The Coleman LX is an energy efficient heat pump with an efficiency rating ranging from 13 to 14.5 SEER and up to 9.0 HSPF. A raised coil guard and improved compressor technology provide efficient, quiet operation, and a filter drier protects the refrigerant system and extends the life of the compressor. The environmentally-friendly refrigerant R-410A is used by all LX models. Select models of the LX carry the Energy Star logo.
I am very pleased with my Coleman Heat Pump. It has been installed for three years with no problems. It heats and cools without any repairs. I have had it serviced annually and that is it. Yes I would buy from Coleman again.
"Coleman saved me."
Coleman has been a blessing. I own eight different rental properties and have used different companies and different brands over the years. Everyone of the units except for the two Coleman Heat Pumps have had one issue after another. I purchased two Coleman's in 2013 and have not had a single problem. I was talking to the Coleman Dealer the other day about replacing the air conditioner in another rental property and it dawned on me how reliable the units have been and how many problems I have had with the other brands. I felt a need to praise a company for a job well done and for the peace of not being bothered every other week.
I have only had the unit since January 2018 and have not had to use the system very long so I cannot make an accurate rating of the system. So far I really like the system and how quiet it runs and the warranty that is offered for a small fee.

Installed in 2012, this unit has had more repairs in 4 years than my old 15 year old heat pump had in its whole life. Poor installation initially caused a loose electrical connection within 3 months, then low Freon caused a heat outage later that winter which subsequently caused the compressor to shut off without changing the thermostat because of too much Freon. That took them 6 trips and multiple parts to figure out. The air handler motor, an X3, burned out the next year and had to be special ordered from the factory and now, one year later it has burned out again. What would you bet that there's none in stock? If I hadn't bought the parts and labor extended warranty, I'd have replaced this long ago with something not made by Johnson Controls.
The heat pump fit our house and works great. Saved $$$ on my electric bill. I would buy this product again.
Comments on hvac-talk.com state that the LX is a good lower-end unit, but not up to the likes of Carrier and Trane. A consumer on doityourself.com was not getting enough hot air from his Coleman LX until he bypassed the thermostat, which led most members to comment that it is a thermostat wiring problem and not a problem with the unit.
