    Coldmasters AC?

    I know most people are using Vintage Air, but has anyone tried the Coldmaster AC units? If so, any info on them would be appreciated.

    I don't have any experience with them, but if and when I do get A/C, it will be one without custom electronic controls like Vintage Air has. I don't like the idea of electronics due to the fact that they often use custom IC's made for that company. When the source is dried up, there won't be another run. I've seen it many many times in the last 39 years of repairs of other electronic equipment. When that IC goes bad, you are left with a great looking unit that can't be repaired.

    VIntage Air is the "standard" in the industry as far as I can tell. Their GEN IV unit is the most advanced unit on the market. Personally I really like the servo controls over cables that clutter up the underside of the dash where I have a lot of other stuff going on. Vintage Air has been in the industry the longest of all, I believe. They're not going away.

    I've never even heard of "Coldmasters". I just did a search and it looks like all of their units are "universal" with a big bulky box that sits under the dash. They don't have any custom-fit car-specific units. Also, it looks like they want you to put an electric fan in front of the condenser, which I would not do.

    My advice is stick with an industry leader.
