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.

Comparable Models by Continental
Model Comparison by Features
In terms of available features, the Continental 14 SEER air conditioner offers many of the same qualities as the rest of the brand's high-efficiency cooling systems. The main difference between the 14 SEER unit and the superior 16 SEER unit is that the latter offers Canadian homeowners a higher cooling capacity of 19,100 BTU/h.

The Continental 14 SEER air conditioner is able to deliver effective cooling distribution for almost any Canadian home. Thanks to its reasonable price as a mid-range option among Continental's air conditioners, the unit is great for those Canadians who are seeking a high-quality system that won't break the bank.
