Prices by Size

The table below represents the different size Carrier central air units available for the most common home installations. The cooling area is an estimate, based on the average size area it will cool. The only way to know which size you need in your home is to have a load calculation performed on your home by a Carrier Expert, who will measure the heat loss of your home and size the unit to your needs. In many cases, your current AC size is going to replaced for a similar sized unit.
