Heat Pump Ratings part 9, A Repairman Reviews The Brands...

Heat pump ratings part 9 continues our expert and unbiased reviews with a look at the Ecologix, EverRest Elite series, and EverRest Extreme Comfort brands.

BRAND--------BASIC-PREMIUM-ULTIMATE

ECOLOGIX------<1*---------NA---------NA

This brand is made and sold in Canada. The units are designed for cold climates and have digital communicating controls. The variable speed compressor is located on the inside of the home which is different and could cause noise issues but it is inside of a well insulated cabinet. Their website is not much help and does not have a stated guarantee for their products.

EVERREST ELITE SERIES--1*--5*------5*

These units are made by GOODMAN MANUFACTURING which is a part of DAIKIN GLOBAL. The ASZ14 models are basic 15 seer heat pumps with an average warranty. They have louvered metal panels to protect the outdoor coil and use smartshift technology for quieter operation. 

The ASZC16 series offers premium heat pumps with the ability to communicate with the rest of the home's HVAC systems. They also have a two speed condenser fan for quieter operation and are backed by a very good warranty. The AVZC20 units are their entry in the ultimate class. They have a variable speed condenser fan motor as well as compressor for very efficient and quiet operation. They are backed by an industry leading guarantee but are only available through authorized dealers. 

EVERREST EXTREME COMFORT-1*-5*--NA

These units are made by GOODMAN MANUFACTURING which is a part of DAIKIN GLOBAL and are sold through dealers in the USA. 

The GSZ14 models are basic 15 seer heat pumps with an average warranty. They have louvered metal panels to protect the outdoor coil and use smartshift technology for quieter operation. The DSZC16 series offers premium heat pumps with the ability to communicate with the rest of the home's HVAC systems and a two speed condenser fan for quieter operation. They are backed by a very good warranty that includes lifetime coverage for the compressor which is the heart of the system. They do not offer a unit that fits the criteria for our ultimate category as they do not offer a unit with a variable speed compressor.
