The Amana ASX 14 is a single-speed air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 15 SEER.
The ASX 14 features a heavy-gauge galvanized steel louvered cabinet. It is coated with a post-paint finish that makes it resistant to weather damage. The cabinet is designed with both top and side access panels to allow for easy maintenance, and the filter dryer is factory-installed for operational longevity. A PVC-coated wire grill protects the fan and motor.
This line of air conditioner has a single-speed condenser fan motor. It employs Smart Coil condensing coils with aluminum fins and copper tubing. It also is equipped with Copeland Comfort Alert Diagnostics, which detect the cause of problems and relay the information to technicians via LED indicator flash codes. The high-efficiency Copeland scroll compressor is covered by a sound control top of high density foam.
My husband and I spent over $10,000 on 2 Amana a/c units for our 2 story house in the spring of 2013. The larger unit that controls the downstairs is a 5 ton 16 seer and the smaller unit that controls the upstairs is a 2 ton 15 seer. We had problems in 2015 with the smaller unit not running and there was a problem with the coils being bad and they were changed out. Now it is 2017 and the same problem has happened again. We have been out of ac upstairs for 2 weeks now as we are waiting on Amana to send the coil replacement. Their explanation to our ac repair company as to the delays is that they did not have enough replacement coils made up. So what if they have a so called replacement warranty if you spend a lot of time with no ac and have reoccurring issues with their problem systems. We live in Florida so our upstairs is now in the mid 80's! If only we had known. Steer clear of this company and their junk.
"Would not recommend"
I paid way too much for this unit. I got the unit through Covert Aire, they recommended this model to keep my rental unit that is only 1250 square feet cool. I purchased the unit in 8/2013 along with a 10-year warranty. It stopped working at 10:30 last night. I was told by the tenants that it fails to keep the small unit cool when the temperature goes over 90. It will only cool to 80 degrees. Would not recommend Amana.

"Good quality unit"
I've been a contractor for over 16 years and have installed and serviced all the major brands. Amana has been the least problematic unit over the years. I know you all have heard this 100 times but installation is key! You can buy the most expensive, highest SEER rated AC, but if it's not put in properly it will fail. My warranties on Amana are far less than the big name brands. Parts are easy to find when needed and when the system is out of warranty the parts don't cost an arm and a leg. They're basic units and not over engineered, which I love as a service tech. I have an 8 year track record with them and probably hundreds installed and have great luck with them!
"I Have 2 ASX14 Seer Amana Systems"
I have 2 asx14 seer Amana systems in my home. They are great! Much better than the Trane- junk they took out. My electric bill also went down almost half! I had my contractor Triskele management 732-709-7770. They have installed my house and 3 of my friends' house here in New Jersey. The contractor knowledge has a lot to do with it. Not the equipment.

"Very Happy with Purchase"
Spent $7,500 for my 14 seer unit and everything has been great. I know it seems that so many reviews said this was bad equipment, but I have had zero issues since 2010. Amazing how everyone goes with the cheapest installed price and then claims the equipment is bad. Pick you installer correct and the equipment runs great!
On other HVAC discussion boards, the warranty of the Amana ASX 14 is applauded by technicians, one of whom writes on hvac-talk.com: "We believe that this maybe the best warranty in the air conditioning business." The homeowner who is pricing various systems and their warranties points out the cost of the labor warranty for the Amana was a fraction of the cost of the same warranty on another brand.
The Amana ASX 14 is covered by a 10-year parts limited warranty. Registration must be completed within 60 days of installation in order to receive maximum warranty coverage.
