Has your furnace unexpectedly gone out on you? If not, you’re one of the lucky ones. However, if it has gone out when you least expected it, think back to that time. Was the HVAC company you picked responsive? Did they arrive on time? Were you happy with the service they provided? 

That said, you probably ended up on this article because you Google searched “HVAC Columbus Ohio” or “heating and cooling Columbus Ohio.” That's because Fire and Ice has been a locally trusted HVAC contractor for 20 years in Columbus, Ohio, and has helped thousands of homeowners find the perfect system without breaking the bank.

This article will cover various aspects of the Carrier Performance (58TO0) Gas Furnace, encompassing its benefits, features, compatible system/accessories, who is and isn't a good fit for this unit, the cost, and the steps to invest in a new furnace through Fire & Ice HVAC.

Let's dive in!

What are the Benefits and Features of the Carrier Performance (58TP0) Gas Furnace?

The (58TP0) Gas Furnace by Carrier is engineered as a mid-range HVAC system. It offers homeowners reliable comfort and peace of mind throughout the year. Below are several benefits and features of this unit.

Energy Savings

The Carrier Performace 58TP0 boasts an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of 80%. An AFUE calculates the furnace’s overall efficiency and uses percentages (up to 100%) to signify a furnace's usable heat. Most HVAC professionals compare a system's AFUE to a car's MPH.

This unit is also equipped with Carrier’s Comfort Heat Technology® feature, which estimates the amount of heat your home needs based on older cycles. This feature has several benefits: quiet performance, consistent comfort, and better energy efficiency with fewer temperature swings.  

Additionally, this unit has a two-stage gas valve, which controls its heating capacity. Thus, it can operate in either high or low settings. Low-stage heating typically caters to milder, less severe conditions, while high-stage heating tackles colder temperatures.

It also has a variable speed constant torque ECM blower motor, which helps with humidity and provides the right amount of airflow to keep up with your temperature needs. In fact, this furnace uses Carriers' patented SmartEvap™  to help with comfort and humidity management.  

Reliability & Durability

When it comes to the reliability and durability of this unit, Carrier has put a lot of time, effort, and money toward ensuring the 58TP0 provides exactly what homeowners ( like yourself) want and need.

PowerHeat™ Hot Surface Ignition—This is a new feature on some of Carriers' most popular gas furnace models. It is one of the most robust and durable ignition systems in the current HVAC market. 

When you invest in a home comfort system with PowerHeat™, it removes the need for a pilot light, lowering your home's gas usage and resulting in lower utility bills. 


Limited Warranty—This unit is covered under two warranties: a 10-year parts warranty and a 20-year heat exchanger warranty. 

Bear in mind that this warranty does not cover labor costs, and the new HVAC system must be registered on Carrier’s website within 90 days after installation. Furthermore, the warranty is exclusive to the unit's original owner, and you must have yearly preventative maintenance performed on your system to qualify.

Compatible Systems & Accessories

Knowing the compatible systems is important when searching for a new piece of HVAC equipment. Luckily, Carrier has a whole line dedicated to the Performance Series equipment, including heat pumps, air conditioners, thermostats, and zoning systems. Each of these can be installed in conjunction or separately with the 58TP0. 

The Carrier Performance 58TP0 Gas Furnace is also compatible with several HVAC accessories, including but not limited to the:

Is the Carrier (58TP0) Gas Furnace the Right Fit For You?

While we’d like to say that all HVAC systems are the same, that is not true in the heating and cooling world. In fact, there are certain types of homes and homeowners who would be a good fit for this unit, as well as those who wouldn't. Let's explore which homeowners would be well-suited for this unit, as well as those who might not find it a good fit.

A Good Fit 

This HVAC unit would be a good fit for a homeowner who plans to stay in their home for the next 10-15 years. As a mid-tier HVAC system, it is also a good fit for homeowners who don’t want to pay an arm and a leg but still want a reliable unit. 

This unit is also good for homeowners who have humidity concerns. The two-stage gas valve allows your system only to use the heat it needs when needed, resulting in a constant temperature throughout your home. Since it does not use all of your gas 100% of the time, this saves you time, energy, and, most importantly, money. 

A Bad Fit

On the flip side, this unit would be a bad fit for someone who just wants a cheap system to get them through the seasons or if you’re not planning to stay in your home long term. If this is the case, you may not get a return on your investment and lose money in the long run.

Also, if you notice that your home's temperature fluctuates severely (typically more than 10 degrees), you may have a zoning problem. Inconsistent temperatures usually happen in split-level homes over 2000 SQ FT. If this is the case for your home, you should invest in the next size up, such as the Carrier Infinity 80 (58TN0).

How Much Does the Carrier Performance (58TP0) Gas Furnace Cost?

The range is between $5,500- $7,500. This price includes installation and related fees. However, it does not include ductwork ventilation/modification or indoor air quality add-ons.
