Armstrong Air Central Air Conditioner Overview

Air conditioners manufactured by Armstrong are efficient and quiet units, and many carry the Energy Star rating. These air conditioners use the manufacturer’s MHT technology, an efficiency-maximizing system designed to evenly draw air through the coil to create the greatest surface area for heat transfer. All units have swept fan blades and quality sound reduction. The Microban drain pans used in these units contain an antimicrobial agent prohibiting growth of mold and bacteria.

Armstrong Two-Stage Air Conditioners

Armstrong’s two-stage 16 and 18 SEER air conditioners operate longer, providing cooling at lower capacities, than their single-stage counterparts, and readily operate at higher capacities to maintain indoor comfort in extreme heat. These units are equipped with a communicating control board, making them Comfort Sync compatible. When coupled with the Comfort Sync thermostat, the units benefit from non-stop operation monitoring that leaves the temperature at a comfortable average. In addition, the system can detect and email repair and maintenance needs to the homeowner and dealer. Some of these two-stage air conditioners also come with “Integrated Compressor Protection,” which consists of high and low pressure switches for quality, reliable operation.

Armstrong Single-Stage Air Conditioners

The options available from Armstrong’s single-stage air conditioner consist of 13 and 14 SEER units with scroll compressors. While some units offer Integrated Compressor Protection, others simply feature a high pressure switch. Each unit comes with a polyester paint finish baked over galvanized steel and PVC-coated discharge grille to ensure unit durability.

Care and Maintenance of Armstrong Air Conditioners

Armstrong instructs homeowners to change the air conditioner’s filter regularly to increase the quality of air in the home. Users can opt to receive filter changing reminders via email from the company. For cooling units, the manufacturer advises scheduling annual maintenance before summer.


Armstrong air conditioners come with a standard limited warranty of 5-year coverage on the compressor and 5-year coverage on parts. Extended warranties are available that bring the coverage to 10 years for both the compressor and parts. Warranties must be registered for the homeowner to receive full benefits.

Very Unsatisfied

This Armstrong unit is absolutely junk. Since the first year of being installed, the first summer, it would never hold anywhere close to the desired temperature. Set at 69, the thermostat reads 80. I have a small 800 sq. Ft house and this crappy unit won't even cool it down. It never worked right from the get-go. This is the second summer and again, it's 85 outside and the temp in my house is 80. Set at 69. Stay away from Armstrong Air.

Stay away for this product. It's the second time I needed service for the ac unit since purchased in 2013 and not covered under warranty. So much for a 10-year guarantee!

We have installed Trane, Lennox, Goodman, Rheem, Heil, American Standard, Gibson, Intertherm, Kelvinator, York, Payne, Carrier and serviced all (including Singer, Williamson, Chrysler Air Temp, afco Comfortmaker and all other brands.) We can tell you this, we have been installing over 200+ Armstrong Air units ranging from 13 seer to 20 seer with little or no problems. We are now self warrantying them from years 10-15, we would not do this if they were a problem. Trust me, we do not make money on warranty claims, we actually lose our rear ends. We have replaced 1 & 2 year old trane, carrier and lennox units. If the system is not installed right it will not last period! The biggest problems are short cuts and lack of airflow, not to mention failure to clean coils and change filters.

I am a licensed HVAC contractor from North Jersey, we service every manufacturer on the market. We have been an Armstrong dealer for years with no issues. The majority of issues we find with any piece of equipment is always due to an installation error. Advise to the homeowner is be more concerned with the contractor and less concerned with the equipment.

Unit came with house when built in 2014. Have had a technician come out every year to fix it. Even had to move the mother board to a higher location so it would not short out. Now it's 2018 and have had them come out to fix the unit 6 times just this year.
