    Ok...lets go back a bit and get me on the right track.

    The Goodman GSX-13 is an air conditioner. I'm quoting their website, not just making up stuff.

    Sitting out back of my house is a unit very similar looking to the GSX-13. THAT is what was replaced, but the technician's paperwork says 'condenser'.

    I'm confused, too (obvious).

    Is this what the big metal thing looks like out back?

    Yeah, man! But...as my indoor coil (borrowing terminology from the Goodman website) is R-22 compatible, I needed the AC unit to be the same. I think that issue is why I ended up with a Goodman unit rather than a Trane.

    Compressor = Copeland Scroll. Others say its a good one, one of the best actually. I figure that amounts to something!

    Tough to be a rookie here! Seems I needed some prior knowledge before getting started.

    Sorry to confuse, really. In the beginning, I was simply concerned about longevity of the newly installed unit and whether that concern was based on fact or crap.

    Given all your help and input, I think I'm OK, although still a bit slow in the way's of HVAC.

    Thanks for not flaming me too badly.

    Don't worry. The cheap Trane units don't have a 10 year warranty on the compressors either.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
