-impossible innovations. Yet in addition to being an accomplished inventor, he was also an avid outdoorsman. Carrier recognized the power and beauty of the natural environment. This appreciation of our world and its resources continues to guide Carrier Corporation today. We will never rest on our accomplishments, but instead consistently look for ways to improve our products, our environment and our world. The Carrier ® Performance™ series air conditioners offer proof of this commitment by delivering energy-saving comfort in the environment that matters most – your home. 3 4 4 3 2 2 1 What Efficiency Means to You Air conditioners are powered by electricity. You can compare efficiencies of different air conditioner models by checking the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, available through your Carrier dealer or manufacturer web sites. Using these ratings is a lot like miles per gallon for your car – the higher the number, the more efficient the product and the greater potential for savings. Actual air conditioner performance will vary depending on your home, comfort preferences and more. The Performance series air conditioners offer efficiencies up to 16.5 SEER to provide the comfort you deserve and energy savings you can appreciate. UP TO 16.5 SEER RATING As an ENERGY STAR ® partner, Carrier Corporation has determined that the Performance series air conditioners meet ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency. Proper sizing and installation of equipment is critical to achieve optimal performance. Split system air conditioners and heat pumps must be matched with appropriate coil components to meet ENERGY STAR criteria. Ask your dealer for details or visit www.energystar.gov. 1 Proven Performance The Performance™ series air conditioners with scroll compressor technology deliver both comfort and reliability.
