Willis Carrier is credited with inventing modern air conditioning in 1902. The corporation bearing his name succeeded in marketing its first air conditioner to the residential market in the 1950s, creating a revolution in which formerly sparsely populated areas such as the American Southwest became home to sprawling suburbs. Carrier is the largest air conditioning producer in the world. It has U.S. manufacturing facilities in Indianapolis, IN for residential and commercial furnaces and air handlers Collierville, TN for residential condensing units and heat pumps, Tyler, TX for residential package units and commercial condensing and package units, Mexico for evaporator coils, and Charlotte, NC for accessories and chillers. Carrier Corporation is also the manufacturer of Bryant, Payne, and Day & Night Heating and Cooling Systems, as well as additional brands through its sister company, International Comfort Products (ICP) headquartered in Lewisburg, TN which was acquired by Carrier in 1999. Carrier's brand names include Weathermaker furnaces and air conditioners, Weathermaster commercial units, Centurion rooftop units, and Aquazone water- and ground-source heat pumps.  Carrier also owns Transicold ("reefer" transport refrigeration). In early 2008, Carrier acquired Environmental Market Solutions, Inc. (EMSI), an environmental and green building consulting company based in the United States.

Carrier Corporation is headquartered in Farmington, CT and was acquired by United Technologies Corporation in July 1979. Prior to the acquisition by UTC, Carrier Corporation was known as the Carrier Air Conditioning Company.

The Carrier Corporation built a plant in Mexico as a green building. Carrier Corp.’s Mexico factory is the first HVAC Factory In The World To Receive LEED® Gold Certification. The Tyler Texas plant lost production lines to this Mexico facility, leaving hundreds of U.S. workers without a job.

The Carrier Corporation historically has been based in Syracuse, New York where Willis Carrier moved his facilities from New Jersey in the 1930s. During the late 20th century, when it was acquired by UTC, it was Central New York State's largest manufacturer. Due to increasing labor and union in the Central New York area, Carrier has substantially downsized its presence in Syracuse, with manufacturing work being moved to a variety of domestic and international locations. Meanwhile, managerial employees were relocated closer to UTC's Connecticut corporate headquarters. This has been a challenge for the Syracuse regional economy.

Carrier purchased the naming rights to the Carrier Dome, the football and basketball arena at Syracuse University. Despite being named for an air conditioner manufacturer, the Carrier Dome is not air conditioned.

Carrier has numerous air conditioner models that are certified by Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM).
