Nordyne has secured the rights to manufacture and market hvac equipment under the Maytag brand. Nordyne's Maytag-branded products will include an "ultra-premium " line, featuring what it claims is the best standard warranty in the industry: the first-ever industry warranty on labor - 10 years - and a 10-year warranty on parts.

The ultra-premium products sport a distinctive look - for instance, the air conditioner and heat pump feature a stainless steel full metal jacket and complementing black paint scheme. These high-efficiency units (12-14 SEER and 80-92% AFUE) will be marketed to high-end consumers, according to the company. The warranty on ultra-premium products includes a 10-year warranty on both parts and labor, and the labor portion of the warranty will be based on street rate reimbursement, with a slight premium for flat rate reimbursement.
