Maytag HVAC Review

maytag-hvac-reviewMaytag is manufactured by Nordyne. Nordyne also manufactures Frigidaire, Tappan, Philco, Gibson, Intertherm, Miller,  and Westinghouse. Nordyne produces their products in tiers, and Matag is at the top of the list as their highest quality brand. Nordyne has a good reputation for their technological innovation. In our Maytag HVAC review, we’ll give you an overview of what you can expect from a Maytag unit.

Maytag Pricing
In terms of pricing, Maytag tends to be pretty competitive with Goodman. Nordyne is looking to expand into this class of HVAC system. If you’ve been looking at Goodman, add Maytag to the list of brands you’re comparing and see how they stack up. Any time you do a comparison between brands, be sure you’re comparing equivalent items. In addition to the cost of the system, be sure to ask about installation, duct work, electrical work, permitting, delivery and sales tax.

Maytag Offerings
Maytag offers a wide variety of HVAC components and systems.

  • Air Conditioners – Several models to choose from including their new iQ Drive in a 24.5 SEER Series.
  • Heat Pumps – Get up to 22 SEER with Maytag’s great lineup of heat pumps.
  • Furnaces – With 97+ AFUE along with the iQ Drive, these furnaces can be a great value. Not to mention stainless steel doors!
  • Air Handlers – Variable speed and available for multiple applications.
  • Full Systems – Whether you want to combine a heat pump with a furnace or if you need an electric and gas pack, Maytag will have you covered.

Warranty
Unlike other HVAC manufacturers, Maytag offers a 12 year limited warranty instead of the typical 10. They also offer their “Dependability Promise” which guarantees to replace the whole unit should a major component fail. In order to take advantage of the warranty, you will need to register it with Maytag within 60 days of the installation. You can register via mail or online.

Finding the Right Unit
HVAC reviews are a great way to get an idea about any unit or system you’re thinking about purchasing. Consumer information about brands and models are a great way to see what is making folks happy and what isn’t. Another good source of recommendations is a local, licensed HVAC professional. An HVAC contractor sees how units in the field perform over years and years. They’re in a good position to tell you what brands will give you good service and which won’t. An HVAC installation professional can also help you determine what size of Maytag unit will work most efficiently in your home.

Installation
Once you decide on a unit, make sure to have it installed by a professional. While a quality Maytag system will help you with heating and cooling your home efficiently, at least half of the efficiency of your system will come from quality workmanship. It doesn’t make sense to pinch pennies on installation work if it means getting a substandard job that will ultimately cost you far more in increased fuel costs.

Maytag offers a good product for a reasonable price. Talk with a few local HVAC professionals, read reviews and do some comparison shopping to see if it makes sense for your home and family.

    What kind of price range is the 4 ton 24.5 IQ drive unit ? Along with the 22 seer air conditioner.
    Also, how does it compare with geothermal same size (4 ton).

    My family built a new home in 2008. We purchased a rather high end maytag unit(s) on the advice of our HVAC contractor. The 12 year parts and albor appealed to us as well as the stainless steel shroud. We were told of the integrity of the product and the business themselves. WRONG!!! Very little warranty and complete let down of the company. Our HVAC contractor will not service the units as he says there is no coverage. Started having problems in 2011. Now have lost the coil, the fan, motor and the compressor. Over 2600.00 in repairs. Warranty will pay about 750.00. Maytag will cover NOTHING but the advertize a 12 yr on the compressor. DON’T BUY THIS EQUIPMENT. It was already rusting out.
