The top tier Broan air conditioner at 20 SEER is a higher SEER rating than some geothermal heat pump systems. The IQ Drive system uses the same inverter technology that has been perfected in mini-split ductless air conditioner and heat pump systems. Inverter systems modulate depending on the load of the system with modulation rates from approximately 20% all the way up to 100% based on load or actual cooling demand for the air conditioner.

Have a Broan ac unit and it has been total junk, worse investment in my life. You don’t want to hear the truth
TOTAL JUNK PEOPLE, FAIR WARNING I INSTALLED 4 OF THESE UNITS AND HAD PROBLEMS WITH EVERY ONE. HAD TO REPLACE EVAPS AND CONDENSOR WITH OTHER EQUIPMENT WHICH I WILL NOT SAY. THIS COST ME AND MY CUSTOMERS ALOT OF $$$$$….DO NOT BUY THIS EQUIPMENT JUNK!!!!!!!!!!
We bought two Broan HVAC units five years ago. Pretty much like everyone else has said, we have had to have it serviced and parts replaced (with expensive out-of-pocket labor cost) at least every six months. Warning: Do NOT buy Broan! I just called a very experienced repair guy who’d never even heard of the Broan brand. Looks like we’re going to have to replace both units before the 10 year warranty expires.
I have a 9 year old Brian heat and air unit. Can’t find the replacement outdoor cooling coil. My contract has tried to get one. First time with a proplem Please help it’s been 2 week or let me know it can’t be found
In 2018 we bought the Broan Air Conditioner that also has Heat. Its less then two years old and we just had to have the Evaporator Coil replaced due to leaking. $ 800.00 dollars later and its still not cooling. The ac system was well maintained and I don’t think this kind of issue should already be happening. I would not recommend this brand at all..
Have had a Broan Gas Pack for almost eight years. The AC coil has been replaced twice. Refrigerant has been added too many times to remember. I would not recommend purchase of a Broan unit. due to so many AC problems. Coils were replaced under warranty but cost of refrigerant and aggravation in not knowing when it is going to quit working makes it a unit not worth investing in.
We build in 2014 and moved in late in the year. Have a Broan HVAC system and have had to replace both the outside and inside coil due to leaks. Coils were covered under warranty,however has cost several hundred as refrigerant and labor were not covered. Since the coils were defective, should that not have covered the direct results?? Corporate told me to “go back and read the warranty”. Bad business! Thinking of going to small claims court.
Broan is junk equipment! Do not buy Broan! The system I purchased is only 5 yrs old and I’ve have to replace the coil. The part is covered but not the labor. After spending 4 grand for the system now I have to spend over $500.00 for labor to replace the part.
I’ve had the Broan unit for almost 5 years and there always seem to be something wrong,it has nickel and dimed me with labor cost to repair parts that break down way too soon,if it were it not for the warranty I would have been better off purchasing a different more reliable brand.
After owning one for 2.5 yrs. I don’t know if I’ll be able to afford to keep it for another 7.5 yrs.(the rest of the 10 yr. warranty)

Purchased a brown air conditioner in 2012 so far they really had to replace different things for times and today now they’re having to replace a compressor the labor alone is $554 it seems ridiculous that lesson a five-year-old air-conditioner and so far I’ve paid about $800 in labor because they only cover labor for a year it’s a company in Daytona Beach Florida as adding a usual fee for a compressor replacement even if the reply is this a normal price $554 for a two hour service which is what they say it will take to replace the compressor
Broan a/c for my above comments for regarding the $554 service labor fee
Just bought a new 2 ton condensing unit. Got 10 year parts and 10 year labor warranty from a reliable local dealer.
I wouldn’t buy a BROAN heat pump or air handler if it was for free.I had one installed a year and a half ago and it already cost me over 2000.00 in labor costs bad leaky coils bad tdc valves the hole thing is a piece of junk. A installer named SUMTER AIR out of OXFORD FL. installed the unit wrong did not upgrade on bigger duck work because of a bigger unit and also bigger size copper tubing closed off a quarter of the feed to the house so he wouldn’t have to change the plendel size to fit the new unit, beware of who you get to install the unit.The joke of it all he is a tech installer for BROAN UNITS.If you live in THE VILLAGES IN CENTRAL FLORIDA STAY AWAY FROM SUMTER AIR AND HEATING he will leave you high and dry with service with your BROAN PIECE OF JUNK!!
Sir, with all due respect. I sincerely apologize for your experience with your Broan unit. I have been a Broan dealer for now almost 10 years. Based on what I am reading from your review your install, follow up on service and repairs, things could have been handled a lot different. I switched to be a Broan dealer because the back up that we receive from the Broan distribution company in our area. Our phone calls was always returned and emails was answered. I even had visits by our district manger over to the customers to insure that jobs was done right, after some major repairs was done to the system and let the customer know that they was took care of.
Best of luck, sorry for your bad situation with your Hvac system. I understand, no worse feeling than a hot house after a long day of work. Again best of luck.
I purchased a Broan 2.5 years ago and have had nothing but problems after yr. 1. Every summer I have to have a service call once a month. Ridiculous! If anyone knows of someone I can call to rectify this problem please do let me know.
My son bought a Broan three years ago. Unfortunately, it’s been under major repair several times. The latest is a coil leak, which will cost $1200. The Broan company doesn’t cover labor…., just parts after the first year. This isn’t an acceptable product and will send you to the poor house. A company that doesn’t stand behind their product should flat go out of business.
Sir, I am extremely sorry for the charge you received, and the service you have recieved. In which I would also have a bad taste in my mouth. The charge was a little bit steep. Old saying is product is only good as its installed, and return service goes a long ways also. Read your comment after reading the one below. Some companies like you mentioned, I do not understand why they are still in business. We strive for return business and good reviews to make our customers happy. Broan dealer now for 10 years, we receive excellent service, and because of that can do better in the field. Sorry for you bad experience with your Hvac System.
super cheap, crappy nordyne junk. mine is pretty much dead in 5 years even after major repairs. we’ve been robbed 🙁
