Haier Product Lines
Although Haier started as a refrigerator manufacturer, their air conditioners and furnaces are some of the most popular on the market. Haier makes its products with a focus on design and cooling ability. Here’s a closer look at their HVAC product line.
Haier Air Conditioners
There are two types of Haier air conditioners:
- Portable ACs that can be rolled into any room in the house.
- Window air conditioners that must be mounted on a window.
Haier portable air conditioners
Their top of the line portable air conditioner, the 13,500 BTU unit can cool and heat a large room up to 600 square feet. It has a built-in dehumidifier to keep mold and mildew under control. Three cooling settings and three fan settings can adjust the comfort of a room efficiently and can be commanded with a remote control. All Haier portable ACs come with a one-year warranty. The HPND14XCT, MSRP $589, is the cooling-only version.
This AC and heater produces 12,000 BTU of cold air and 11,000 BTU of heat to cover a room of 500 sq. ft. It has a 24-hour timer so you can set when it runs. The HPC12XCR, MSRP of $469, is the cooling-only version.
This unit is designed for average-sized spaces. 10,000 BTUs can cool rooms up to 250 Sq. Ft. Like all Haier models, it also dehumidifies. It comes with a reusable, washable mesh filter, so you save on replacement filters.
This compact model is designed for small spaces. Its 8,000 BTUs cools, circulates and dehumidifies the smaller rooms in your home.
Haier window ACs
Haier sells 17 window air conditioners for every size room. 14 of the 17 window air conditioners are ENERGY STAR Certified. All units have three fan and cooling settings, a remote control and come with a window installation kit. One feature of certain Haier air-conditioner units is their WiFi connectivity, so you can control your AC from your smartphone or by Google Assistant or Alexa. All come with a one-year warranty. Here are four of the most popular.
The most powerful of the window units with 23500 BTUs of cooling power. The unit comes with built-in WiFi connectivity and is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant. 26.25” wide and 141 pounds.
With many of the same features as the 24DX, the main differences in this unit are its lower price point and smaller number of BTUs – 18000.
This unit produces 11,600 BTUs and comes in a smaller size of 20.125” wide and 78 pounds. It features three fan/cooling speeds and WiFi connectivity.

Haier offers a furnace line for professional installation. Pricing and purchase is available through your local HVAC dealer. There are two gas models in the line:
Offering powerful heating between 54k and 108k BTUs through a multi-speed motor while also hitting an incredibly efficient 95% AFUE, this model is the best choice for cold U.S. climates. It’s available for upflow, downflow and horizontal installation and complies with California NOX requirements. It comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on parts and a Lifetime Limited Warranty on the heat exchanger.
The HG80 series ranges between 35k to 135k BTUs and come in at 80% AFUE. This model is less expensive and best for milder climates. Construction is similar to the HG95 and can also be installed in three positions. The HG80 has the same limited parts warranty and a 20 Year Limited Warranty on the heat exchanger.
Haier heat pumps
Haier manufactures heat pumps using two types of refrigerant:
- R410A environmentally-friendly refrigerant
- Freon, known as R22
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is phasing out freon by January 2020 so look for R410A refrigerant models.
There are four heat pumps available using R410A. They’re all fitted with a scroll compressor and achieve a SEER rating of 14 and an HSPF of 8.0. The main difference is their BTU capacity between 24,000 and 60,000. They can all be installed for horizontal or downflow. Haier Heat pump reviews mention the 10-year limited compressor warranty and 10-year limited parts warranty.
