The Amana® brand

As the innovative manufacturer behind the world’s first walk-in cooler and the Radarange® microwave oven, the Amana brand has long been an American institution. And the same commitment to quality and innovation behind Amana brand home appliances goes into Amana brand heating and air conditioning equipment. In fact, we design, engineer, and manufacture all Amana brand heating and cooling systems with the goal of becoming the standard-bearers for premium performance, long lasting reliability, and a great match for your specific indoor comfort needs.

We carry the following Amana products: Heat Pumps, Air Conditioners, Gas Furnaces, Thermostats, Humidifiers, and Air Cleaners

If the heat pump system in your home is the primary source for heating and cooling your home, you may want to choose one that offers enhanced performance and reliability features. Several important factors are included below:

1. Compressor -The compressor is often referred to as the heart of a heat pump. This device pumps and compresses the refrigerant that provides the heating and cooling benefits of a heat pump. All Amana® brand high-efficiency units feature scroll compressors offering lower sound ratings compared to reciprocating compressors. Scroll compressors also contain up to 70% fewer moving parts. Amana brand energy-efficient models use a mix of scroll and reciprocating compressors optimized for the application.
2. Filter Drier — A factory-installed filter drier traps moisture and other contaminants in the liquid refrigerant that could be detrimental to the function and longevity of the heat pump. It is a standard feature on all Amana brand products.
3. Crankcase Heater — The factory-installed crankcase heater is wrapped around the base of the compressor and provides multiple functions. When the heat pump is shut down in colder ambient conditions, the crankcase heater reduces liquid refrigerant migration in the compressor shell by keeping the refrigerant at a temperature higher than the coldest part of the refrigerant system. System oil will generally migrate to the warmest part of the refrigerant system. By keeping the compressor warm the crankcase heater helps to keep oil in the compressor where it is needed. Not only does this protect the compressor but noise reduction is achieved by preventing liquid refrigerant accumulation in the compressor shell.

4. Accumulator — Designed to protect the heat pump compressor from the damage of liquid refrigerant flood-back conditions, an accumulator stores excess liquid refrigerant and only allows refrigerant vapor to enter the compressor. Basically, the accumulator acts as a storage vessel. By storing and converting outlet refrigerant to a vapor,  the accumulator protects against long-term damage to the compressor commonly called ‘slugging’.

5. Discharge Muffler — Similar to the muffler on the exhaust system of a car, the discharge muffler on a heat pump reduces transient conditions that cause vibration affecting the operational noise of a heat pump. A discharge muffler also helps to minimize the pulsations occurring between the cooling and heating modes of a heat pump. Mufflers on Amana brand heat pumps have been up-sized to minimize noise caused by higher operating pressures associated with the R-410A refrigerant.
6. Low-Pressure Switch — When the refrigerant charge or pressure in a heat pump system is low, this switch activates and stops the operation of the heat pump to minimize potential damage to the compressor. A heat pump system that is low on refrigerant will not provide adequate heating or cooling. Further, low or loss of pressure can cause freezing of the condenser coil which drastically hinders the performance of a heat pump. This silent guard stands ready to operate only when needed to help protect the heat pump’s compressor from damage.
7. Compressor Sound Blanket — The sound blanket insulates against the normal operating sound of the compressor. But not all sound blankets are created equal. Unless it’s constructed of high-density, thick foam and other materials, it may not provide the same level of sound insulation.
8. SmartShift™ Defrost Transition Control — This feature helps to increase compressor reliability and reduces the noise level during heat pump systems defrost cycles. When outdoor temperatures fall below freezing and the heat pump is forced to initiate a defrost cycle, SmartShift simply turns off the compressor for 30 seconds allowing the system pressure to equalize and then restarts the compressor. This seamless operation is triggered automatically, eliminating unwanted noise caused by heat pump defrost changeover cycles.
9. R-410A Refrigerant — Since this refrigerant does not contain chlorine, it is considered to be more environmentally friendly compared to R-22 refrigerant. Introduced in 1995, R-410A has helped to increase the durability and reliability of compressors.



The Million-Air Heat Exchanger is made of 409 stainless-steel tubing and is formed using a precisely engineered process. This unique manufacturing technology makes a long lasting heat exchanger. Before a heat exchanger design is approved it must pass the ANSI.Z21.47 test, which requires 10,000 successful cycles. In 1995 we began testing an Amana brand Million-Air heat exchanger and it’s still going strong with over 2.5 million cycles completed.


How the tubes in a tubular heat exchanger are bent is critical. Some designs simply bend the tubing, thus stretching the metal on the outside of the tube while compressing the metal on the inside. Our unique process carefully forms the tubing to create precisely placed wrinkles to reduce the likelihood of weak points in the metal. And the wrinkles have an added benefit: they cause turbulence inside the tube, forcing more heat to the tube walls for even greater efficiency.

DUAL-DIAMETER TUBING With dual-diameter tubing, heat transfer is maximized. As hot gases pass from the larger to the smaller diameter tube, the velocity of the gas increases. This helps to ensure the best possible heat transfer to the home.

MUFFLER JOINT TECHNOLOGY Where the tubes are joined together and to the vestibule panel, the Million-Air Heat Exchanger takes advantage of the properties of thermal expansion. The larger tube is drawn to a smaller diameter and fitted inside the smaller tube. During operation, the larger tube is hotter, and the joint actually becomes more solid. The same principle is employed where the tubes are joined to the vestibule panel.
