Which HVAC Brand is the Best?

Which HVAC Brand is the Best?It’s worth the time to investigate HVAC brands before replacing an existing system, especially in Yuma where cooling systems run day and night for six months of the year. Besides making summers tolerable, a good system will run dependably and affordably and have a generous warranty.

Leading Brands

American Standard, Carrier and Trane top the list for high quality (and high priced) HVAC equipment. You will recover your investment, since these brands are among the most durable and dependable in the industry. Carrier invented refrigerated air conditioning about a century ago and still leads the industry in quality and price. Trane provides a 10 year warranty for parts and labor.

Innovative Brands

Lennox is another respected brand in the industry and known for its focus on energy efficiency. They offer cooling equipment with efficiency ratings that nearly double the current minimums, something to consider for Yuma’s hot summers. Heil is another brand to consider that uses smart technology to improve HVAC efficiency. Heil also provides a generous warranty.

Good Values

Air conditioning is not an option in southwest Arizona, and HVAC brands that deliver energy efficiency and dependability at a reasonable price include:

  • Goodman
  • York
  • Rheem
  • Ruud
  • Amana

Amana distinguishes itself by offering a lifetime conditional warranty on the compressor in its air conditioners. This part is the most expensive in A/Cs and heat pumps, and it works hard. Goodman products are well built and priced affordably. York combines efficiency with value, and Rheem is an all-around respected manufacturer.

Installation Considerations

For all the advanced features and technology that the leading manufacturers put into their equipment, much of the dependability and efficiency rest in how well they’re installed. The contractor’s qualifications do make a difference.

When you’re choosing an HVAC contractor, look for NATE certification. NATE (North American Technician Excellence) is a non-profit, national program that singles out the best contractors and technicians in the industry.

Learning about HVAC brands will help you choose the best system for your home and budget. For more information, contact Hansberger Refrigeration and Electric Company, providing NATE-certified HVAC services for Yuma-area homeowners.
