American Standard AC Features

In this section we’ll describe on some of the key features and the performance of the American Standard Air Conditioner.

American Standard air conditioners offer 3 different product lines. The Silver Series, Gold Series, and their top line, the Platinum Series.

American Standard Silver Series Air Conditioners

Single-Stage, 13 SEER to 16 SEER models. This is their basic line, and in our opinion, the one to have. They are basic, hardy and reliable.

American Standard Gold Series Air Conditioner

Multi-Stage Compressor, 17-18 SEER model. This is their mid-grade line, and they only offer one unit in it, the Gold 17, which sounds like a Rebel callsign from Star Wars. It offers higher-efficiency than the Silver Series, with a multi-stage compressor.

American Standard Platinum Series Air Conditioners

Variable-Speed Compressor, 18 & 20 SEER models. This is their top-of-the-line air conditioner line. Platinum 20 Series offers AccuComfort technology, which constantly varies the efficiency of the unit to meet your needs. A nice feature, but in our not-so-humble opinion, it is unnecessary, and expensive when it needs to be fixed.
