"My personal heat pump"
I recently built a home and installed a Luxair heat pump. I installed this heat pump simply for the fact of savings on the energy bill. I am very satisfied with this heat pump because it performs well and the warranty on it is great. At first it was a toss up b/w a heat pump and electric heat only. After doing research and talking to people who have owned heat pumps I have heard nothing but good things about them. During the winter time the heat pump did a very well job of maintaining the temperature in my home and my electric bill was twenty percent lower than I thought it would be. Along with installing the heat pump I also installed a thermostat that will switch from heat to cool automatically. This has made life so much easier simply because I do not have to touch the thermostat during the night if it gets cold in the house. My experience with this heat pump has been great and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering building a home or changing out their old a/c system. I am currently thinking about tying my water heater into the heat pump because it can be used to heat your water also which will also help on the electric bill. If anyone would ask me what to go with, a heat pump would be the first thing out of my mouth.

"Piece of CRAP!"
Less than 4 years old and the local distributor doesn't have any ownership to the product, so i call the parent company JCI and they say they only replace the part (thank god it is under warranty) but will not help pay for the labor, now over 1100 dollars. This is why nobody wants to buy an American Made product. I plan on filling with the BBB and state AG.

"Unreliable and expensive circuit board"
My heat pump has been used for 5 years. The circuit board went out. The local supply house had three in stock. this doubtless shows the unreliability of the board. The board cost $300. That is totally outrageous for a circuit board.

"Evaporator coil starts leaking in 3 years"
Three years after the unit was installed, the evaporator coils started leaking. Luxaire replaced the coil but it still cost $500.00 for labor. Three years later the replacement coil started leaking. This time it cost $900.00 for the coil plus labor. The contractor that installed the two replacement coils said the leaks were due to manufacturing defects. The unit was purchased from Solar Supply in Hammond, LA. Luxaire said Solar had to initiate the process to indicate it was a manufacturing defect. This is necessary for them to replace the coil without charge. Solar would only say it was not a manufacturing defect, and it was out of warranty. So I conclude, Solar and Luxaire consider two coils in a row leaking freon after only 3 years is acceptable, and spending $1000.00 every 3 years is typical of their equipment. In the future, I will never buy anything from Luxaire, nor will I deal with Solar Supply.

Only 4 year old units. Have broken down 4 times costing me about 1700 dollars in labor cost. Warranty does not cover labor cost. DO NOT ever buy York/Luxaire brand.

We live in a new subdivision with approximately 300 homes and we have been in our home for 5 years. The unit worked fine for the first 2 years and ever since then we have been pouring money into it. In the 5 years we have had this, we have had to have a new coil, 4 mother boards and various other things. We will be replacing our unit soon and would not recommend a Luxaire to anyone.

"Luxaire a Lemon"
I have had terrible experiences with this unit. First two years, it worked fine. Then, a compressor burned out. The next year, the compressor burned out again. The third year, various sensors were installed. Seems like nobody knows how to fix these things. I spent $500 the first year, $480 the second year, and I just paid $460 for my most recent fix. My heating bills tripled for the two winter months each year. We are lucky the unit was still under warranty. I am so happy that warm weather is coming. Do not buy a Luxaire!!!!

I have had my Luxaire heat pump almost 4 years- the blower motor and fan condenser motor went bad at the same time; Not even 4 years and it's broken. Impossible to find someone to fix it while in warranty. Only the installer can do it and he screwed me. Install not even built to code I later found out. Frustrated. Very frustrated. May Luxaire go bankrupt. Oh, yeah, bitter too.

"Worst purchase ever"
We purchased a new heat pump with nat gas furnace back up in Oct 2006. The first winter, it was fine. At the end of the second winter/beginning of ac season, we had to replace the outside fan motor. The third winter, we had to replace the compressor. It began freezing over after the replacement and we were told this was normal. Now, the 4th winter, it has continued freezing over to the point that it is running constantly on back up heat even when the temp is in the 30's and 40'S. We have $400 in heating bills this month and my repairman had the nerve to tell me the inability for my unit to run properly has nothing to do with the high heat bills. Really???? It is costing as much to run this unit in the winter as it did to run the 47 year old monster we had previously. We wish we could rip it out and get something else, but we paid way too much for this one and the company certainly isn't going to make good on this lemon.
