“We bought this house 3 years ago and it had a 15 year old heat pump that was probably about a 6 SEER in terms of cooling. The energy bills were ridiculous but it wasn’t in the budget until last fall to replace it. And I only did that after I had a retired HVAC guy from church look it over really well and tell me he thought it had “maybe a couple” years left “if I was lucky”. I was looking for a very good deal on a unit with good efficiency – though without paying the top prices of super-high efficiency models. I’ll likely be transferred in 3-5 years and don’t want to spend money I won’t get back. I got heat pump prices quotes on Goodman because I like their warranty and on York as well as on Coleman. I was pretty sure I was going to go with the Goodman unit until I did some checking on the company. I won’t go into detail, but no one I spoke to had good things to say about the crew that does the installation – rude, noisy, and worse was what I heard. Our second choice was the Coleman because York is a really nice product, but high-end and more than we wanted to spend.
I checked up on the Coleman company and crew and there were no red flags. I signed the deal and had them install the Coleman LX THJF central heat pump along with a matching air handler. Long and short, they took 2 days to install it and then showed me how everything worked. They did a good job and the unit has run well. Heating bills were down significantly – though included as part of our total electricity bill I can’t say for sure but I’d estimate the heating part was down 35-40%. If I see the same results with cooling I’ll be happy. Here is the price I paid for the entire system:
2 ton Coleman LX Series Model THJF 14.5 SEER central heat pump: $1,699
Matching air handler with variable speed fan: $1,469
Installation: $3,300. Total: $6,468.
Now I don’t have to worry about the unit breaking down in the middle of a hot and humid Kentucky summer – with my wife expecting and our 4-year old having mild asthma.”

Protect your Investment
Homeowners who cut corners on installation to save money often pay more in the end. An improperly installed unit may void the warranty as well as damage the unit and keep it from operating at peak efficiency. It makes the most sense to hire a qualified contractor with the skills, experience, tools and equipment required to handle the complex tasks of installing, testing and adjusting an entire system for maximum performance. Have a pro do it and you’ll save more money over the lifetime of the system.
