Heil ac buying guide

Note: If you’re just beginning your research into central ac units, then our Central AC Ultimate Guide is the best place to start. Also, our AC Sizing Calculator can help you find a relatively accurate size quickly. Many issues are caused by an oversized or undersized AC.

Heil offers a wide variety of reliable air conditioners, having been in the market for more than a half a century now. Over this period, Heil has been able to acquire and retain customers in the market. The prices of Heil ACs vary from one unit to another depending on the capacity and the efficiency of each unit. However, irrespective of the price, Heil air conditioners offer reliable performance and are widely accepted by consumers all over. Heil focuses majorly on the comfort provided by the air conditioner as well as the efficiency. The warranties from Heil are as well exceptional. The main series of ACs from Heil include the Heil DXT+, HC4A, Heil DX, and Entry models

Unique Features


Its SEER rating measures the effectiveness of any air conditioner. The SEER of the AC is the measure of its cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient a unit is. Heil offers air conditioners of up to 19. The Heil Quiet Comfort DXT+ Observer Air series of AC is an example that has an energy rating of 19 SEER. These are the top best air conditioners from Heil. They offer high efficiency and save utility bills by huge margins.

Communication System 

Heil air conditioners are equipped with Observer communicating technology. This type of technology enables the components of the system to coordinate their processes properly. As a result, efficiency is maximized as well as the overall durability of the unit. This technology is beyond standard thermostats, the technology by design adjusts for best performance as well as efficiency. It also gives a signal during maintenance time and or when filters need changing.

Cooling Capacity

The size of an air conditioner is measured by the tonnage of the unit. As the load increases so do the size of the AC. Heil air conditioners have a broad range of capacity ranging from one to five ton. The higher the capacity of a unit, the higher the price as well as the efficiency. To know the right size for your home a Heil contractor must do a load calculation to determine the proper sizing.

Note: Higher SEER is not Better. Finding the best SEER is a bit tricky but our SEER Savings Calculator can help you find a suitable SEER based on your location.

Model Recommendation

Heil Quiet Comfort DXT+

This is a two-stage series of ACs that offer excellent efficiency. This model is among Heil’s top-selling high efficient models that are most suitable for warm weather conditions, areas where extreme temperatures are rather rare. It is prudent to pair the two-stage cooling of this unit with a variable speed blower to achieve maximum comfort.

Best Cost-Effective Heil Models For You

As we have discussed in our central air conditioner guide, the SEER is the most important parameter deciding the initial equipment cost and future energy savings.

Higher SEER Models can not always pay your money back. We developed a SEER Savings Calculator to help find a better balance between equipment cost and electricity cost. This tool can automatically load your local power rate and yearly cooling hours when using Chrome explorer. You can also adjust these inputs manually to get a more accurate result.

Contractor Feedback

Heil air conditioners are durable because most of them are made of galvanized steel. Heil offers air conditioner unit for any price range that one can manage to pay for. The company has manufactured rather cheap yet unfailing solutions for all their customers. This is convenient especially for consumers who desire comfort but their budget and purchasing power is a bit low. Also the warranty terms of Heil are reasonable and much favorable as compared to warranties from other brands in the market. This is helpful especially to consumers buying the top notch Heil’s air conditioners.

Heil is not that famous in the heating and cooling market. People know Trane, Carrier, Goodman but seldom talking about Heil, Day and Night which actually are from the same company of Carrier. Heil rarely do any marketing promotion and that’s why the Heil’s price is lower. If you can choose a good contractor to do a qualified installation, it can runs normally for 10-20 years. Finding a trusted installation contractor with rarely promoted brands is always a good choice.

  1. I have a heil unit AIR conditioner that was installed around 2009-2011. I’ve had problems with it leaking Freon, coils freezing and water dripping onto my carpet. Does this whole unit need to be replaced? Is it under a recall? How long is my warranty?

  2. I have a Heil air conditioner. The GE motor 1/5 HP quit working. Service Experts in Raleigh N.C. has charged me $99.00 to diagnose the problem. Now they are planning to order a oem condenser motor and charge me $608.00. Also he plans to change the capacitor run and charge $147.00. I feel like these charges are high. I would think a motor would cost under $200 and a capacitor under $20. What is your opinion?

  3. I just got six estimates from a local AC contractor (Orlando, FL area): three for Trane and three for Heil. Complete system install including outside condensor unit, inside air handler, new refrigerant lines, and some relocation of the lines.
    Trane: 18 seer = $10,800; 16 seer = $6710; 14 seer $5813.
    Heil: 16 seer (2 stage compressor) = $7494; 16 seer (single stage compressor) = $5463; 14 seer = $4780.

    Contractor seems decent and well-established. I’m probably going to go low dollar. Plan on selling this house in six years.

  4. We have had our Heil unit 30 years, and it is finally time to replace it. We have had to make very few repairs that were low cost over this time period. We will be purchasing another Heil to replace this unit.

  5. Can someone tell me if the latest Heil 2-stage HVAC has issues in manufacturing? I just had a new outside unit installed. Cools great. Electric usage is way down. BUT on low speed, the AC sounds like the agitator in mom’s 1952 Maytag washer. Additionally the bedroom is 2 rooms from the outside wall and at night you almost need earplugs to sleep. Installer says ALL Heil 2-speed units sound like that. A friend of mine says its because the plenum is hooked directly to the unit and then to the brick on the home. He thinks there should have been a rubber insulator between the unit and the plenum. I would appreciate any thoughts.
