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

DiamondAir----<1*-----NA--------NA

This brand is manufactured for sale on the internet. They offer basic air conditioners with durable scroll compressors but the warranty is not very good. 

DUCANE-----1*--------NA--------NA

This is a brand from ALLIED AIR ENTERPRISES INC. which is a LENNOX INTERNATIONAL company.

The 4AC14B series units are good basic units that have a reliable scroll compressor. They have a 16 SEER efficiency which meets all of the latest regional efficiency standards but use a wire mesh coil protection which does not actually protect the condenser coil very well. The brand is usually sold by dealers of other Lennox brands as a cheaper alternative to their premium brands.

Ducane 4AC14B

ECOX---------<1*-------NA---------NA

This brand is available in the USA, Latin America, & the Caribbean. The EVCU is a basic 16 SEER unit with a durable scroll compressor. Their website does not have a stated guarantee for their products.

These air conditioners are made by GOODMAN MANUFACTURING which is a part of DAIKIN GLOBAL.

The ASX13 models are basic units with scroll compressors and a compressor blanket for quieter operation. They have ComfortAlert onboard diagnostics and a louvered steel coil guard but only an average guarantee.

The ASXC18 is a premium unit with the ability to communicate with the rest of the home's heating/cooling systems. The unit also has a two speed condenser fan for added energy savings/quieter operation and is backed by a very good warranty. The AVX20 model is their entry into the ultimate category and it has an efficiency rating up of to 24 SEER as well as an ECM fan motor for years of reliable service.
