Armstrong Air Air Conditioner Overview

Air conditioners manufactured by Armstrong are efficient and quiet units, and many carry ENERGY STAR ratings. These air conditioners use the manufacturer’s MHT technology, an efficiency-maximizing system designed to evenly draw air through the coil to create the greatest surface area for heat transfer. All units have swept fan blades and quality sound reduction. The Microban drain pans used in these units contain an antimicrobial agent prohibiting growth of mold and bacteria.

Reviews by Air Conditioner Series

SCU10 413LE

Armstrong Air AC series and models

The Armstrong Air company launched in 1928, offering high-quality heating and cooling systems to consumers with high expectations. Meeting those expectations involves the use of durable materials and the incorporation of innovative technology. All units feature a 10-year limited warranty, which further ensures the company stands behind their brand. Armstrong Air features three types of air conditioners, including two-stage, variable-performance and single-stage models.

Armstrong two-stage air conditioners

Armstrong’s two-stage air conditioners operate longer, providing cooling at lower capacities than their single-stage counterparts. They also readily operate at higher capacities to maintain indoor comfort in extreme heat. These units are equipped with a communicating control board, making them Comfort Sync compatible.

When coupled with the Comfort Sync thermostat, the units benefit from non-stop operation monitoring that leaves the temperature at a comfortable average. Also, the system can detect and email repair and maintenance needs to the homeowner and dealer. Some of these two-stage air conditioners also come with “Integrated Compressor Protection,” which consists of high- and low-pressure switches for quality, reliable operation.

Armstrong Air variable-performance air conditioners

Armstrong Air features variable-performance air conditioners that get their name because of their variable-speed compressors. Much like a dimmer switch, they match the unit’s heat load with the compressor’s speed and adjust incrementally.

When consumers match these units with an Armstrong furnace, they can increase their home’s cooling performance. That performance amplifies even further by adding a Comfort Sync A3 thermostat.

One of the biggest benefits of a variable-capacity performance air conditioner is its variable-capacity inverter scroll compressor, which uses small increments to cool rather than turning the unit completely on or off.
