    typical today of many units not just aaon. this is what happens when you sell boxes, not quality

    Those are the good ones.

    The heat exchangers are made of such thick metal they will last forever.

    Aaons aren't so bad, at least they give you room to work in the electrical compartment unlike york for example. I sure do love those 6(8?)" wide electrical panels or the exposed, live 480 main feed terminal block right below the control board buttons.

    You don't like the 50 pre-stripped screws?

    Even when the rest of the unit has rusted away.


    Oh and :welcome:

    I have units that are 25 years old that are no name brands. Then I have 2 year old aaons which every part was replaced in. Inducers are a money maker for them.

    It's true start up was a disaster on these aaons. But if you call for parts or support they send you back to the start up company that screwed it all up. So aaon is to blame 100%

    I had a inducer fan fail last week. The 900 dollar kit is 1 week out. Then I'll rewire the 460v to run 230v. If I keep adding transformers to the control housing soon there will be no room.

    we move them to an external box. too congested in their panels. btw, reps are supposed to sell you parts on request. setup on their controls is easy if you have the book and know what its designed to do.

    seriously dude - we could go on and on about different brands and their quality or lack thereof. I would venture to say 90% or more issues with new units are related to start up poor install poor duct work poor design of the duct work or other non equipment related issues
