Gibson Heating and Cooling manufactures residential and light commercial air conditioners, heat pumps and gas furnaces. Gibson is a subsidiary of AB Electrolux. However, the trademark is licensed in North America by Nordyne, which also markets heating and cooling equipment under the brand names Frigidaire, Tappan, Kelvinator and Philco.
Two companies, both founded in 1877, led to the creation of the Gibson brand. The first was Belding-Hall Co., an "icebox" manufacturer founded by Joshua Hall in Belding, Mich. The second was a refrigerator producer founded in Greenville, Mich., by Frank and John Gibson. Gibson acquired Belding-Hall in 1908. For much of its history, the company has focused on refrigerators, although its website notes that in 1953 Gibson introduced an ozone lamp in its room air conditioner that was designed to remove room odors and in 1959 it introduced to its air conditioners an "air sweep" method of air distribution.
In 1956, Hupp Corp. acquired Gibson, when in 1967 Hupp Corp. was itself acquired by White Consolidated Industries (WCI). In 1986, Sweden-based AB Electrolux acquired WCI. In North America, Nordyne is the exclusive licensee of the Gibson trademark. Nordyne was founded more than 65 years ago in St. Louis and is a subsidiary of Nortek Inc.
Gibson manufactures residential and light commercial split air conditioners, single package air conditioners, split system heat pumps, single package heat pumps and gas and oil furnaces.
Gibson's split system air conditioners and heat pumps range from a basic 13 to high efficiency 16 SEER, with up to 8.5 HSPF for heat pumps. Variable and fixed speed options are available. The company's gas furnaces are fixed-speed units available in single- or two-stages, from 80 to 95.1 percent AFUE. Certain units are designed for installation in small spaces and all use the company's proprietary SmartLite control board, which was designed to extend the life of igniters through the use of hot surface ignition technology. In addition, the company sells a four-speed, single-stage oil furnace.
The company notes that all of its products are tested 100 percent at its factory and feature a steel jacket designed for long-term durability.

Gibson offers a 20-year warranty on the heat exchanger (this extends to a limited lifetime warranty if you register your furnace). The company also offers a 10-year parts warranty and a 1-year "Quality Pledge" on all other products. The Quality Pledge means that if you register your furnace with Gibson, and the heat exchanger or compressor fails within the first year, the manufacturer will replace the furnace or air conditioner.
