Overview of the FRCS
The Coleman FRCS is an Energy Star-approved condensing cooling unit with SEER ratings ranging from 14 to 15.3, when matched with compatible equipment. This unit, a discontinued part of the Comforteer series, is designed to be paired with a Coleman evaporator section and homeowners are encouraged to match this system with a variable-speed air handler and furnace for maximum efficiency. The FRCS uses R-22 refrigerant.
Manufactured in seven models, this series offers a low profile and is available in upflow, downflow and horizontal configurations. All units feature copper tube and aluminum fins, internal protection for the compressor against high pressure and temperature, and top air discharge and other parts designed to muffle operation sounds.
The FRCS also boasts quick installation and maintenance with easy to access components and simple power and control wiring connections, according to the manufacturer. The permanently lubricated motor-bearings also are designed to contribute to low maintenance.

"Losing "Freon" charge every year"
Worked great first year, then needed Freon recharge. Has needed recharge annually for 4 years, but keeps us cool thru summer. Contractor just informed us that Coleman will be replacing coil at no charge.
Other FRCS Reviews
The Coleman FRCS has received few reviews of any sort on other online homeowner and consumer forms. Despite the lack of comments about this unit, Coleman has several reviews regarding its more recent HVAC products. Both homeowners and contractor seem to be pleased with the company’s cooling units.
In general, homeowners consider their Coleman products a quality piece of equipment. Some reviewers on gardenweb.com even note these products’ quiet operation and efficiency. Similarly, contractors on hvac-talk.com recommend Coleman air conditioners to shoppers, stating these systems are built well and the Copeland scroll compressor helps ensure quiet operation. An additional warranty for the compressor is another perk of this unit.
