Reviews by Air Conditioner SeriesS3QC
Nordyne is behind various technologies such as iQ drive, which emphasizes efficiency and low sound production. Other features of the Nordyne line include ecoLogic products with efficient, environmentally friendly features and Microchannel (Anteater) evaporator coils designed to prevent corrosion. The company also uses Demand Flow Technology, a quality assurance system that involves triple checks throughout the manufacturing process followed by a computer test guaranteeing product reliability. In addition, Nordyne claims that it produced the industry’s first inverter ducted system.
Nordyne iQ Air Conditioners
Nordyne says that it produces some of the industry’s quietest and most efficient air conditioning units, reaching up to 24.5 SEER. Many of these iQ models, whether packaged or split systems, come with a dehumidification mode and inverter-rotary technology that makes constant adjustments for around-the-clock indoor comfort. Finally, Nordyne’s iQ models have a communicating thermostat for accurate maintenance scheduling and assistance with diagnostic information.
High-Efficiency Split-System Air Conditioners
Many of these quiet, two-stage units reach from 14 to 16 SEER and are Energy Star-rated. Additional features are the corrosion-resistant jackets and aluminum Micro-Channel coils. A swept-wing fan blade and one-piece top design help reduce noise.
Standard-Efficiency Split-System Air Conditioners
Nordyne manufactures 13 SEER standard-efficiency split system units, some of which are manufactured with a two-stage Ultra tech scroll compressor. These quiet, maintenance-free units have corrosion-resistant jackets and coil guards, as well as durable hail guards for dependable protection from weather-related damage. The units are designed for easy maintenance-access.
Packaged Air Conditioners
Nordyne-made packaged gas/electric units reach from 13 to 15 SEER and 80 percent AFUE. Many of these units hold the ecoLogic Green Seal. Optional backup heat in the form of an electric strip that can produce 20 kW of heat is available in most models. A swept-wing fan blade provides quiet and efficient operation. Corrosion-resistant Anteater MC Micro-Channel coils are available, and all packaged units come with a coil-protecting wire guard and rust-resistant hail guard. To enhance corrosion resistance, a 1.5-mm-thick salt-spray finish coats the jacket.
Each brand name offers warranties on its own products, and Nordyne oversees warranty coverage and rebate incentives. However, in general these air conditioners’ warranties average about 10 years. Product registration is encouraged for full warranty benefits.
