It is a hot sunny day and you come home tired after work. All you need is a few minutes of relaxation and you would like to enjoy the quiet moments in a cool cozy environment. However, you discover that the air conditioner is not working and you really get frustrated. Though an air conditioner may not be a necessity, if you live in a hot humid climate you may not be able to live without this luxury. Since air conditioners are greatly increasing in popularity, manufacturers are investing substantially in making products more and more energy efficient. It is also a relief that today air conditioners are quite affordable. It is definitely a tough decision to purchase an air conditioner given the great number of sizes, brands and kind of AC units.

There are several air conditioning brands to choose from and I believe these are the top 5 air conditioning brands in the market today:

1. Carrier Air Conditioners
Carrier air conditioners have been around for a very long time and may have been the first to design an air conditioner in the year 1902. Carrier Air conditioners can be classified into four kinds that include Performance, Comfort, and Infinity and Base units. Carrier tests and focuses the units for durability, sound and air quality.

 

2. Trane Air Conditioners
Trane Air Conditioners is also a 100 year old company including the General Electric and American Standard brands and has transformed the way air conditioning and heating has been used in the US. The company claims that their services and units are dominating residential, commercial, industrial and institutional markets and are reputed for high quality, consistency, innovation and they have a powerful distribution market. Trane offers Super, Ultra, standard and high efficiency units. The units have a SEER rating of 13 to 20.

 

3. Goodman Air Conditioner
Goodman Air Conditioners, with major focus on commercial and residential units have been around for more than 60 years. Goodman claims that they focus on excellent quality products at an economical price and unlike Carrier and Trane, do not classify their units based on efficiency. They feature 7 residential units with SEER ratings between 13 and 18. Their main focus is on the durability, affordability and cooling comfort of the units.

 

4. York Air Conditioner
Johnson Controls purchased this company in 2005 making it the largest provider of integrated systems, products and services in the buildings sector. Even though this brand has not been around as much as Goodman, Trane or Carrier, the units are highly energy efficient and durable. The units of York are broken down into LX, Affinity and Latitude models ranging from 13 to 18 SEER.

 

5. Kenmore Air Conditioner
Presently Kenmore air conditioners are manufactured by five manufacturers for Sears that include Electrolux, Whirlpool, LG, Friedrich and Keeprite. It is important to know because Kenmore air conditioners are at a premium.

All these brands are top-class and are the best bet for your air conditioning needs. Brands that have been around for a long time are reliable and trustworthy but even those that have recently entered into the market have put in a lot of R&D to ensure that their brands are top-class.

      I install Carrier (Bryant, Payne), Trane, Lennox, York, and other equipment (commercial).
      Most major brands are comparable. I can’t say one is a major piece of junk over the other though I do shy away from certain brands.
      Check the warranties – don’t settle for any less than 10 year compressor and 5 years on all other parts.
      Also check the features. I prefer Carrier/Bryant’s Infinity/Evolution system. You don’t even have to go that far to get great efficiencies, but it has great comfort features. You work with a brand enough and become all comfy with it. Mckindle has Tempstar. Every one has something different.
      And you already know that the installation is most important which I agree, so most brands installed correctly will last for years.

    Buying branded air conditioner from a branded company leaves you in no doubt for its quality as the brand itself carries a reputation which is always associated with the quality. A poor quality product can never get reputation.
