"Do Not Buy A York/Luxaire!!!!!"
Do not buy a York/Luxaire AC ever!!!! It has saved me on my utility
bill, but the repair work on it has exceeded that savings. I had to pay
almost $1,000 on the repair work, freon/labor in one week. The tech said
York/Luxaire had put some sort of insulation on the evaporator coils
that was eating away on the coils. It made all of the freon leak out.
I bought mine in November 2008. It worked okay, did not ever cool as I
thought it should. Last week it stopped cooling, the more it ran, the
hotter it got. I definitely would not buy again!

"Luxaire 4-Ton Central A/C"
Had a Luxaire 4-ton central A/C system installed when we built our home
in 1999. I am just now replacing the unit with a Rheem 5-ton system.
Would have went back with Luxaire, but my preferred A/C service
contractor installs Rheem systems. The system worked great for 11-12
years. Had to have freon added the last 2-3 years once each summer. The
system lasted 14 years. That's not too bad for having to perform in
Louisiana's hot humid summers.

I have had the same Luxaire central air split system installed in my
house for 43 years, not a misprint! Yes, 43 years. I replaced the
condenser fan motor and the capacitor for it once, about 10 years ago.
I change the air filter yearly and keep the condenser clear of anything
that could block air flow to it. Only now am I replacing it because the
condensate pan in the blower has rusted through and also because of its
low seer rating. What's the secret to 43 years of service? It's almost
99% the guy who installs it. These systems are complicated involving
principles of thermodynamics, physics, and electricity, all working in
balance. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent in the world
over the years to improve the efficiency of A/C systems. Then if you
give it to a pig to install, it will immediately lose 30% of its
efficiency and die within a few years from compressor failure most
likely due to sloppy refrigerant field piping.

"wonderful ac central system"
When you look on line at the wonderful web page you would think hey this
company makes good products. Far from it. I built a new home three years
ago unfortunately my contractors used luxaire as the hvac unit. First
the fan motor for the a coil went out one year later. Three days no ac
in Louisiana sure no problem. The same story about the condenser coil
two years later.if you want poor quality poor service and poor warranty
buy luxaire you will get it....

not cooling.Leak on coil on outside condenser unit.Said it was real
common as they use a real thin coil. Unit is under warranty, but not the
labor. With 96 degree heat in la my wife can't be w/o a/C. Will be

"AC requires service every year"
At first when our unit was installed, 2 days later is started to make a terrible sound. I called the company and he said it was the first ac unit he put it that was defective from Luxaire and promptly replaced it. Fast forward a year later and my unit froze outside, not enough air flow so fixed that. Now again into my 3rd year, the air is not cold anymore, the fan is working. This unit is a certified piece of crap.

I had 2 years with this unit, and on the first year the strat kit was
failure; right now, the compressor is broken. Bad option.

"Total lack of QUALITY for Luxaire products"
Both my ac unit and my Furnace have required service call with in 4
years of installation. Last furnace I had for 8 years (we moved) never
required any type of service. Be careful of luxaire.

"Never buy a Luxaire, York, Coleman"
This unit might run okay when you first buy it but God help you if it
breaks. I am here in Texas in 103 degree heat with an ts compressor
control board broken that "unitary product" or Johnson Controls (parent
company to all three above) doesn't make anymore. So I am now stuck with
a no - good piece of crap. What they did come up with is a 2 contractor 2
relay replacement kit / field re-engineering process, that turns your
two stage computer controlled unit into a 1950's one-stage wonder. (you
wonder why you would every buy anything made by York, Coleman, Luxaire,
or Johnson Controls.
