"Review of my Echelon Series Heat Pump and the quality and service it provides."
I have owned this heat pump for a little over a year. It works very well and it does get the job done. The quality of this product exceeds dramatically. I have never seen a heat pump that works as well as this one. The customer service is decent, not too much to complain about there. The only problem with this heat pump is the price! The price was extremely outrageous! If you are looking for amazing quality, this would be the heat pump to go with, but if you are looking for something affordable, this heat pump is not for you. I have never needed any work done with it or any repairs so far, so the quality after about a year is still as good as when I bought it about a year ago. Since the quality is so amazing, I would definitely recommend purchasing this heat pump, if you can afford it anyway.
"Coleman Echelon Heat Pump is the Best I Used"
I have owned the Coleman Echelon pump for about a year now. My old one quit working so I had to replace it. I searched around and this pump had great reviews. When I got it much to my surprise it was very easy to install and get going. This was a huge plus for me. I love when new products aren't complicated. It has worked perfect for the year that I've owned it. Being a Coleman brand, I knew it would be a quality product and so far it has stood the test of time. The only thing I did not like about it was the price. The price is a little on the expensive side. I will say this though, if you want quality results you need to buy quality products and spend a little more to get good quality. So far, I love it and would recommend this to anyone looking to get a high quality heat pump
"Always another grand"
Was great the first 3 years, other than the horrible noise from the condenser fan. Finally, at the start of the 4th year, the ECM controlled condenser fan motor and ECM went out. Surprised me that there was no warranty. 4 months later in the midst of August (hot) the compressor goes out. They say it was warranted for almost another $1000. That system should last twice that long without any problems. They say there were no warranty cards registered, that is the reason for the warranty problem. I never got a confirmation and that's what they require. Lesson learned.
What a difference this new unit makes! I went from constantly adjusting settings and vents just to be comfortable and now am cozy all the time with no effort! If it lasts near as long as my Coleman cooler, I will be a happy camper lol.
"Would buy a Coleman again"
We are happy with the new unit and very satisfied with the instillation.
When asked by a consumer to choose between a Coleman LX series or the Coleman Echelon, most who commented on hvac-talk.com chose the Echelon. Comments on gardenweb.com describe the similarities between the York Affinity and the Echelon, calling them internally identical.
The Coleman Echelon comes with a standard 10-year warranty on parts and the compressor. The unit must be registered online within 90 days of installation, otherwise the parts warranty reverts to a 5-year limited parts warranty. Other warranty plans can be purchased separately.
