Coleman, a subsidiary of Johnson Controls, is no stranger to making HVAC systems, and the Coleman Central Air Conditioner is no exception. Compared to other Coleman air conditioners, this particular Coleman air conditioner is an odd man out; it\u2019s a small unit intended for RVs rather than homes, aimed to provide air conditioning to small mobile vehicles instead of full-sized houses. If you\u2019re looking for a home AC, you\u2019re looking at the wrong unit; even among Coleman\u2019s own lineups, you\u2019re better off looking at the Coleman LX series or Coleman Echelon series (particularly the Echelon AC21). If you are indeed looking for the best central air conditioner for an RV, though, this one\u2019s got you covered.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Coleman Central Air Conditioner\r\nThe Coleman Central Air Conditioner is an environmentally friendly, energy efficient Coleman AC unit aimed at RVs. If you need a central AC for your RV, it\u2019s one of the best air conditioners you can buy, though it obviously can\u2019t compare to other Coleman AC units if you\u2019re looking for something for home use.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhile it can\u2019t compete with a proper home AC unit like the Amana Air Conditioner or Goodman Air Conditioner, for its intended purpose it\u2019s fine. Though it\u2019s heavy, it\u2019s a compact unit that does a fine job in cooling RVs down, doubling as a heater to boot. So long as you keep your expectations in check and use it for its intended purpose, you\u2019ll have no complaints here.\r\nEnergy Efficiency\r\nThough Coleman gives no official figures, one can deduce that the Coleman Central Air Conditioner is at least a somewhat efficient unit. It employs a two stage compressor design with a very nifty feature: it can operate in single stage mode when cooling demands are low, saving drastically on power. This, combined with its compact size, leads to efficient operation. It\u2019s not going to compete with something like the Carrier Central Air Conditioner, but it\u2019s not intended to do so.\r\nFiltration\r\nAs expected of an AC unit, filtration is handled via a filter drier on the Coleman Central Air Conditioner. This allows the device to filter particulate matter out, and it increases overall lifetime durability. The filter part of the filter drier filters, as expected, while the drier keeps condensation and moisture out of the unit, keeping the internal tubing from freezing over.\r\nDurability\r\nDurability is fine on the unit. The installed filter drier extends the unit\u2019s longevity by a wide margin, while the unit\u2019s design in general shows no obvious faults. Because it\u2019s intended to be run in an RV, it\u2019s unlikely it\u2019ll be exposed to the elements, and it has no faulty components or design.\r\nValue\r\nCompared to a home AC, the Coleman Central Air Conditioner is unsurprisingly a poor value proposition given its complete lack of manufacturer-specified efficiency ratings and general lack of manufacturer-provided information at all. It\u2019s not meant for home use, though; it\u2019s meant for RVs. As a portable unit (or small room unit), it\u2019s fine; it\u2019s a bit on the pricey side, as you\u2019re paying a premium for that portability, but it gets the job done.\r\nColeman Central Air Conditioner Wrap Up\r\nFor its intended use case, the Coleman Central Air Conditioner is a good product. It\u2019s not the greatest thing since sliced bread, and the complete lack of manufacturer information is frustrating both for the consumer and for the reviewer, but it\u2019s a solid unit that works well for keeping an RV cool. If you\u2019re in need of a replacement unit for your RV or you\u2019re unhappy with the unit you currently have installed, it\u2019s a decent buy, but if you\u2019re looking for a home unit, look elsewhere.
