Carrier’s recently redesigned lineup of gas furnaces have begun shipping to consumers with Near Field Communication (NFC) – an innovative addition to support the installation and servicing of its gas furnace portfolio – included. Carrier is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.
With the tap of a phone, dealers can modify installation settings and pull diagnostic information all without power or cell phone service. NFC functionality has been incorporated into the existing Carrier Service Tech App for dealers and technicians. It offers features such as:
- Built-in verifications for a quality install and fewer callbacks.
- Detailed diagnostic information and troubleshooting tips.
- Save favorite feature for repeat floorplans or multi-unit installations.
- Export report functionality.
“Best-in-class dealers and technicians deserve best-in-class systems and servicing technology,” said Heidi Gehring, Director of Residential Product Management, Carrier. “Our newly redesigned and relaunched gas furnaces fitted with Near Field Communication capabilities will help ensure our customers receive quicker installation and servicing.”
Near Field Communication is not the only enhancement Carrier made to its gas furnace portfolio. Following the recent 2023-regulatory changes, Carrier relaunched its entry-tier line with competitive airflows and 18-speeds, maximizing cooling ratings. The mid-tier line-up, in addition to the entry-tier enhancements, now also features a seven-segment display for easier fault code readings. Additionally, Carrier’s deluxe gas furnace, with the entry and mid-tier enhancements updated, includes updated blower doors and Bluetooth added for improved servicing.
Carrier continues to lead the industry with digitally enabled lifecycle solutions designed with dealers and technicians in mind. For more information, visit https://www.carrier.com/residential/en/us/.
