Carrier Corp. is enhancing the warranties on its 90% + efficient gas furnaces. Carrier will provide a 20-year parts and labor warranty for the secondary heat exchanger.
The enhancements respond to a recent class-action lawsuit by a small number of U.S. and Canadian consumers claiming premature failure on the secondary heat exchanger found in Carrier, Bryant, Payne, and Day & Night high-efficiency condensing gas furnaces that are 90% AFUE or greater and were produced after Jan. 1, 1989. (Day & Night furnaces sold after January 2007 are not affected.) Carrier denies the claims and maintains that it acted lawfully and properly.
