The new product line is available for YORK®, Luxaire®, Coleman®, Champion®, Fraser-Johnston®, Guardian® and Evcon brands.

The new systems meet the DOE required 14.3 SEER2 cooling efficiency targets as well as the EER2 requirements for the southeastern and southwestern U.S. regions. Expertly designed, engineered and rigorously tested, these air conditioners offer the latest in energy savings and lasting performance for years to come.
