"No complaints, great furnace."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Other than the inducer motor being a little loud, we have zero complaints with our unit. It has been virtually maintenance free for over eleven years now. It is cheap to operate and keeps our home comfortable year round.

"Worse furnace ever"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I built my new home in 2007 designing the home myself. I left the heating system up to my general contractor to handle. What a mistake! Square footage of the home is 2400 with average ceiling heights of 10′. Heating contractor installed a 58mcb080-10112 forced air furnace and said it would be fine and that it would handle the load. It is single stage but turns on and off every 10 – 20 minutes in the winter at 30 degrees and runs continuously when the temperature is above 75 degrees. Heating contract has been out numerous times and said everything is fine. Why are we cold?? 68 degrees in the house and can’t get it to 70 unless I want it to run all the time. Burned up 3 condenser compressors and one fan motor on the furnace. Way under sized for my home. Not Carriers fault but it looked like junk from the first day it was installed and is noise. Looking at replacing it now with other brand. I guess I got carried away by the brand and the contractors.

"Warranty – A Joke"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I have two Carrier furnaces in my home, one upstairs and one down. The upstairs in the attic exhaust blower stopped working just a few months outside the warranty of a new build home. I purchased my house in August and it went out the following 5-years later in the following winter. I don�t have ac but will be installing this upcoming year; I was going to purchase twin Carrier units to go with my twin furnaces to the tune of $8000. To my chagrin, I found out that if I had registered my units within 30-days of purchase I would had gotten a 20-year warranty on the furnaces. I fought with Carrier over this and even filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and basically was told to go pound pavement. Who the h**l reads all their warranty fine print within 30- days of moving!?! Who the h**l writes a warranty for a major appliance with this type of caveat!?! Now I have to pay almost $800 to have this fixed! Customer Service? Carrier doesn�t offer Customer Service!!! They were even rude on the phone!

Other 58MCB Reviews

A thread on hvac-talk.com reveals a discussion about different Carrier models, including the 58MCB. One expert says that, even though the 58MCB is a base model, it is part of a high-efficiency series and is a quality product. Another contractor points out that technicians often quote base models because most homeowners want the lowest price possible.

A potential Carrier customer asks on gardenweb.com whether or not it would be worthwhile to upgrade from the 58MCB to a model with a variable speed blower, as the 58MCB has a single-speed blower. An expert comments that a variable speed blower provides more comfort and is therefore worthwhile, but it is up to the customer to decide on paying the price difference.

A Carrier 58MCB owner writes on justanswer.com that his blower has been running nonstop in the two months since installation. He had consulted a technician, who did not know why it was continuously running. An expert on the site explains to the owner how to disconnect a wire in the control panel, which will reportedly make the blower run only when the furnace is heating.

58MCB Warranty

Carrier offers a 10-year limited warranty on the 58MCB parts and 20 years on the unit�s heat exchanger. The warranty must be registered within 90 days of purchase by the customer; an unregistered furnace receives a 5-year parts warranty and 20 years on the heat exchanger. Secondary owners receive 10 years for parts and 20 years for the heat exchanger on a registered 58 MCB; however, an unregistered secondary furnace is only guaranteed for five years on both warranties.
