"Warranty is not worth reading"
I have a 5 ton heat pump that Maytag will not stand by the warranty. Do not buy this heat pump. It is not possibe to get warranty work done and the people at Maytay just give you the run around. This was a $9,000 loss. I hve to junk the unit and start over. Never again will I deal with maytag.

I was a heating and air conditioning contractor who installed Maytag for seven years there warranty department went belly up trying to get warranty on these machines we have installed is a living nightmare. Maytag will not give you the time of day if your not selling there product. I believe they should stand up to the plate for all the customers and honor there warranties. I Would not recommend Maytag hvac to any customer.

"Worst in the Industry I Suppose"
This heat pump is extremely noisy when cycling. The compressor is also very noisy when cold. I had 3 other heat pumps with other houses but this one is the worst. On top of it, the contractor who installed it is now out of business and neither Nordyne or Maytag seems to care. Next move is lawyer. They say its the best but to that is all marketing hype.

"Maytag Heat Pump was a very good choice"
I purchased a Maytag 16 seer Heat Pump system in the fall of 2010. I had several contractors to my home and received several estimates from them. What I found during this process is that all contractors are not the same! The company that I chose was very thorough and knowledgeable about his products. When I informed the other contractors of my decision to purchase the Maytag system, they all wanted to knock the Maytag system. Well let me tell you, I am completely satisfied with my Maytag system. I have learned from this experience that the choice of contractor is probably just as important, if not more so, than the product. Make sure you are comfortable with the company that you are spending your money with. I am a very happy Maytag Heat Pump owner, and would highly recommend this system!

"Contractor Lacks Intgerity"
As a distributor of Maytag Heating & Air Conditiong equipment with 30 years experience selling many other different brands of equipment in the hvac industry I can attest Maytag is a top quality piece of equipment. Weather you are looking for an ac, Gas Furnace, Heat Pump, Packaged Unit, or oil Furnace they have the best warranty in the market..bar none. The best warranty !!! Maytag does not lack integrity, but many contactors do. Mr. Lanman, a contractor who takes 3 years to find a leak is not one I would ever use. There are so many tools available in the industry to check for leaks. It should be found on the first visit, by a properly trained service technician. Why would they refill the system without first finding and fixing the leak ??? Maytag offers a 12 years parts warranty...why wasn't your coil/or replaced by the contractor Mr. Lanman, if it could not be repaired. Maytag would have provided your contractor a new part at no charge. Sounds like your contractor is pulling the wool over your eyes. Mr. Lanman, your contractor may lack knowledge or intergity, don't you think? I biggest problem our industry faces is not faulty or badly designed equipment, but equipment that is not installed or serviced properly. Improperly installed equipment by improperly trained contractors accounts for 90% of consumer problems but consumers always blame the equipment mannufacturers 1st. Bad contractors cause 90% of the problems Research your contactor and get references from other customers. Get references from his recent customers and customers who had work done several years ago by him. Maytag has the best warranty and support in the industry and they "do right", every time. Often when a contactor doesn't know what they are doing they like blame the equipment and the manufacturers .Highly educated american engineers design this equipment. The question you should be asking is, "is the guy installing or servicing my system properly trained to do so".

"Maytag Proves They Lack Integrity"
Just found out that the small refrigerant leak in our Maytag heat pump is from a know faultily designed part. Maytag changed the part design but never recalled the part. Our local hvac company each year refilled the system and looked for the leak and finally found the leak after three years of sub-par performance. The part was only under a one year warranty so even though Maytag knew they had a problem they just pushed the problem on to me and my hvac provider. Looks my hvac provider has more integrity than Maytag since they replaced the part on their dime (3-4 hours labor alone!). Maytag refused to provide the parts and labor. As far as Maytag - never again unless they prove their commitment to 'do right'. Isn't that what we ask our kids to do, 'do right'? Come on Maytag prove your values.

"Happy Maytag Customer"
My 16 seer Maytag Heat Pump is the best decision my wife and I have ever made!!!This unit is so quiet we have it located right next to our outdoor deck and can hardly hear it running. The only noise outside my wife and I hear is my neighbors noisy Trane unit. He was also impressed with our Maytag. This has also saved us a ton of money over the last three years we have lived in this house. I would absolutely recommend this equipment to anybody.
