Are you in the market for a new air conditioner? Are you looking for that perfect balance between budget and performance? Well, let me introduce you to the Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner. In this video, we’ll go over its benefits and see who should consider this system for their home.

Hi, my name is Brad from Fire & Ice. Over the years, we have helped thousands of Central Ohio homeowners choose the right HVAC system that will meet their individual heating and cooling needs. When it comes to cooling, a common solution is the Carrier 24APB6 or better known as the  Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner. In this video, we’ll look at its features and their benefits, review its efficiency rating, see who is and isn’t a good fit for this system, and go over its cost. By the end of this video, you’ll know if the Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner is right for you.

What are the features of the Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner?

Let’s get started and see what the Carrier Performance 16 has to offer in terms of features. First up is its single-stage compressor. Every time it kicks on, it uses 100% of its total capacity. The primary benefit of this technology is you’ll have consistent and reliable cooling when you need it most.

It’s also built to last and comes equipped with WeatherArmor Ultra protection, which includes a galvanized steel cabinet and coil guard that have been painted to protect against damage and the elements.

Lastly is the peace of mind with its ten-year limited parts warranty, and knowing its efficiency is Energy Star rated. A program put in place by the EPA to promote energy efficiency.

What is the efficiency rating of the Carrier Performance 16?

Air conditioners, like the Carrier Performance 16, have their efficiency rated by a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER rating. And it’s kind of like the miles per gallon in your car, and it's a measure of the energy used during an average cooling season. Most air conditioners on the market are rated between 14 and 22 SEER. The Carrier Performance 16 boasts an efficiency rating of up to 17.

Who is Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner a good fit for?

The Carrier Performance5 16 air conditioner is ideal for homeowners looking to boost their energy efficiency without spending an arm and a leg. This straightforward air conditioner will continue to provide consistent, reliable cooling day and night. Not to mention it’s likely going to help lower your energy bills thanks to its higher SEER rating, especially if you’re coming from an older air conditioner with a much lower efficiency rating. 

However, if you suffer from indoor comfort concerns like uneven temperatures between floors or hot and cold spots, you’ll likely want to consider other air conditioners with more advanced features. And it should be noted that it’s not the quietest at 72 decibels. For comparison, your average conversation is between 60 and 70 decibels. Fortunately, the Carrier Performance 16 does come with a compressor sound blanket to try and keep the operation noise down.

How much does Carrier Performance 16 heat pump cost?

Now for the final question, how much does it cost? To have the Carrier Performance 16 air conditioner installed in your home, expect to pay between $5,700 and $8,100. At Fire & Ice, all of our estimates include the price of equipment, labor, and any additional fees. For comparison, new air conditioner installation costs between $5,000 and $15,000.

Believe it or not, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for HVAC, and several factors can impact the price. Such as the air conditioner’s capacity, the size of your home, additional indoor air quality products, and any modifications needed during installation.
