Frigidaire has a limited warranty that guarantees if the compressor goes out in the first ten years they will replace the entire outdoor unit. Frigidaire continues to use copper for the condenser coils while many other manufacturers are going to aluminum for the condenser coils. Copper is generally preferred because of the ease of repair if it becomes damaged.
Top of the Line Model | Frigidaire Air Conditioner Reviews
The top of the line system is designed to modulate from 40% to 118% of its rated capacity. When properly controlled in a properly sized system this air conditioner will run based on demand. This is excellent versus the old systems which would run at a single speed and then satisfy and shut off.
While the top of the line Frigidaire will run longer it will also save you money because it is running based on demand. The old systems run at 100% and then satisfy and shut down. They do this over and over again using a lot of energy on startup. The frequent startups are also hard on components, especially motors.
