Tappan is a manufacturer of heating and cooling products, including furnaces, air conditioners and heat pumps. Tappan is a brand name of Nortek Global HVAC, a subsidiary of Nortek, Inc. In 2014 Nortek Global HVAC had net sales of approximately $569 million, which accounted for 22.3% of Nortek's total net sales.
In 1881, in Bellaire, Ohio, W. J. Tappan sold his wood- and coal-burning stoves door-to-door. During the World Wars, the Tappan company supplied cooking equipment to the U.S. armed forces. In 1955, Tappan introduced the microwave and revolutionized cooking. Five years later the company invented electronic ignition for stoves. Tappan became SJC Corp in 1979. In 1998, the Nordyne group, under license from White-Westinghouse, revived the Tappan name. In 2015 Nordyne changed its name to Nortek Global HVAC.
Tappan's Tech Series furnaces, air conditioners and heat pumps are targeted to the energy-conscious consumer. Tappan gas furnaces have up to 97 percent AFUE and come with Beckett burners and permanently lubricated motors; the units function quietly. Tappan's highest performing air conditioners can reach 25.5 SEER and feature sound levels as low as 59 decibels. Promoted as easy to maintain, these units are finished with thermosetting powder coat paint for durability and resistance to scratches. The service parts are externally accessible.
Tappan promotes a number of green features among its highly efficient HVAC units; the "ecoLogic" seal refers to the company's highest tier of efficient products. Other features include iSEER, which boosts the cooling efficiency, and the iQ drive.
