Good: Napoleon offers a good warranty package that at 10 years protects consumers for the majority of their air conditioner’s life span. All central air conditioners are made in Canada, supporting the Canadian economy.
Want: Greater model selection with higher SEER. With only three central air conditioner models available, Napoleon offers the least variety in their mid-range brand tier. With a moderate-efficiency 16 SEER as their best model, they don’t stack up competitively next to their most closely priced, direct competitors whose maximum SEER rating is as follows:
Since they are a Canadian company, it is likely that they do not offer these higher SEER ranges because they are not as necessary for a Canadian climate. Another alternative would be for Napoleon to offer some more ENERGY STAR certified central air conditioner models, which can qualify for government rebates.
The Bottom Line: Napoleon delivers Canadian consumers with a well made, economy to moderate energy efficient central air conditioner. At a higher price point, they are more expensive than their direct competitors when it comes to their comparable models, however, they are a domestic product which accounts for their higher cost. When you buy a Napoleon central air conditioner you are supporting Canadian jobs.
