In Depth Review
Infinity 24ANB1 Product Specifications:
SEER: Up to 21
ENERGY STAR® certified: Yes
Decibel rating: As low as 65
Tonnage: 2 to 5 tonnes
Two-stage compressor: Whereas many air conditioners come with a single-stage compressor that only has one stage of operation, the 24ANB1 is equipped with a more advanced two-stage compressor that allows for quieter operation, better temperature and humidity control, and improved energy performance.
Technological compatibilities: The 24ANB1 is compatible with the IdealHumidity System that offers superior humidity control independent of your cooling system. It can also be controlled with the Infinity Touch Control smart thermostat, which allows you to set different cooling zones, manage your system remotely, and manage energy performance.
Improves air quality: Many features in the 24ANB1 make for cleaner air inside your home, including an Air Cleaner purifier, a built-in ventilator, and a UV lamp for the evaporator coil that prevents the growth of contaminants.
Other Key Features

Carrier provides standard five-year limited parts and compressor warranties for all their air conditioners, and 10-year limited warranties for units that are registered within 90 days of installation. And if you're interested in additional coverage, they also sell a separate labour warranty for the 24ANB1.
Comparable Models by Carrier
Model Comparison by Price: Infinity 24ANB1 versus Performance 24ACC6
The Infinity 24ANB1 is one of Carrier’s premium air conditioners and one of the most expensive in their line. By comparison, the mid-range Performance 24ACC6 costs roughly $2,000 less than the premium Infinity 24ANB1, but it only has a single-stage compressor and a SEER rating of 16, so the mid-range model won’t save you as much on your monthly and annual energy bills.
Model Comparison by Features: Infinity 24ANB1 versus Infinity 24ANB7**C
Both the Infinity 24ANB1 and 24ANB7**C are premium models from Carrier, but they each have a significant benefit that the other doesn’t. With the 24ANB1, the chief advantage is the high SEER rating, which translates to better energy use and lower power bills during the cooling season. On the other hand, the 24ANB7**C offers improved durability in coastal climates, which makes it an ideal model for anybody who lives within 20 kilometres of the ocean.
Model Comparison by Tier: Infinity 24ANB1 versus Infinity 24VNA0
The only air conditioner that competes with the Infinity 24ANB1 in terms of overall features, specifications, and SEER rating is the Infinity 24VNA0, which is their latest top-of-the-line cooling system. This model is the only one in Carrier’s line equipped with Greenspeed Intelligence, which enables this air conditioner to provide unparalleled efficiency, cooling capacity, and quiet operation. It also comes with an additional three-year labour warranty that the 24ANB1 doesn’t have.
