Reviews by Air Conditioner SeriesJS3BC
Gibson 15/16 SEER
The Gibson 15/16 SEER air conditioner can achieve a SEER of up to 16, as the name suggests. The 15/16 SEER is a two-stage system that operates with variable speed to give the homeowner comfort throughout the cooling cycle. The Gibson 15/16 SEER utilizes R410-A refrigerant. The unit housing is steel to protect the parts from the elements.
Gibson 14 VS SEER
The Gibson 14 VS SEER operates using single-stage technology, combined with variable speed. The addition of variable speed provides more comfort than a base model air conditioner. This unit also comes with R410-A coolant. The Gibson 14 SEER has a SEER score of 14, and is also protected by steel housing.
Gibson 13 SEER-14 SEER
Gibson’s base model is a fixed speed, single-stage system. This air conditioner can achieve a SEER of up to 14. The exterior of the unit is steel. The Gibson 13 SEER-14 SEER is the only air conditioner available with either R410-A coolant or R-22, which depletes the ozone and is being phased out of production.
Care and Maintenance of Gibson Air Conditioners
A yearly inspection by an HVAC professional is suggested for optimal performance. The air conditioning unit should be installed with a matched air handler in order to qualify for all warranty guarantees.
The customer must register the warranty online within 60 days of installation. All parts are covered for 10 years. If the compressor fails within the first year, Gibson will replace the entire unit. The local Gibson dealer may offer extended warranties; customers can ask the installing technician for this information.
