Americans have been relying on premium, long-lasting Amana brand products since 1934, when Amana, Iowa, native George Foerstner accepted the challenge of building a dependable beverage cooler. Amana successfully met that challenge and, two years later, the company introduced another innovative product that soon became indispensable for commercial establishments such as grocery stores and restaurants – the walk-in beverage cooler, also known as the cold storage locker.

The residents of Amana, Iowa, began a long history of pioneering and craftsmanship, and that spirit continues today in the manufacturing of quality Amana Heating and Air Conditioning products. From the technology behind our unique heat exchanger to the inclusion of high-quality filter driers in each of our air conditioners and heat pumps, we remain committed to Amana’s legacy of providing homeowners with heating and cooling products that are built to last.

Because of the craftsmanship that goes into every Amana brand HVAC product, we are able to offer outstanding limited warranty* coverage. These warranty* coverages continue the legacy of Amana products that last and, last, and last.
