Maytag iQ Air Conditioners

Maytag claims its iQ line air conditioners are the industry’s quietest units, producing 59 decibels during operation. In 2012, the 24.5 SEER product in this line was designated by Energy Star to be the most efficient. Maytag also manufactures an iQ gas/electric packaged unit capable of reaching 20 SEER and 81 percent AFUE. These models come with inverter-rotary technology capable of making constant adjustments to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. In addition to having a dehumidification mode, iQ models also have an innovative controller to oversee indoor conditions and provide maintenance and diagnostic information.

High-Efficiency Split-System Air Conditioners

These quiet, two-stage units provide consistent temperatures and comfort in the home. Many of these units, which reach anywhere from 14 to 16 SEER, are Energy Star-rated. When installed with other Maytag products such as coils, air handlers or the iSEER gas furnace, they can attain an efficiency rating of 16 SEER. The jacket and aluminum Microchannels in select units are corrosion-resistant.

Standard-Efficiency Split-System Air Conditioners

The company’s standard-efficiency split system units earn ratings of 13 SEER. These units feature a permanently lubricated PSC motor. The jacket is coated with corrosion-resistant paint, and a corrosion-resistant, durable coil guard and hail guard offer dependable protection from weather-related damage.

Packaged Air Conditioners

Maytag’s packaged units reach from 13 to 15 SEER and 80 percent AFUE, and most bear the ecologic Green Seal. Many of these units feature optional backup heat consisting of an electric strip capable of producing 20 kW of heat. A swept fan blade ensures quiet and efficient operation. In some models, Anteater MC Micro-Channel coils provide considerable corrosion resistance, and all packaged units come with a coil-protecting wire guard and rust-resistant hail guard. To enhance corrosion resistance, a 1.5-mm-thick salt-spray finish coats the jacket.

Care and Maintenance of Maytag Air Conditioners

Annual maintenance from a service technician is recommended by the manufacturer for any of these air conditioners. The service technician will clean the indoor evaporator coil and blower assembly, as well as perform routine checks of the refrigerant levels, unit operation and electrical connections.


Maytag offers two warranties for air conditioners. M1200 units come with a 12-year limited parts warranty and a 12-year Dependability Promise stating that the entire unit will be replaced if the compressor fails. If the product is not registered within 60 days of installation, the Dependability Promise is reduced to the standard 1-year coverage. The M120 models have a 12-year limited parts warranty and a 1-year Dependability Promise.

"Maytag AC sucks"

Very Unsatisfied

Purchase three units for my house all three units have been replaced at least twice and one unit has now been replaced seven times and today yet again another unit just went out Maytag does not make a good product Nortech the company that makes them does not stand behind it Gemaire the company here in Florida that distributes them does not care if you have a problem there was one woman in the office that did care and she took care of me with my last unit but now it has broken too I'm not gonna find another brand to install. Keep in mind these units were installed only six months ago and I haven't even made a full year yet.

"Very unsatisfied"

Received April 14, 2014 I have not had 6 month of good service, had three coils go out, compressor trouble, have been dripping in my closet from day one, service company not good. Labor warranty over with. I can see re buying this unit in repairs. Four years old is too early to replace, wished I would had looked into this brand before I purchased. Talked to service company who had Maytag before and was advised they had to give it up because of problems with equipment just like I have.

Caution-many reviews on this site are submitted by a/c contractor employees. A quick Google brought up the truth.

"No service on warranted complaints"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

The warranted service from Maytag was horrible. I went to the website listing the local Representative that handles the Nortek waranty. Maytag and Nortek both claim to have nothing to do with any issues. They just passed the buck. Maytag and Maytag cares kept telling me they would call…for 6 months. Then they sent me to Nortek Global. I spoke to a woman who kept telling me why they are not responsible for their listed Representative. ***** ******* then went on to say any complaints to Nortek go to her, from any department. I find that hard to believe, but if true there is zero customer service. She then blew me off and said she spoke to the original carrier from Jim Air. She then called me back to tell me they are not going to help me. I refused to listen to her. Jim Air had no one to help me and I am now contacting the corporate office and hopefully the president to let him know. Therefore; Maytag, Nortek warranty and Jim Air so far, none of them take responsibility and pass the buck. Do not believe you have a warranty, they do not care and blow you off with smug answers!
