10 year parts warranty? Which model did you have?

Research and others steered me away from the highest efficiency Trane heat pump, but the next model down seemed to have a pretty reliable record. I have not come across the Carrier Infinity 20 Greenspeed having any particular issues that made it stand out. Maybe some other Carrier models don't have a good track record. Ours will come with a 2-year labor and 10-year parts warranty.

Our current unit is a 10 SEER Carrier and is 16+ years old and still working. Just had to replace a capacitor on the condenser unit about 4-5 year ago but otherwise no issues.
