    The 410A Goodmans have a lifetime compressor warranty, part only, to the original homeowner.

    Yes I am. Hopefully I'll still be one in 12 to 15 years.

    Take care.

    Do you honestly think they're the only one? News flash, they're not. It's hard to debate with you, when you don't have any facts to work with. You just don't like them. Nothing wrong with that. If you want to debate, fine, if you want to argue, I'm not the one.

    Hummm. I found an internet site that sells Rheem/Ruud as well as Goodman. I found another site that will sell Lennox, Carrier, and York direct to the public. I won't mention the names of the sites.

    Goodman's website does state that internet sales are not warranted.

    Take care.

    James, its not Goodman that sells via internet. It the dealers. I've seen every brand made on ebay for sale thru various HVAC Contractors country wide. There are some that sell "installed systems" via ebay, and then there is the rest that just look for a profit on each sale. Laws are being broken for sure

    If you look at some manufacturers site regarding warranty, they state that "internet sales" not covered under any warranty. That would be only those systems sold and shipped to a non licensed person/homeowner etc
    I'll be there when I get there and not a minute later

    I've had 3 different contractors at my place looking at my system. I'm actually having a 4th come out probably tomorrow, but they have all come to the same conclusion more or less.

    Thanks everybody for the replies.

    A quick question about the lines. I was told for a system with 48,000 BTUH that the length of my lines at 3/4 inch are loosing about 14% according to a chart I'm looking at. To have no loose in efficiency that I need to have 1-1/8.
    I guess my builder used the smallest possible to save money ,but looks like I'm having a 14% decrease in efficiency. I'm wondering if it's worth the cost to have these lines replaced?

    Goodman/Amana

The problem is that I don't know much about goodman, but from reading a lot of bad posts about goodman and then having my system outside go out that's only 3 years old just doesn't give me much trust.

    Is there another brand that gives you the best bang for your buck? One contractor was telling me to go with rheem instead of goodman. Another contractor that was charging so much more recommended american standard and was telling me that it's trane branded.

    I prefer to have less of a warranty and more of a reliable system even if it costs me more. So I was just looking for inputs and I couldn't find any other reports except the one from JD power. Consumer reports didn't seem to have any ratings either.
    Gives great bang for the buck

    Well to tell you the truth we have more problems with goodman amana than carrier and american standard.
    I just don't like there furnaces and coils to cheaply made.
    But I do like the outdoor unit on the A line for the Amana.
    But carrier and trane are offering ten year warranties now and the carrier's warranty is transferable.

    Are there any rebates going on? Another contractor that my wife spoke with said that there are rebates going on that you can get up to 3,000 dollars back on your system. I tried looking online for that info, but couldn't find anything.
