Reviews by Central Air Conditioner Series

TCJD LX Echelon FRCS

man Heating and Air Conditioning is owned by York, a Johnson Controls Co. This company is a large manufacturer of HVAC products. Coleman began as a company in 1900, when W. C. Coleman sold lanterns to pay for law school. Coleman carries three series of air conditioners: the Echelon, the LX and the Comforteer. Each series contains several models.

Coleman Echelon Series Air Conditioners

The Coleman Echelon series is the manufacturer’s top-of-the-line air conditioner. The AC8B model achieves a SEER of 18 and utilizes R-410A refrigerant. This model uses the WhisperDrive System, which includes a high-efficiency compressor isolated from other parts, and is designed overall for quiet operation.

The AC6B model achieves a SEER of 16, but otherwise carries features similar to the AC8B. The other model in the Echelon series is the TCHD, which has a SEER of 13. The design of this model allows for installation in tight spaces, suitable for zero-lot-line homes. Coleman promises quiet operation, although this model does not carry the WhisperDrive System.

Coleman LX Series Air Conditioners

The TCJF model carries a SEER of 14.5 and uses R-410A refrigerant. This model boasts a compact size compared to other models from Coleman. The TCJD model in this series achieves a SEER of 13. It also utilizes R-410A refrigerant, and both models are reported to operate quietly.

Coleman Comforteer Series Air Conditioners

The Comforteer TCGF model uses a high-efficiency compressor and is able to rate a SEER of 14.5. This model uses R410-A, as do all of the Coleman air conditioners. Coleman also states that this model operates quieter than traditional air conditioners. The final model is the TCGD, which has a SEER of 13. The TCGD is manufactured with a compact design, for homeowners short on space.

Care and Maintenance of Coleman Air Conditioners

The Coleman website offers some maintenance tips for air conditioner owners, including caulking the hole where the thermostat wire comes into the house and replacing or cleaning air filters regularly.

Warranty

Coleman’s standard warranty is 10 years on parts and 10 years on the compressor. The premium system warranty offers 10 years on parts and a lifetime guarantee on the compressor, with the purchase of an approved air handler and coil.

"Texas design flaw"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

Sorry, I don't understand the design of this unit. I live in Texas. The unit was 10-months-old; come to find out, if the area around the circuit board gets too hot, the unit turns itself off with a circuit breaker, so almost everyday I have to go outside take cover off and switch the circuit breaker. I paid this much money for the unit so that it won't cool in the Texas summer unless I babysit it every day of summer. Someone please explain the design idea to me.

"It's all about the installation."

5.0 rating

Most air conditioning and heating equipment is very comparable brand to brand. It is the installation and how well it has been maintained over the years that makes the difference. If you have a new system installed and right away you begin having problems.. It is very likely that it is due to the installation. Every contractor has a little trouble with an install once and a while.. It's part of doing business. But, he or she should always fess up to the real problem at hand and take care of it. All major manufacturers test each unit before they ship it for defects. I have been installing these systems for more than 20 years and I have only found a "new" system to be defective a handful of times. When someone says they are a tenant and they had someone come out to fix there old existing ac unit that never worked and now that it works their electric bill is through the roof. It's most likely because they have an old in-efficient system from the 70's or 80's and now that it does work and they are using it every day they are seeing the effects of an old in-efficient system… High energy draws. If you want to run your a/c and have a moderate bill… Keep your thermostat above 75 and change your filter every three months. And or buy an efficient system (16 seer and up). It is the responsibility of whoever lives in the home to replace the filter… No one else's!! Just because your a/c or heater does not work the way you think it should doesn't mean Carrier or Coleman or Trane or Goodman make sub-par systems. There is a lot more to it than the brand. When considering any home improvement (tenants excluded), you should always get three estimates. After getting your estimates. You should have a pretty good idea of which contractor knows what they are doing and who doesn't. If you're still not sure after three, get three more. Estimates are free!! Don't go with the cheapest estimate!!! They either don't know what they're doing or they're going to cut corners to keep the cost down. Either way, it's not in your best interest, plain and simple. Go with the middle guy (granted your gut is in agreeance, important!!). I can go on for days, the simple fact is, the manufacturers are all doing "about" the same thing. There are no trade secrets (especially with standard efficiency equipment 14 seer 80% efficient furnaces). As long as it is installed PROPERLY it will last 10-15 years as it should. Pay the money, have it installed properly and you will enjoy it for many years. DON'T BASH THE MANUFACTURERS FOR THE INSTALLERS POOR WORKMANSHIP!!!

"Great install."

Beautiful installation detail: neat and very well done. The team also did a remarkable clean-up. System runs flawlessly, too. Highly recommend the Coleman system, and Advance Temperature Solutions to install it.

"sPECIALIZES IN MANUFACTERED HOMES"

3.0 rating
Neutral

I selected my unit and contractor because of the recommendation of Clayton Homes of Santa Rosa where I purchased my home. I like the fact that Scott specializes is installs for manufactured homes, easily pulled my permit, and got the work done quickly and efficiently. I do wish the price had been a little lower, after doing some research it seems I was a bit overcharged, but not by much. Scott was patent, thorough, and took a lot of time with me explaining my unit and my new thermostat. The install was accomplished quickly (in about 3.5 hours) and they cleaned up after themselves quite well. There have been no hot days since my install so I haven't had a chance to use the unit yet.

"Contractor"

3.0 rating
Neutral

K&S Heating and Air Conditioning did an outstanding job. It only took 1 1/2 days to replace the heating and air conditioning systems. This was also a change over from oil to natural gas. I am neutral on the system because it has only been installed for less than 45 days. So no drastic heat or cold experienced yet.
