Advent Air Conditioners...

Shopping for a new A/C and a local dealer is pitching an Advent, says they are using or have bought rights to the use what was the Carrier rooftop units...Does anyone know about these units or have any experience with them ?

I've always tried to let a new product or vendor establish a track record of performance or reliability before I put my $$ with them.

Kevin,

Your dealer has given you incorrect information. Advent is manufactured by a very large CHINESE firm that also makes Voyager and Jensen brand electronics. THEY ARE NOTHING LIKE A CARRIER, and from what I have been told, they bear a striking resemblance to a Dometic Brisk Air unit right down to the shape and size of the shroud. There are currently no low profile units being produced.

For what it's worth, I would stick with the known, proven RV air conditioner manufacturers like RVP (Coleman) and Dometic. Both companies manufacture their units in the USA!

THE ONLY WAY TO REDUCE THE TRADE DEFICIT WITH CHINA IS TO STOP BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS AND RETURN OUR MANUFACTURING BASE BACK HERE!!!!!
