I started installing Goodman equipment when they improved their equipment 5 or 6 years ago. Haven’t had problems with any of them.
I recommend other brands to homeowners because nothing Goodman makes compares to high end Carrier, Lennox, Trane/ AS, etc. equipment. But if the homeowner just can’t afford top of the line equipment then I recommend Goodman.
This way the homeowner gets a higher quality product from Goodman than what they’d get for the same price from Carrier, Lennox, Trane/ AS, etc. For example they can upgrade to variable speed with Goodman rather then getting a Lennox multi-speed blower at the same price.
And as far as Goodman selling to everybody I think it’s great. I’m really starting to see a lot of 1-4 year old Goodman equipment installed by homeowners and hacks. Usually needs several repairs making it the most profitable service call of the day.
