(Syracuse, N.Y., April 22, 2003) – “The American
consumer is besieged by all kinds of claims and counter-claims
in a complex and very competitive marketplace,” says
Randy Weber, Publisher, Consumers Digest magazine,
in a recent letter to Carrier President Geraud Darnis.
So when Consumers Digest magazine, a trusted resource
of product research and testing information, rates a product
a “Best Buy,” it carries weight. The Best Buy recognition
“Cuts through the confusion by directing consumers toward
superior values from among all models available to them,”
says Weber. “Those products, therefore, gain greater acceptance
from the millions of consumers whose final purchase decisions
are guided by this designation.”
Recognizing that Carrier was the first company to develop
air conditioners using Puron, the editors of Consumers
Digest selected the WeatherMaker with Puron Refrigerant
model 38TXA central air conditioner as a “Best Buy” in
its May/June issue. Also recognized as “Best Buys” are
the new Solaire window/room air conditioner, model ACA051T,
and the 33,500 BTU model HCA343D.
“The Consumers Digest ‘Best Buy’ designation has high
visibility and credibility with homeowners, and will
no doubt create increased awareness and interest in our
products,” says Rick Roetken, Carrier Brand Manager.
