Good: Hands down, KeepRite has one of the best, comprehensive warranty packages available in their economy-priced brand tier, exceeding many of the brands in the mid-range priced and premium priced tiers. If you’re looking for a brand that stands behind their product and protects your investment you will want to take a closer look at a KeepRite high-efficiency air conditioner.

Want: The highest SEER that KeepRite currently offers is 19 SEER.  Although 19 SEER is a very respectable high-efficiency air conditioner, it would be nice to see KeepRite add some 20 SEER and 21 SEER models to their high-efficiency air conditioner product lineup. But at 19 SEER Canadians will still see a good return on their investment with savings on their energy bills.

The Bottom Line: As an Economy-priced brand, they are in good company with Goodman and York.  KeepRite offers consumers excellent value for their investment of $2400-3500.  Their limited 1, 5 and 10 year No Hassle Replacement™ warranty plans underscore their commitment to consumers in ensuring that they will enjoy their KeepRite high-efficiency central air conditioner for many years.

Detailed Review

Efficiency/SEER – 8/10

KeepRite CCA9 and CCA7 models are both ENERGY STAR certified, and the perfect option for consumers looking to achieve a higher level of efficient cooling in their home. With models available between 13-19 SEER, they have many low, moderate and high-efficiency central air conditioner options.  KeepRite 13 SEER models will provide the greatest energy savings for those consumers who are upgrading from older inefficient 10 SEER models.  For those looking for a more moderate efficiency level with greater energy savings 16-17 is an optimal SEER to keep you cool while cutting energy cooling costs during our Canadian summers.

At 19 SEER, the KeepRite CCA9 and CVA9 high-efficiency central air conditioner models are the highest SEER available in the Economy-priced tier, edging out Goodman and York, which both top out at 18 SEER.
