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.
I have had problems with my unit every year. I keep it in great shape and there is problem after problem. Warranty is terrible. They do not pay for labor, only to replace parts, but there are huge labor expenses to detect the problem each time. Do not buy this unit. It is junk.

"2 Amana units in my new home that have broken now for the 3rd time"
In less than 2 years, we have changed the coils in both units of the house in the attic. Had a leak day one of the purchase of the house, another leak, last summer and this summer, both units went out. Coils in attic rusted within one year and the other within 18 months of the purchase of the house. Now, the big unit for the main part of the house is out. Coils outside are now no good. Compressor spit oil all over. They only want to replace the coils. This unit was the first to have a leak day one of the sale of this new home to me. I would never ever buy nor recommend an Amana to anyone. We always had Trane at our other homes and never once encountered a problem in the 9 years I owned one house and the 6 I have owned my condo. Amana sucks and particularly Capital a/c who intalled the units in the new house and has done the return work on them since buying this house.
"Great Product, Great Warranty. Pick the right Company to install it!!!!!"
The most important choice when you buy a new air conditioner is the company not the brand!!!! Even the over priced Tranes will have tons of trouble if not installed by a good company that follows all the procedures. If a load calculation is not the first thing a contractor does before he gives you a price…MOVE On. you get what you pay for! I had an Energi Air (Amana) split gas system asx1436 with 80% furnace by a good company and have been nothing but satisfied. They were about $1500 higher than my other bids but again, you get what you pay for. I have 10 years parts and labor with this company, and found out through the load calculation they performed on my home that I needed a 3 ton system and not the 2.5 ton that I had. All the other "professionals" with the cheaper priced product quoted me a 2.5 ton, offered only 1 year labor, and did not do a load calculation. It was worth every penny I spent. choose the right company, not the brand.
"Hot Summer? Not in my house"
I can't believe what I just read about how bad Amana units are because I know better. This is my third summer with my new asx14 a/c unit with a amh95 gas furnace and I can't tell you enough how great it is. So quiet and energy efficient. Its over 103 degrees outside and my control is reading 73 inside. I am fully convinced that not only choosing the right equipment but also the installation is just as important with a quality installed duct system. The quotes that I received were thousands difference. But I read ever estimate carefully. I found a very detailed contractor that put everything in writing. His price was upper middle but I felt confident with them. The low price estimates had no details at all. When I ask for them to put more details in writing they just said "Trust me im the air conditioning man" I figured cheap price cheap job? I am retired now and don't have the extra money to waste. Do it right the first time. I feel that I got what I paid for.
"The best unit ever"
Our new unit asx14 came with lifetime unit replacement warranty and in addition I must say that this unit is so quiet its amazing. I can say it is as quiet as my fridge. I am thiking all of these bad reviewer had either had unprofessional instal or its maybe who has something against amana.
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.
