What we now know as the American Standard heating and air conditioning brand actually began all the way back in the 1880s. For over 100 years, American Standard has been making American homes more comfortable. And not just homes! In the 1960s when NASA needed to design safe, comfortable living spaces for quarantining Apollo astronauts after their return to Earth, it was American Standard that the space program turned to for help.

 

Today, American Standard is known for continuing that legacy of innovation, comfort, and reliability. In 2014, Consumer Reports reviewed the nine most popular HVAC brands, collecting responses from 55,000 readers and hundreds of HVAC contractors. American Standard dominated the competition, taking first place for reliability in all three categories—central air conditioners, heat pumps, and gas furnaces. Another measure of the dependability of American Standard is that the company was ranked highest in overall dealer satisfaction five years in a row, from 2006-2011.

 

American Standard’s air conditioners, heat pumps, and gas furnaces come in a wide range of models so you can find one that best fits your needs and your budget. Their Silver line is the most basic, providing efficient and reliable heating and cooling at a great price. The Gold and Platinum lines offer even greater efficiency with SEER ratings as high as 22 for the Platinum 20 Air Conditioner.

 

The Platinum models achieve super-high efficiency thanks to American Standard’s AccuComfort technology. AccuComfort variable speed technology allows the heat pump or air conditioner to run at exactly the right speed to maintain the comfort of your home. And that doesn’t just mean the correct temperature. AccuComfort also features advanced humidity control, so the humidity level of your home stays ideal even on those sweltering summer days.

 

If you’re looking for a brand with a long history of customer satisfaction and a reputation for dependability, American Standard just might be the right choice for your home.
