All about American Standard AC System

American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning has been providing home comfort for over 100 years, and American Standard air conditioners are built with that comfort in mind above all else. To them, home comfort isn’t just temperature, but also cleaner air, energy-efficient, and dependable and long-lasting. When shopping for an American Standard unit, their knowledgeable customer care dealers can provide information, but you can read about the basics here.

SEER Levels

Knowing the SEER Level of the air conditioning unit you’re looking is important to consider, as the higher SEER Level, the more cost efficient your AC will be. As the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Level, the SEER is a rating of the ratio of how much energy an air conditioner uses to maintain the air temperature. The hotter climate you live in, a higher SEER Level can make a big difference in your energy costs compared to a lower one.

American Standard AC units fall within a 13.5-22 SEER Level, satisfying or surpassing the government standard.

Cleaner Air

With allergens, dust, pollen, pet hair, dander, mildew, lint, and fungus in the air, there’s a chance they will make it into your home. With American Standard products, you can rest easy knowing that the AccuClean filtration system will remove up to 99.98% of allergens from the atmosphere.

They can also provide valuable moisture to the air, providing cleaner and healthier air to your home.

Durability and Dependability

American Standard AC units are built with a long life in mind. As such, they use quality materials, innovative features, and durable construction to give you a product to provide comfort for years to come.

All products are backed by independent dealers, with extended warranty options to give you additional coverage in the event your system needs maintenance. There are even several resources and plans through American Standard that can help inspect your air conditioner to keep it in top shape.

Sound Level

The highest quality American Standard AC units have a decibel level of 4 dB below the nearest competitor, providing quiet cooling to your home. All air conditioners are designed with soft operation in mind.

Cost Range

Depending on the model, American Standard AC model cost from $1300-2500 for just the unit, while the value of installation and unit can go from $3800-6400, varying on the model and size. The average cost of air conditioner and setup is around $4350.

Additional Innovations

American Standard air conditioners are also built with unique technology developed to enhance your air conditioning experience further.

AccuComfort Technology

The high energy efficiency of American Standard models is thanks to their AccuComfort technology. In standard air conditioning, the compressor will run its output at a constant pace, often resulting in your home feeling too cold while the AC is running, and too hot when it’s not.

With AccuComfort technology, the compressor is adjusted at minute intervals, providing an even temperature and keeping a constant climate in your home.

This variation helps reduce energy costs and even allows your air conditioner to adjust the temperature to within a half degree of your thermostat setting.

Control System

All American Standard AC units operate on an electrical control system, digitally monitoring your air conditioner’s operation to maintain accuracy and efficiency. They also have inbuilt troubleshooting systems, which make it easier to keep your system running.

AeroQuiet II System

The AeroQuiet II system is responsible for American Standard’s low sound levels. They average around 70 dB, no louder than typical conversation, keeping the operation noise to background levels.

AccuClean Air Filtration

Keeping in line with their dedication to providing cleaner, healthier air, select models of American Standard air conditioners contain their AccuClean Air Filtration. The filter uses collection cells capable of capturing particles as small as .1 micron. These cells are also reusable and can be cleaned with a vacuum, preventing filter replacement costs and making maintenance easy.

Nexia Specific models are also compatible with Nexia, a smart home system. By having Nexia connected with your air conditioner, it’s possible to adjust your home temperature through the mobile phone app or any other web-enabled device, providing effective temperature and energy control on the go.

Models

Across all models, you can expect the energy star ratings, high SEER levels, and even environmentally friendly refrigerants in the cooling process.

The Platinum series models are American Standard’s highest quality, all equipped with double stage compressors and variable speeds. They are all Energy Star Rated and have the highest SEER levels.

The Silver series models are the most affordable models and only have single-stage cooling. However, they are still Energy Star Rated and provide consistent and energy efficient cooling for a lower-range budget.
