I'm new to this community but have been reading very similar posts on the archives (which are somewhat dated) as to whether a Goodman condenser and evaporator unit compares to either American Standard or Carrier. Sounds like lots of people do not prefer Goodman, but others say that it doesn't matter which brand, it's all about good installation. I live in Houston, TX and use the AC 8-9 months out of the year, usually alot. I got several quotes today for 14 Seer 5 ton systems and Goodman is the cheapest, American Standard the most expensive. The Goodman guy stated that Goodman's units were crap and unreliable 10 years ago, but that it's top of the line today.
I am now thoroughly confused as to whether I should go with Goodman or Carrier or American Standard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
