    We left the reviews neutral on this furnace since we don’t actually own one yet. We got a price quote from our heating guy and they are pretty pricey to say the least. If you have one, please leave a review for us to read. Im sure many people are looking for reviews of these infinity 98 furnaces.

    Had this infinity 98 furnace and matching infinity 2-ton 2-stage ac installed in sept.-2011, only used the ac 3 weeks and worked great, I have used the heat for a month now and my first gas bill was $43 thats only $15 more than I pay for the hot water and stove. I used to pay $400 a month to run my gas steam boiler so if I can stay under $200 a month that would be great. The furnace is quiet cant even hear it run on low setting. Very pricey install , but very intuitive control on the infinity controller, has many different settings and adjustments.The furnace seems to a gas miser so far the gas meter barely moves with the furnace running on low stage.

    Jim – Thanks for the great review of this Carrier Infinity 98. I’m sure you’ll find over time that the cost of running the unit will pay off the pricey install. Carrier makes some great products and this new Infinity unit is a welcome addition to their lineup for sure.

    Thanks again, Mark

      Thanks Mark, I have only had this infinity 98 furnace and a/c since sept. 2011, the company that installed it total temp. control, from Wakefield, MA, said this would be my best choice for going green, and saving some green in the long haul. I wanted reliable long lasting equipment and carrier had the best warranty and features. A reliable installer and reliable equipment is the key to longevity in these systems, after researching many brands and quotes from a dozen contractors I felt this was the way to go, since I had no ductwork, and switching from steam, it was a very involved installation, but the contactor delivered a very nice install. Its great to find a contractor willing to put a new system in a very old home and make it look like its been there from the beginning. I hope this helps a few furnace and a/c shoppers and good luck with your reviews!

    I just had this furnace installed. The cost from A Johnson in Saratoga was $4,300 installed. I was able to finance it through the New York State, NYSERDA, Green Home – Green Jobs program. The monthly cost is $30.00 per month over 15 years at 3.9with a 10rebate that included having my duct work insulated to achieve the monthly savings in energy that should offset the cost of the furnace. Since my house if well built and insulated I may fall under the amount but I needed a new furnace and to get the credit I had to reach a high level of energy savings to qualify. The fact that this furnace is used as the one to reach that level of energy saving it a great testimony. The cheapest furnace install would have been a 2 stage 90model for around $3,400. So far the furnace works great. At the lower speeds you can not hear it, it is very quiet and runs smoothly. It has been very cold 3 degrees here in upstate NY and when it moves up to full blast there is some noise as it pushes to satisfy the heating demand. It then modulates down once it has met the demand and is almost silent again. This furnace fan runs constantly and a very low speed and circulated the air. I have noticed that the temperature stays constant and the we no longer have periods when the house feels cold or too hot.
    With the older single stage furnace it was on or off and we had some rooms that over heated and then would be cold. We have a single thermostat in the hall so that was the way it worked.
    So far we are very happy with the new furnace.

    Installed the infinity in a 3500+ sq ft house multi-level home. Added 3 zone controls and combined cold air returns. When not cycling all zones opened and blower ran on low speed. The first thing I noticed is my cold basement became with 1 degree of the upper level both summer and winter. My heating bill dropped in less then half even after added a 2048 sq ft addition. The only issue I ever had with the unit was within the first week after install it errored out because the PVC exhaust tubing was not installed properly and it fill with water instead of draining. I would highly recommend this furnace, even though it is a little pricey…it will pay for itself. Mark
