"It makes a better trash can than A/C"
The furnace "heat" function performs acceptably, but the a/c must be constantly "defrosted" - even in mild humidity conditions. The house is less than 2 years old and the a/c function has been hit and miss. When the a/c freezes, it generally takes about 12 hours to defrost and successfully restart. The interior of the furnace housing becomes quite wet and ice can be heard cracking when the a/c is shut off. I have found that this unit was made in China and production of the brand was terminated sometime before I had the house built. I would NEVER buy this brand (or replacement). Also, the series and model data are not on the furnace or its paperwork.

This system is junk! We built our house in 2008, and since 2008 we have had to replace breakers and a compressor. We use this unit maybe two times during the year. We live in northern Wisconsin and only need it randomly. The system is loud, extremely noisy with vibration, and does not keep up with the house at all. I have had it checked over, and they tell me it is the correct size for the house. I would never recommend this unit to anybody.

The Weatherking (seer 13, 3.5 ton) was installed in April 2009- but only the outdoor condenser unit. It was rather noisy, but seemed to work ok. Three years later in June 2012, the condenser fan burnt out. It was an $800 repair. On really hot summer days, the evaporating coil freezes up, so I must shut down the system for about 45 minutes. It's freezing up because my system is mismatched. The evap coil was made for the old seer 10 unit that the Weatherking replaced. The company that sold me the unit never bothered to tell me (or educate me) about having a fully matched system, so I can't say it is the fault of weatherking. I have to take blame in letting an unscrupulous hvac company do the work and being completely ignorant to hvac. Not no more!

"Weather king Garbage"
My house is 6 years old and of course the compressor in one of two 3 ton units has gone bad. In addition, a value on the system in the attic plugged and burnt the compressor up. I spent the $2000 to have the valve and compressor replaced and now some debris or something in the system is plugging the value and the system stops cooling. No big deal if you do not live in Casa Grande az like I do. iho, Weather King is garbage. Bummer.

We bought a 3300 square feet, two-story home seven years ago and it had two WeatherKing units. They were far from new and I expected them to need replacement at any time. Seven years later they are still performing well.

"THE WORST AC UNIT I HAVE SEEN"
I had Al's Heating & Air from Tuttle,Ok install this unit in 2008 and they have been out multiple times and checked it because it will not cool my house very well. The Owner keeps telling me that it is because I live in a mobile home. I live in a Solitaire Home and the Coleman they replaced did a great job of cooling my house. When it heats up to about 90 outside the unit will run all day long, if you drop the temp at the thermostat a couple degrees when it is still cool in the morning it takes about an hour to change the temp inside and kick off. I have been very patient with this contractor and product but now I have been pushed to a breaking point. The contractor wont even return my call so it is time to share my experiance with as many people as possible. I do not like anything about this product. I would never recomend this product or Al's H&A.

"Don't buy one of these."
This Weatherking unit came with a new Lennar home. It has rarely worked correctly. Chas Roberts hvac company has been out to repair it so many times that I want to scream. If you purchase one of these units you are nuts.

"23 years of great service"
My hvac contractor recommended a 3 ton Weatherking to replace my very low efficiency 18 year old Bryant as it was a 'universal' fit back in 1989. In all these years, the only problem was it twice needed a charge. And the sheet metal, which I kept waxed, has held up well. I keep the thermostat at a constant 75º during the summer (May-August) with the air handler fan always on. Now that I'm replacing the whole system, I can only say this has been one well made unit with an average cost of only $125 per month for a 1800 square feet home.

"Keeps on Going"
Just replaced a third compressor only capacitor. Machine has worked very well, except for the capacitors. Like changing brake pads on the car, normal wear and tear.g
