When you hear the name Coleman, you probably think of rugged outdoor equipment, like lanterns and camp stoves. Or maybe you think of the Coleman pocket stoves that over 1 million GIs carried with them during World War II. But did you know that the Coleman company actually entered the HVAC business all the way back in 1958?
To begin with, Coleman specialized in designing and manufacturing HVAC systems specifically for mobile homes. Today, the Coleman HVAC brand has grown to offer a full line of equipment, including gas furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, ductless mini-splits, thermostats, and indoor air quality products.
Plus, they still offer a line of heat pumps and air conditioners designed for use in manufactured homes. Like Coleman’s legendary outdoor equipment, Coleman HVAC systems aim to provide rugged, reliable, high-quality service, but inside your home instead of a tent!
Coleman takes pride in being a homegrown, American brand. Their HVAC products are designed, engineered, and assembled in the United States. Over 1700 people work at their facilities in Kansas and Oklahoma.
Coleman stands behind their products with strong warranty protection. For instance, in addition to a 10-year parts limited warranty, most Coleman LX series residential heat pumps come with a 10-year compressor limited warranty. Even more impressive, their premium Echelon series heat pumps come with a lifetime compressor limited warranty. Some of their heat pumps come with a 1-year labor limited warranty as well.
Coleman offers a wide range of options in their residential HVAC products. Their available heat pumps range from a basic 13 SEER all the way up to a high efficiency 20 SEER rating. And their gas furnaces range from 80% AFUE all the way up to a very high efficiency 98% AFUE. Many of their higher efficiency units have EnergyStar certification.
Coleman is a brand name that we tend to associate with lanterns, not air conditioners. But Coleman has actually been a name in the HVAC industry for 60 years, particularly for homeowners seeking rugged, reliable comfort solutions for mobile and manufactured homes.
