    i question why american standard and trane are listed seperatly while goodman/amana and all of nordyne brands are grouped together. am. std. and trane have same model numbers theres no difference in brands at all.

    So, with Goodman being the most installed residential brand, how do you react to when you are needed to service a Goodman system? Do you inform the consumer that you "hate" their units?

    It likely has to do with grouping stuff so there is a significant market share reflected in the pole.
    Nordyne has like 14 different brands, none of them have enough market share by themselves to be significant in the pole, but grouping them together shows how strong Nordyne is.

    Also, you can't be both a Trane and an American Standard dealer, it is either one or the other.
    You can be a dealer for as many brands of Nordyne equipment as you care to do the paperwork at the supply houses that carry them.
    With Goodmana, signing up as a dealer for one automatically makes you a dealer for both.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Personally I find goodman has a very nice furnace,except their flame sensor tends to need a to be cleaned every year.i had to clean one of their flame sensors twice this year.once on a pm and once 3 months later on a no heat.some years back before they bought Amanda they had quite a bit of problems with heat exchangers but they are good now. I also don't care for their txv's as they have to be adjusted on every new system,but they are easy to replace as they are externally mounted.

    He didn't say goodman equipment. He said goodman. Sounded personal. Maybe it's because goodman appears to have driven drunk, killed a guy and adopted his fiancee'.

    Yea, it's kinda easy to not very much like John Goodman (not the actor) for the way he has been behaving lately. Of course, John Goodman (not the actor) has not had anything to do with Goodman HVAC equipment for a while now.

    No I don't say anything but I have had to straighten a lot of fins of the condensers because there own coil guards rub on the coils and there air handler doors screws come stripped out from the factory. Oh yeah and taking the top off a package unit to inspect the coil and it pretty much falls apart.

    But if they ask me my opinion of goodman I am not going to tell them its a quality product.

    The components are okay but they are made of the thinnest metal and just thrown together. I also don't know why you would want a unit that still has a piston MD. In our market you get a goodman because A thats what the builder used or B you want it done cheap.

    There are plenty of Hvac companys that will do it cheap. But we take the time to do it right and make sure the duct system is right for the system and the equipment is the right size for the house

    For people who cant afford a trane we offer ICP my only complaints with those is the coil guards rattle on the package units.
