The 24ANB7 is a two-stage air conditioner, and this means the unit operates at a lower speed most of the time, and this lower stage conserves energy, saves you money, keeps your home at the perfect temperature, and offers advanced humidity control. There are also many air quality control technologies, including a built-in ventilator to bring in fresh air from outside, a UV lamp to keep the evaporator coil bacteria- and mould-free, and an Air Cleaner purifier.
Carrier cares about the durability of their air conditioning units, so the 24ANB7 has been built to last. It has a galvanized steel cabinet that's protected by a baked-on powder paint and WeatherArmor cabinet protection, a louvered guard protects the coil, and the unit comes with a filter drier that prevents moisture damage. Finally, the 24ANB7 has been specifically designed to provide you with quiet comfort, and a few of the sound-reducing features include Silencer System II components that reduce vibrations, a specially designed fan, and a sound blanket for the compressor.

Comparable Models by Carrier
Model Comparison by Price: Infinity 24ANB7 versus Comfort 24ABC6
The 24ANB7 is part of Carrier's premium Infinity line, so if you're on a budget, then this might not be the right air conditioner for you. If you're still interested in a Carrier cooling system, then there are plenty of more affordable air conditioners in their line. The Comfort 24ABC6, for instance, is part of their low-tier offering and at least $1,000 cheaper, but this is still a high-efficiency cooling system with ENERGY STAR certification, and it's durable, reliable, and backed by the same great warranty.
Model Comparison by Features: Infinity 24ANB7 versus Performance 24ACB3
The Performance 24ACB3 is one of Carrier's mid-range air conditioners, and although it's significantly cheaper than the Infinity 24ANB7, there are some concessions you'd have to make. For one thing, the SEER rating on the Performance model is only 13, and it doesn't have ENERGY STAR certification so that you won't save nearly as much on your monthly energy bills. This model is also equipped with a less advanced single-stage compressor, which isn't as effective at temperature maintenance, humidity control, or quiet operation.
Model Comparison by Tier: Infinity 24ANB7 versus Infinity 24VNA0
The Infinity 24ANB7 is an incredible cooling system with great specifications and features, but it still can't compete with Carrier's top-of-the-line Infinity 24VNA0. It's equipped with a variable-speed compressor for even better comfort capabilities, has a SEER rating of 20.5, comes with an additional three-year labour warranty, and has Greenspeed Intelligence for the ultimate in cooling performance, energy efficiency, and quiet operation.
