In order to help homeowners shop for furnaces and air conditioners, we developed our own proprietary algorithms which weigh a range of criteria and factors to provide an easy-to-compare grade (e.g. B-, A+, etc).
Warranty Grade: It can be difficult to know which brands and models offer the best warranty coverage, particularly because a lot of the key details are hidden in dense warranty documents filled with hard to understand legalese. Thankfully for you, we’ve carefully studied them and created this grading system to account for things like the length AND quality of their guarantee, coverage restrictions and more!
Overall Grade: This grade weighs key factors like efficiency, ENERGY STAR certification, comfort, noise level (for A/Cs), our warranty grade, and more.

The Continental 13 SEER air conditioner achieves a SEER rating of up to 13 thanks in part to the unit's high-efficiency single-stage Copeland Scroll™ compressor.

Backed by Continental's extensive warranty coverage, Canadian consumers can sleep easily knowing that their investment is fully protected. Meanwhile, the air conditioner's environmentally conscious compact design lets you sleep guilt free.

Comparable Models by Continental
Model Comparison by Features
The Continental 13 SEER air conditioner offers Canadian consumers the same range of top of the line components that are found within the brand's other products. Homeowners can enjoy whisper quiet performance thanks to the system's swept fan blade design, lubricated PSC motor, and high-efficiency Copeland Scroll™ compressor.
Model Comparison by Price
Despite utilizing many of the same premium components as higher-end Continental air conditioners, the 13 SEER unit can’t guarantee the same rate of long-term savings. This is due to the unit's limited cooling capacity of 18,900 BTU/h. However, Canadian homeowners will still be thoroughly satisfied with the budget-friendly unit's overall performance and affordable price tag.
Model Comparison by Tier
Found at the bottom of Continental's range of high-efficiency products, the 13 SEER air conditioner offers the lowest SEER performance rating of all available products. However, in terms of comparable efficiency and quiet operation, Canadian consumers will find that the 13 SEER brings just about as much to the table as its higher-end counterparts.
