Greenspeed Intelligence: This exclusive technology from Carrier pairs the Infinity control with the advanced variable-speed capabilities of the 24VNA0 to give you advanced cooling capabilities, great energy savings, and one of the quietest air conditioning systems that Carrier offers. As a result, you get a home that's always at the perfect temperature for your comfort needs, you save plenty of money on your energy bills, and you never have to worry about a noisy cooling system.
Variable-speed compressor: The 24VNA0's variable-speed compressor promises superior performance and ultimate energy savings. Because the unit has multiple stages of operation, it can run at a lower speed to keep your home comfortable and save energy and money, and then ramp up when it gets hotter to maintain the right temperature. Variable-speed compressors also offer superior humidity control, so your cooling system won't have to work as hard and will last longer.
Air quality control features: Cooling systems can blow contaminants through your home all summer long, but the 24VNA0 has several features designed to improve air quality. These include an Air Cleaner purifier, a ventilator that brings in fresh air from outside, and a UV lamp to eliminate contaminants like mould from the evaporator coil.
