Note: Before you dive into the specific brand review, we highly recommend you to read our elaborate Central Air Conditioner Buying Guide in advance, there are several crucial steps you need to take before you even start to think about the brand.
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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
-Charles, 10 years Heil dealer
Heil is not that famous in the heating and cooling market. People know Trane, Carrier, Goodman but seldom talking about Heil, Ruud and Armstrong which actually are all trusted brands. 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.

Brand & Model & Size
|$3,050||Heil HC4A||Indian Trail, NC||2990 sqft|
|The Heil I have hasn’t given me any trouble and I have had it for 6 months now. I replaced the Carrier I had which I used for 17 years and this is a perfect replacement. The cooling is good and I haven’t had to deal with any repairs so far just routine checks to make sure everything is okay.|
|$1,109 unit only||Heil DX 1300||Alpharetta, GA||2670 sqft|
|I like Heil air conditioners because you don’t have to worry about anything if it is installed right. The one I have now runs so noiselessly and I like the fact that the utility bill stays low. Thank you Heil the ac is just what I thought it would be.|
|$2,350||QuiteComfort DXT+ 15 SEER||Brownsburg, IN||2100 sqft|
|When I moved in to this new house one of the first things I changed was the air conditioning. The I found here was not working right so the cooling couldn’t go below 770. Now I have Heil and everything is working perfect. It’s been 7 months since I got it and so far am pleased with its functionality. It hasn’t given me any headaches. I read reviews about the air conditioner breaking down or malfunctioning in some way after 3 months. I guess I got a sweet deal from Heil.|
|$2,730 installed||Heil DX 16 SEER||Chicago, IL||2350 sqft|
|Anyone who wants a new air conditioner installed in their home should check out what they can get from Heil. I can assure you that you will like what you get. I have had my current ac system for a year and a half and I’ve only called the repair guy once and the problem was due to poor installation. Heil is a brand I stand behind because their customer service is great, they deal with customer queries fast. It took under a week to come and fix my problem and I haven’t had any complains since then.|
|$2,190 installed||QuiteComfort DXT+||Tallahassee, FL||2200 sqft|
|The value of a good ac system is not in the price it’s in the performance. When I was looking for a replacement for my old Trane I looked through the internet to see what people were saying about the models out there. Heil came highly recommended and so I did a little more research so I could make an informed choice. So far the purchase has proved to be worth it. Our old system couldn’t cool the house efficiently after years of service so I had to replace it. Heil has provided me with something that does a better job at cooling, am looking forward to the next summer.|
|$3,690||HC4A 14 SEER||Springfield, IL||2900 sqft|
|The ac has a problem; it’s probably poor installation because I bought the unit 5 months ago surely it still has some years left in it. It functioned well for the first 2 or so months and then it just couldn’t cool the house below 720. It’s hot and the air coming through my vents is not helping much to make the place cooler. I hope the company or the dealer can do something about this because it is covered by the warranty.|
|$749 Unit||DX 1300||Antioch, TN||1900 sqft|
|Don’t bother buying these air conditioners, get anything else but Heil. I bought the unit I have about 2 years ago and since then it has cost me well over $1,000 to fix. The coil is the most recent part I have had to fix. Poor design.|
