INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, December 15, 2011 - Just months after launching the 2011 Practical Energy Plan, U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Indiana) visited the Carrier manufacturing facility in Indianapolis to view its new high-efficiency furnace line. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) solutions and a part of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), introduced its new Infinity® gas furnace line earlier this year, with industry-leading energy efficiency and sound ratings.
Sen. Lugar spoke with a small group of employees about the economic and environmental benefits of energy efficiency and his "Practical Energy Plan," which encourages states to adopt long-term frameworks to improve energy savings in new homes and buildings.
"It is a tremendous honor to have U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar and his team visit Carrier to discuss energy efficiency and view our latest ultra-efficient Infinity® furnace line," said Rick Sanfrey, president of operations, Carrier Residential Systems. "Carrier continually invests in research and development to expand the energy-efficient range of its products. The new Infinity furnace line delivers precise comfort with reduced energy use, and includes the most energy-efficient furnace in Carrier history, with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) up to 98 percent."
The new Carrier Infinity gas furnace line with Greenspeed™ intelligence features units that combine modulating and variable-speed technologies with a communicating control system to constantly adapt to a home's conditions.
"The efficiencies you have achieved here at Carrier are truly impressive," Sen. Lugar said. "One of our key objectives within the Senate is to think of new ways to increase energy efficiency within the U.S. and provide business and consumer incentives to do exactly what you are doing here – saving money within your facility by reducing energy consumption and developing energy-efficient products that will help homeowners save money."
