Carrier residential products are divided into two categories: heating and cooling systems, and indoor air quality systems. Heating and cooling systems are comprised of air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, boilers, fan coils and evaporator coils. The Infinity 20 Heat Pump, for example, is a versatile unit that dehumidifies and cools air temperatures in summer with a seasonal energy efficiency rating of up to 20.5, but can also heat indoors with an efficiency rating of 13 heating seasonal performance factor.

Indoor air quality products by Carrier include air cleaners, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, ventilators, UV lamps, and carbon monoxide detectors and alarms. While air cleaners actively filter incoming ventilation, screening out allergens, pathogens and pollutants, humidifiers and dehumidifiers adjust the air moisture content. Ventilators, such as Carrier's Energy Recovery models, support between 100 and 200 cubic feet of air flow per minute. The units provide heating recovery efficiency of 72 to 79 percent and cooling recovery efficiency of up to 52 percent.

Generally, Carrier products are installed by licensed area dealers. The company provides, as of 2015, an online dealer search that locates retailers who offer Carrier products.
