From the ultra-efficient Echelon Series to the more wallet-friendly Comforteer line, Coleman offers a wide selection of heat pumps for a range of homeowners' needs. All of Coleman's heat pumps advertise whisper-soft operation.
What are the 10 Best Heat Pumps?
For consumers looking for high-performance heating and cooling, Coleman offers the Echelon series. With up to 18 SEER and 10.0 HSPF, both units in this series–the HC8B and HC6B–meet Energy Star requirements for energy efficiency.
This series' two-stage heating operates on a low stage until the system detects a spike in temperature. Two-stage heating also means few temperature swings, increased air circulation, and little noise when turning the unit on and off. Coleman's WhisperDrive system contributes to operation as quiet as 69 decibels.
Coleman's mid-range LX series offers up to 15 SEER and 9.0 HSPF. Similar to the Echelon line, all models in this series–the THJF, THJD and THJR–are Energy Star-qualified.
Additional components of the LX include a permanently lubricated fan motor, coated-aluminum fin with copper tube coils, coil protection between the grill and condenser, and a raised fan coil guard for quiet, efficient operation.
While the Comforteer is Coleman's most basic series of heat pump, it still offers energy efficiency ratings up to 14.5 SEER and 9.0 HSPF. This series is manufactured in two models, the THGF and THGD, each of which has unit options ranging from 1.5- to 5-ton capacities.
Like other Coleman models, the Comforteer Series features a rust- and corrosion-resistant exterior and quiet operation using a sound-isolated motor, tough top panel and cushioned compressor mount to reduce vibrations.
Care and Maintenance
Coleman recommends an annual inspection by a licensed contractor to ensure maximum performance. Homeowners also are encouraged to regularly clean and inspect the unit's components, including the compressor, fan, indoor and outdoor coils, and refrigerant lines.
Every Coleman is equipped with a standard 10-year warranty on parts and compressor. To receive the full warranty, the unit must be registered online within 90 days of installation. Failure to register the product decreases the coverage term to five years.
