Need a Recommendation for a New AC Unit? Read No Further.

For the homeowner shopping for a new air conditioning unit, there are a number of recommended AC brands to consider. If you’ve never purchased one before or it’s been a long time since you have, the good news is that HVAC systems today are better than ever. The average service life of a new central AC is now up around 15 years or more — provided you schedule regular professional maintenance. Energy-efficiency is better than ever, air conditioner cooling performance is also improved, and new technology is integrated into even standard units.

To help make the shopping easier, here are three recommended AC brands to consider.


A distinguished name in HVAC history, Lennox dates back to 1895, when Dave Lennox pioneered the first riveted-steel furnace. By the early 20th century, the company began innovating cooling solutions, including air conditioning. Lennox residential air conditioning options range from the affordable Merit series that offers standard-efficiency cooling to the higher-efficiency Elite line that delivers a SEER efficiency rating as high as 20 with the variable capacity Elite XC20. The top of the line Dave Lennox Signature models take efficiency all the way up to SEER 26 with two-stage cooling technology — the most efficient systems you can buy.


Willis Carrier actually filed the patent for the first electrical air conditioner in 1902. Today, the Carrier Corporation remains a leading name in AC technology. It’s residential central AC lineup ranges from the basic SEER 13 to the SEER 16 Comfort model to the top Infinity series that delivers SEER efficiency up to 20.5.


Beginning with water heaters in the 1940s and advancing into residential HVAC systems in 1970, Rheem is among the top AC manufacturers in the United States.
