    This quality of the install determines the performance and LONGEVITY of the system.......What saves the "cheap" installer from their lack of knowledge and shortcuts taken might not show up for a couple of years and he is long gone and paid.

    So possibly for the next couple of years you will pat yourself on the back for the $$ you saved......However, in your case, the 10 year goodman warranty will not apply to you, so when the compressor kills itself or reversing valve or coil leak...the list goes on....you will pay many times over.

    It is so difficult sometimes to get thru to people that they are NOT buying an appliance, but a SYSTEM that NEEDS to be integrated into your home!!!

    Give a man a capacitor, doesn't know what to do. Teach a man to install it, now he knows everything.

    At the time of purchase I was told it had the warranty. I bought it in January of 2008. The house remodel has been a long process. The guy said he has installed them for 15 years. The problem with being a home owner is how do you know the person is doing everything correct and not cutting corners? I know a lot of times people cut corners since the home owner has no idea what is correct. I just hope the inspector catches anything that could comprimise the systems life. Any advice on what I should watch for when the install is done?

    What inspector????? Mechanical inspector? They just look for condensate lines and code compliance-they could care less about performance, they are NOT A QUALITY CONTROL STEP!

    How does an inspector know the system was purged with nitrogen? How does he know the vacuum was pulled to less then 500 microns? how does he know the duct is sized to deliver the cfm's required???? THEY DON'T!!!


    I absolutely love it when 2 guys go into business with 10 years of experience each and list on their marketing "20 years of experience"
    How do I know your current contractor is cuttin' corners?.......Do you have a manual j and d analysis???? He didn't supply the correct equipment and let you know what the electric heat KW based upon either 1. covering the emergency heat load or 2. covering the auxilary heat requirement.
