    >>>>>>>>>I installed several Goodman units in the past, had problems with all but one system. Biggest problem was coils springing refrigerant leaks. I dropped my Goodman dealership in 1992, and went to York. Since changing to York, I've had only one warranty issue come up, and they gave me excellent support with the issue, even paid me my regular street labor rate to correct the problem. Never got that kind of support from Goodman <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Thanks for confirming you are operating in the past!
    You changed to a different manufacturer in 1992??????
    Great ! I stopped using 33 1/3 records that year and
    went to CD's. Cool.
    Now think, given the fact that most manufacturers have
    been eaten up by ICP or a few others , do you really think that you are relevant??

    Sorry Goodman is currently heads above anyone else.
    If you want bad coils go with Carrier but what if
    Carrier improves their coils next year and you are
    still selling based on 1992??? ha ha ha

    So....what's your point? By the way, ICP is now owned by United Technologies, which is Carrier. You have the right to sell and install any brand you like, I happen to like York. Having been a dealer for 11 years now, with only one warranty claim in that time period, I can't complain one bit. However, I was a Goodman dealer for not quite a year,(used as a second line for cheap ass builders), and had a multitude of failures caused by leaky coils. That, in my opinion, is far from heads above the rest. Check me on this if you want to, York is rated the #1 manufacturer World Wide. Feel free to look that up.

    where they start to rust out and leak.Also like the custom
    made duct work,I hate that 36x 8 crap.

    Just a typical Saturday night at the ranch. A couple of
    loose teeth , few broken glasses.
    Goodman must be doing something right, everybody who
    walks through the door wants to pick a fight.

    I found that in a hot attic the extra insulation on the
    already insulated air handler reduces that small amount
    of hot air that you get when it starts. And it reduces any
    condensation on cold spots on the outside of the air handler.
    The Flex has R6, the sheet metal duct the same.
    But I doubt if the air handler had more that R3 if that.

    Its mostly on the top and one side. The access panel
    does not have extra insulation except for what
    is already on the inside of the panel.

    Sorry Boss, and fellow members. I let a very rough week get to me and ended up venting here in the forum. I realize this was not the thing to do, and will do my best not to let it happen again in the future, please accept my humble apologies.

    Well here goes.....I like Goodman.....There I said it. I feel good now coming out of the closet about that. I know I will draw the wrath of nearly everyone in this forum. I also install Trane in my humble opinion they are the best. I have a grudge against Lennox since they will not sell to me because my company is not a "multi million dollar-rip off-used car salesman-A/C service company" with a hundred trucks and parts changers for techs. I have installed hundreds of Goodmans and must agree that it is mostly how the unit is installed not the equipment itself, since most manufacturers use the same processes and parts. There are manufacturing flaws in all equipment brands. Anything made by man is prone to flaws. This is just like the argument of which is better Ford or Chevy and is equally as pointless.
