New Coleman Echelon Two-Stage, up to 19 SEER AC Offers Contractors Flexible Options

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The Coleman brand of Johnson Controls now offers a new two-stage, Energy Star-certified Echelon Series air conditioning unit, which can save up to 47 percent on energy use compared to older 10 SEER units. Available in 2-5 tons, this new system meets rigorous energy-efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The AC19 air conditioner, which can be sold as part of a complete Echelon residential system or as a premium upgrade to an existing system, provides contractors and homeowners flexible options by matching it with either a variable speed air handler or a standard ECM air handler. Matched equipment includes furnaces, coils and air handlers, all of which are optimized to work together, maximizing comfort and overall performance.

Units can be installed with a conventional two-stage thermostat or the communicating Wi-Fi-enabled Echelon Hx Touch-screen Thermostat, which allows remote monitoring and diagnostics using the Hx Pro App. The system also has the ability to communicate with competitive controls for additional installation flexibility. Other features include:

  • A smaller footprint that allows the unit to fit into compact spaces without sacrificing performance
  • A swing-open electrical box that provides full corner access to the inside of the unit for easy maintenance, installation and service
  • An advanced WhisperDrive Sound Reduction system which includes swept-wing fan, high-efficiency ECM fan motor, sound enclosure and composite base for quiet, efficient air circulation

Coleman Echelon Series AC19 units include a 90-day Labor Limited Warranty, Lifetime Compressor Limited Warranty and 10-year Parts Limited Warranty on registered outdoor units.
