Payne PA13NA Central Air Conditioners

Payne PA13NA Air Conditioner Overview

The Payne PA13NA is a split system air conditioner with an efficiency rating of 13 SEER. It features a single-stage scroll compressor and a copper tube/aluminum fin coil designed for optimal heat transfer. The unit’s specially-designed fan blades and rubberized isolation pads help reduce noise levels, while externally located brass service valves and a single access panel provide easy serviceability. The prepainted steel cabinet features a galvanized coating underneath and a layer of zinc phosphate for a weather resistant finish, and all cabinet screws are rust-resistant. Payne’s previous 13 SEER air conditioning unit was the PA13, which has been discontinued.

Very Unsatisfied

We have replaced (1) motor,(2) compressors. These units are a piece of junk, I would not recommend these units to anyone. Be prepared to spend and spend.

$5600.00 spent. One day short of one month since the install and after less than one week of 95 degree weather the unit froze and stopped working. Thought maybe this was an unusual occurrence but after reading the reviews it seems the unit recommended to us by m&m Mechanical was money down the toilet – do not get burned like we did – do not buy this Payne air conditioner & heat pump if you want something that will work!!
