At Sam's Air Control, we proudly install American Standard HVAC equipment including furnaces, air conditioners and heat pumps. American Standard was founded in the late 1800s and originally produced toilets and other bathroom fixtures before eventually expanding into the heating and cooling industry. Today, American Standard ranks among the industry’s best HVAC manufacturers, and here are just some of the reasons why our company uses their products.
Quality and Reliability
American Standard has developed a strong reputation over the years for producing some of the highest-quality and most reliable HVAC equipment. One reason for this is that American Standard has some of the strictest and most thorough testing standards in the industry. Each new furnace, air conditioner and heat pump undergoes 2,600 hours of rigorous testing at the company’s Systems Extreme Environmental Testing (SEET) laboratory to ensure that they are built to last. During the testing, the units are subjected to extreme weather conditions to make sure they function effectively and efficiently in any environment. This testing has helped ensure that the company’s products work much better in extreme heat and cold than most any other brand.
American Standard products are among the very best in the industry, and this is evidenced by the numerous awards and recognitions the company has received. Consumer Reports and other research and testing magazines continually rank American Standard as one of the very best in terms of both product reliability and customer satisfaction. In fact, Consumer Reports readers have named American Standard air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps as the most reliable brand multiple times in just the past decade.
Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration (AHCR) News magazine, the leading HVAC industry publication, has also named some American Standard products like the AccuComfort Platinum 20 heat pump as the Gold Award winner in the residential equipment category in the organization’s annual Dealer Design Awards.
Affordability and Excellent Value for the Money
Another great thing about American Standard is that the company is strongly committed to providing top-notch quality products at an affordable price. Some American Standard HVAC products do cost slightly more than other brands, but you also get what you pay for. Nonetheless, if you’re on a tight budget, you can find some American Standard products that are among the most affordable options on the market.
Of course, affordability doesn’t mean all that much if a product isn’t built to last, which is why it is also important to consider what type of value you’re actually getting for your money. Luckily, this is another area where American Standard excels. Consumer Reports regularly tests and reviews the top nine brands of HVAC equipment, and American Standard furnaces, air conditioners and heat pumps have all repeatedly been ranked as the very best in terms of value for money. Consumer Reports also ranks HVAC brands in terms of the percentage of units the company produces that are defective, and American Standard is also one of the brands with the lowest defect rates.
Excellent Warranty Options
American Standard also provides some of the best warranties in the industry on all of their new units. The warranty will cover the cost of any parts that fail due to a manufacturer’s defect for a certain length of time. If you make sure to register your new unit’s warranty within 60 days of when it was installed, you will be eligible for the company’s Registered Limited Warranty, which usually covers the unit for a full 10 years. Even if you fail to register the warranty within 60 days, you will still be eligible for the Base Limited Warranty, which will usually cover the unit against any defects for a full five years.
It is important to note that these warranties only cover the cost of any parts that fail due to a defect and not any associated labor costs, but this is standard across the entire HVAC industry no matter which brand you choose. However, American Standard does offer the option for you to purchase different Optional Extended Warranty plans through your dealer, and most of these plans will cover the cost of both parts and labor should your unit ever fail due to a defect. Some of these plans also have a longer length so you can ensure your unit is protected for more years.
Made in the USA
American Standard has numerous manufacturing facilities spread out across the country, and all of the company’s HVAC products are exclusively made in the USA. This is yet another thing that makes the company stand out as many other brands produce some of their equipment in China and elsewhere in the world. When you choose American Standard, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you’re helping out our country’s economy, protecting American industry and giving back to hardworking Americans.
Strict Installation and Service Standards
Another thing you should know about American Standard is that the company has much stricter standards for its qualified installation and service providers. Any company that is certified to install and service American Standard products must meet very specific requirements to prove that they are up to the company’s high standards. As an American Standard-approved installation company, Sam's Air Control and our certified technicians have the skills, experience and knowledge necessary to ensure that your new equipment installation is done properly and the unit functions just as it should. We can also assist with your yearly preventative maintenance needs, which is important as the warranty on your new unit will only stay valid if the unit is professionally maintained every year.
Extensive Range of Available Options
American Standard produces an extensive range of furnaces, heat pumps, central air conditioners and ductless mini-splits. This makes it easy to find exactly the unit you need and one that will heat or cool your home effectively while using the least amount of energy possible. You can choose from single-stage, two-stage and variable-speed units, which will make a difference in how long the unit runs, how much noise it makes and how energy efficient it is. Single-stage units are best if you’re on a tighter budget, whereas two-stage and variable-speed units will be quieter and use less energy. You can also find American Standard units available in a wide range of SEER, AFUE and HSPF ratings, which means you have a variety of options in terms of overall energy efficiency.
