Had unit installed a few years ago. After about one year, condenser coil started leaking. Apparently a common problem with the "Guardian" series. Had to replace it (with a Lennox unit)! Horrible!

"AC condenser works just fine"
Had Guardian (York) 3 Ton condenser installed into old r22 system three years ago. Unit works fine, hums along pumping out that cold air night and day.

"So far a good system for our home"
We've had it for about 8 months now. We had one minor issue with it under warranty but the serviceman came right on out. No major issues. The servicemen spent their time installing it, which I think helps with issues. Wish the electric bill would have come down some, but basically, it stayed about the same. I figure at least it is not higher. Works excellent on pushing the cold air out and we have a 10-year warranty for parts, which makes me feel much more comfortable having bought it. Overall, I'm satisfied.

"So far, so good."
The house we bought a year ago had the original, 15 year old systems still on and they were in not so great shape. First year we had multiple mechanical calls - thank goodness for home warranties! Our most recent experience was with Dr. Cool here in Vegas and the tech recommended the Guardian unit that is made to work with the older equipment but is more efficient. It saved us about $5000, because all the other components are fine, just the coils and some other parts on our older units were worn out. So far, so good. We get cooling with a quiet system (which is located right outside our master bedroom) and hopefully the energy bill will reflect the change up. We have very little humidity here so perhaps that is why some other customers have had issues? The system is backed by Johnson Control so I would expect a quality unit. I hope others with a good experience will sound off...and if something goes wrong, I'll be back to let y'all know.

"PIECE OF CRAP"
My Mom who is in her 90's built a granny suite. Had to buy new A.C. unit since old 1 too small. Piece of crap started to freeze up and blow hot air. Been happening since almost the start. Don't buy this is, in my opinion, elder abuse.

From day 1 nothing but trouble. Freezes up all the time, compressor has quiet working after only 3 years. You get what you pay for, Guardian is junk do yourself a favor and buy a Lennox. I'm having a Lennox installed tomorrow and throwing this junk in the garbage where it belongs.

Purchased one month ago, have nothing but problems the coil froze up twice. Now the a/c condenser motor will not start up it was shipped with a relay and hard start capacitor for installation that should have been my first sign that I was going to have problems. I have been in the residential housing industry for thirty years only have seen secondary capacitor put on a older weak motor never straight out of the crate. I would never recommend or install another guardian or (York) again complete garbage!!!!
