Carrier is the preeminent leader in HVAC equipment and products. Its founder, Willis Carrier is credited with the invention of the modern air conditioner in 1902. For over a century, Carrier has been focused on manufacturing high-quality home comfort systems.

At Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning, we are a Carrier factory authorized dealer, which means we are a premier provider of Carrier products and carry the latest in HVAC technology.

In terms of heating and cooling systems, Carrier has 3 series currently that all provide reliable home comfort solutions for families in Riverside California, and the surrounding areas.

Carrier Comfort Series- a Good Option

Carrier’s most affordable line of HVAC products is its comfort series. Comfort is the perfect name for this line because it provides both physical and financial comfort for Riverside homeowners. Whether you’re worried about credit or just looking to maximize your budget, a Comfort Series air conditioner from Carrier can provide reliable heating and cool for your home for many years.

Choosing the leader in innovative and dependable HVAC products is the best way to know that you’ve made a smart purchase. When you are THE leader in your industry, you have to maintain a very high standard.

While the Comfort Series may not have the highest level of efficiency and the best performance of Carrier’s products, it still has Carrier’s stamp of approval. Rest assured with any of these Carrier products, you will get a dependable and highly advanced HVAC system.


Any noise emitting 80 or more decibels will be disruptive. The noise produced from a Comfort Series will vary between 72 and 76 decibels. If your A/C is not near your living room or other heavily used areas of your home, you likely will not notice the noise.


The efficiency of air conditioners is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). This ratio focuses on the amount of cooling you can get from your system per single unit of energy. Carrier’s Comfort Series has a SEER rating between 13-16. For most homes, ratings between 13 and 16 are fairly efficient, especially in Southern California.


The Comfort Series is a durable and effective line of air conditioners and heaters. Designed for consistent everyday use for a decade, homeowners won’t have to worry about home comfort, even with Carrier’s more affordable Comfort line of systems. Don’t expect too many repairs with any Carrier product as long as you have your system regularly maintained for optimum performance.

Carrier Performance Series- A Better Option

Carrier’s Performance Series is the perfect balance of performance and cost savings. With SEER ratings that can rival any HVAC product on the market and economical rates, the Performance Series is perfect for any home or business. Find a new air conditioner well within your budget without compromising on quality with Carrier’s Performance Series.


Running between 72 and 74 decibels, the Performance Series A/C units can sound like a vacuum. If your outdoor unit is right outside your bedroom, you may want to consider upgrading to the Infinity Series. However, depending on how well insulated your home and windows are, you may not notice your system running at all at this decibel level.

Ultimately, it comes down to your preference and your unique situation. If you have a well-insulated home, a well-placed HVAC system, and you keep your HVAC system well-maintained so that it operates at its maximum efficiency, noise shouldn’t be a factor in your decision. If you are worried about noise, understand that Carrier products last a long time (10+ years) and that it may be worth looking into a quieter system for your home, like the Infinity system.


Carrier’s Performance line takes efficiency up a notch with systems between 13 and 17 SEER. Ratings between 14-16 are recommended for the average U.S. home. These ratings provide suitable efficiency and reliable home comfort. Each SEER rating makes a notable difference in monthly and yearly energy costs. Choosing a higher efficiency model will pay itself off throughout the years. Keep this in mind when making your HVAC system purchase.


True to its name, the Carrier performance series of products will provide lasting home comfort for home and business owners. With minimal maintenance, these products are designed to last for over a decade without sacrificing efficiency and performance throughout the years.

With a Carrier product, you don’t have to anticipate surprises or wonder if you’ve made the right investment. From the lower 13 SEER-rated air conditioners to the higher efficiency 17 SEER models, a performance series product won’t let you down. Speak with one of our Riverside HVAC specialists today to find the right size for your home.

Carrier Infinity Series-The Best Option

The Carrier Infinity Series is the highest efficiency and performance line of products from THE leader in HVAC technology.

Carrier’s Infinity Series is the best in the business. Hands down. For those of you that want to invest in higher efficiency products that pay off in the long run or those of you who don’t want to settle for anything less than the absolute best, this is the product line for you. With a maximum SEER rating of 21 and a proprietary Infinity Controller that enables you to take control of your system’s performance, the Infinity Series is exemplary of Carrier’s status as an elite manufacturer of HVAC products.

What’s more is that Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning’s offers the Infinity Tech Package, which allows you to get the ultimate in-home comfort and smart home technology. When you purchase a Carrier Infinity HVAC system from Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning’s, we will give you a free upgrade, including an Amazon Alexa, smart thermostat, and smart light switches for your home.


The decibels produced by an Infinity Series air conditioner can vary between 65 and 66. This can be heard as a conversation. Depending on the placement of your system and how well your home is insulated, you will likely not be able to hear your AC running whatsoever.

Most Carrier products run with such efficiency and reliability that they do not produce a disruptive amount of noise. If you do notice your Carrier Infinity, Performance, or Comfort Series producing excessive noise, it could be a sign of issues and should be looked into by an HVAC technician.


The Infinity Series carries SEER ratings between 16 and 21. Homeowners have the option to choose the SEER rating that works for their space. With the durability that comes with Carrier products, Infinity Series systems will last between 10 and 20 years. Over that span, the higher efficiency system will more than make up the difference in the initial cost.


The highest level of performance and efficiency from the leading HVAC company in the world – that’s what you get with Carrier’s Infinity Series air conditioners and heat pumps. Whether you’re looking to maximize your energy efficiency or just want to make a lasting investment for your home’s comfort, the Infinity Series is the best you can get. For 10 years or more, if you choose an Infinity Series product, you will be getting efficient and reliable home comfort with little maintenance.

Get the peace of mind that comes with the reliability of a quality-built machine-like Carrier’s Infinity HVAC system and feel good about going green in the process.

HVAC Maintenance

The last thing you want is a lengthy repair process. If your HVAC dealer doesn’t have access to genuine parts, you could be stuck sweating or freezing in your own home for weeks. This is the risk you take by choosing less reputable HVAC brands or keeping an older system.

Carrier regularly distributes HVAC parts throughout the U.S. This allows them to provide fast and reliable shipment of parts for repairs or routine maintenance. As a Carrier factory authorized dealer, Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning is always stocked with genuine, quality Carrier parts for all of the HVAC systems that we stock.

Preventative maintenance can also help you get more life out of your new HVAC system. Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning’s makes routine maintenance easy with our HVAC maintenance plans. Signing up for one of our plans will help ensure that your system is properly cared for throughout the year, allowing you to enjoy home comfort without worrying about efficiency or repair needs.

Carrier Dependability

Purchasing a new HVAC system is a major commitment. Your home’s HVAC system controls your home’s comfort. Modern HVAC systems can last between 10 and 20 years. Saving a few dollars upfront can cost you big in the long run by signing up for years of lesser-quality heating and cooling.

Take the time to think about the impact a quality air conditioner or furnace could have on your home. Knowing that your home comfort system was built by the premier HVAC manufacturer, makes a large investment that much easier. Carrier products are going to provide effective and efficient heating and cooling, for longer than the competitors. Though it may require a large up-front investment, you’ll never regret investing in a superior quality Carrier HVAC system.

Don’t forget, Carrier also offers a range of HVAC accessories. From premium thermostats to IAQ technology like air purifiers, Carrier provides everything you need to achieve ultimate home comfort.

Energy Efficiency

This is what it all comes down to. This is the difference between the top-tier manufacturers, like Carrier, and the rest. It’s also the difference between more affordable systems and elite, high-end Carrier HVAC systems. Energy efficiency speaks to the energy consumption of an electrical product. HVAC systems account for a great deal of your home’s monthly energy use.

Modern HVAC systems are designed with optimum energy efficiency in mind. However, certain systems were built with greater efficiency to limit the energy required to achieve the optimal home temperature.

If you can afford the upfront cost, investing in an energy-efficient HVAC system will limit your carbon footprint and provide long-term monthly savings. By purchasing an energy-efficient HVAC system, you can more than make up your difference through lower monthly energy bills.
