    New Goodman system

    So, after all the bandaids have been thrown at the upstairs system, I'm breaking down and looking at the following:

    GSX13030 13 SEER 2.5 ton
    GMVC953AN 95% furnace
    CHPF2430B6 coil

    Any thoughts/recommendations/gripes on this setup? Also, would this be a 2 stage system?

    My goal is to keep the upstairs cool, which is about 1300 sq ft, when it's miserable here in SC.

    I"ve had the ductwork enlarged (see posts from weeks back) so it should work fine. Thanks.

    Its a single stage a/c. should be 2 stage furnace though

    Not a bad setup.

    Right on....just got the single stage a/c confirmation from the installer.

    I was a little confused when he mentioned "2 stage."

    thanks.

    B/C goodman is such a piece of shet, i have the 10 yr parts and labor included so it can be transferred to the next owner if we move before then.

    thanks for the post though.

    Who Told you that. All goodman warranties are only to the original homeowner non- transferable. Its on the website and on there extended labor form. whoever is telling you that is pulling your leg.

    Honestly it's all brands. They are all built from the same crappy Chinese/mexican/3rd world country parts. I've had 2 units in the last 2 weeks less than a year old with blown capacitors. One of them less than 6 months old. Around year 6-8 you will lose a motor or circuit board or other fairly expensive part. If you don't buy the 10 year labor warranty. At least get the 10 year parts.
    I like DIY'ers. They pay better to fix.

    Yep they are....To the original registered owner and his or her spouse
    (“owner”), all parts are warranted for a period of 10 YEARS or for
    so long as the owner owns the home in which the unit was originally
    installed (whichever ends first), except as provided below.
    However, this warranty applies only if:
    1) The unit is installed in an owner-occupied, single family
    residence, and
    2) The unit is properly registered with Goodman online within 60
    days after the original installation. To register, go to
    www.goodmanmfg.com and click on the word “Warranty”
    located on the left side of the home webpage. Next, click on
    the word “Product Registration” located on the left side of the
    Warranty page and follow the instructions.
    Failure by California and Quebec residents to complete the
    product registration form does not diminish their warranty rights.
    • If the above warranty does not apply, then all parts are warranted
    for a period of 5 YEARS.
    Neither warranty continues after the unit is removed from the location.

    So if you sell the house in 3 years there is a 2 year warranty left if you sell the house in 6 years no warranty is left.
    I've sold plenty of them and extended warranties.
    I don't care if the company been in a 100 years there wrong. I dont care if you get a goodman/amana they are wrong about the warranty.

    You are correct to a certain extent. Capaciters are going bad sooner than they used to.

    Well, that's a concern. I'll check it out.

    Thanks.

    I can tell you that in the past (within about a year) goodman WAS allowing transferal of warranty, provided the new owner payed a fee.

    It's possible that your contractor is not aware of a change.

    Or, it's possible that they still allow it.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."
