STAY AWAY FROM GIBSON CENTRAL AC UNIT

by KATHY E
(NEW PORT RICHEY, FL. USA)

THIS CENTRAL AC UNIT IS LESS THAN TWO YEARS OLD. IT WENT INTO A HOME THAT WAS A SECOND HOME AND HARDLY USED UNTIL RECENTLY.


NOW THE COIL HAD TO BE REPLACED SINCE THE AIR WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY AND CAUSING EXCESSIVE ELECTRIC BILLS TRYING TO COOL. PROGRESS ENERGY DID A HOME ENERGY CHECK FOR ME AND FOUND THAT UNIT WAS MY PROBLEM.

COST ME LABOR TO HAVE THE COIL REPLACED. ABOUT A MONTH OR LESS LATER, I HAD NOT HEAT.

NOW ANOTHER MAJOR PART HAS TO BE REPLACED WHICH IS COSTING ME LABOR AND SHIPPING.

THIS CENTRAL AC UNITS WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME FINANCIALLY WITH LABOR AND SHIPPING AND ELECTRIC BEFORE THE 5 YEARS IS UP.

I AM SURE I WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING UNIT IN 5 YEARS DUE TO WARRANTY UP AND OTHER HVAC UNITS ARE GOOD FOR 10.

THIS IS A TWO TON CENTRAL AC UNIT THAT ONLY HAD TO HEAT AND COOL 500 SF.

THERE ARE MANY OTHER REVIEWS OUT THERE THAT I JUST READ THAT HAVE ALL NEGATIVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT GIBSON. I WISH I HAD KNOW THE GC WAS LETTING THAT GO IN.

MY BAD FOR NOT ASKING AND ROYALLY BEAT NOW.

My house has two gibson units in it and both have had multiple problems. I will never have another one of their products as my primary unit on either level.

Great Centra Air Units
by: Greg

I've had almost every type of central ac unit installed over the years. i now solely use Gibson, even in my personal home.

spending more money on other name brands will only get you a different name (and many times a lessor warranty). Don't buy by name, buy by quality/warranty!

Central air units last 3 day
by: Dadan

Hey, JN

Sorry to hear that. Is the master plumber installed the Gibson central ac unit. Does the master plumber have a HVACs contractor license? This is the first time I heard of central ac unit only last for 3 day. I wonder if it is manufacture defective or the master plumber.

Gibson Central Ac Unit worked for 3 days
by: J. Need

I am sitting in my hot house waiting for the master plumber, who convinced me to purchase this to return to fix this. It worked for 3 days. Fortunately, I have not paid him for it yet.

So, when he shows up, he will be taking it out. He gave me no information for it, no written estimate. I joined Consumer Reports to see if they had a review on Gibson HVACs; it was not mentioned.

When I questioned the plumber, he told me about the warranty. Big deal, it is hot now and I need a functioning air conditioner, not a warranty for a unit that only functioned for 3 days.

I agree
by: Anonymous

I agree. I bought a brand new unitin 2005 and have had less than a combined 4 mos a usage. Every year I have multiple service people out to try to repair this unit. Right now I have an old window unit in my bedroom window, but the rest of the house is as hot as heck. Stay away from Gibson if you can.
