    According to this guy, Whirlpool and Kenmore were made by Janitrol/Goodman? When was this?

    Thumbs down No truth in promo ads..

    That would be a little bias if you asked me, showing a Goodman promotion ad to cut the Carrier, and Lennox.

    I'm sure if you look hard enough you could find the real facts on Goodman products, and it's repair and warranty service issues..

    It's called marketing...

    Every manufacture does the same thing...

    There are good points to each side.

    They didn't compare to Trane which has all the features shown, including rustproof basepan and coated screws.

    They didn't show favorable points of competition, either. Enclosed compressors and demand defrost. I'd expect to see timed defrost on a Goodman.

    I think somewhere around 8-10yrs. ago. ICP (Carrier) makes Kenmore now.
    WHY?

    And Trane's/A.S. basepans are made of some kind of polycarbonate mat'l which not only resists corrosion & rust but also noise.

    Could explain why Carrier/Lennox/Goodmans are still soooo darn loud!

    My parents have a Goodman heat pump sitting on the porch of their condo and they just love how quiet it is compared to the brand that it replaced. Would you like to show some proof of what you stated?

    As for the plastic bases; you need 6 pump ups under the heat pumps to keep the weight of the compressor from making them sag. Not saying it is worse or better, just that these are not viable comparisons of quality but rather personal preferences.

    Goodman just came out with a Trane comparison pamphlet as well. Don't get me wrong, this is mostly marketing hype which as has been noted is done by all manufactureres. What is stated is accurate, but of course there are things that are left not stated.

    Don't know about Whirlpool, but Sears Kenmore is parts of the U.S. were Goodman for about 5 years up to about two years ago. I was glad to hear when that stopped.

    The Trane PTACs were also manufactured by Goodman/Amana until about two years ago when Trane started having them made overseas.
