    Confused

    Any thoughts on how Goodman products are doing these days, as in reliability and performance?? I know installation is key, but if installed correctly, are they any good?? thanks

    Very reliable. We don't have too many problems. Installed correctly is the key phrase.

    Reliable,good warranty. I did replace compressor and reversing valve in 2 year old unit due to compressor wires grounding out in bottom of cabinent against liquid line. I have also seen Trane 2 year old trane unit ground out its crankcase heater. My point being from so called "low end to high end" units all are subject to unforseen circumstances.Bottom line I installed goodman heatpump in my own home.No problems so far (1year)but I also know system is tight and was installed correctly.

    Sorry Robo, gotta let the Goodman bashers have their fun

    Seems to be an epidemic of wires rubbing through and copper tubing rubbing through these days. Worst is these Rheem cubes, seems like we're always losing something on them.

    We install a fair amount of Goodman equiptment.

    I havent noticed more problems with them than any other brand.

    When a problem does occur they always honor the terms of the warranty.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    Ok Robo,

    Let me start:
    Goodman is Junk...
    Lennox is a lemon...
    Payne is a pain in the a$$..
    Bryant is garbage...
    Carrier is $hit...
    Nordyne is recycled junk..
    Trane is in the toilet..
    etc.. You get the point!!

    This is if installed by DIY or a hack..

    A professional installation,, any brand can work to its abilities.. Each brand has higher tier units and builders models and some have inovations that other don't...

    My question would be did my hvac Contractor:
    1.) Load calculation
    2.) Verify ductwork is proper for system
    3.) Go over any problems you currently have,,, i.e. Some rooms cold/others hot..
    4.) Did he instill impress that he will do the job correctly..
    5.) Did he concentrate on providing a complete job proposal for all your concerns or did he just focus on being the cheapest or offered to beat any other deals..
    6.) etc... you get the point..

    A Great contractor is the most important,, then go with the best set up that contractor is offering..

    Goodluck
    J

    Technically the cubes aren't sold under the Rheem name. Corsaire, Zephyr, WeatherKing, Duroguard, ThermalZone...

    The A/C units are great, the pumps have been a nightmare.

    OK, I knew this. I agree about the heat pumps. When I was a Rheem/Ruud rep inspecting heat pumps during a particularly long spell of ice storms I could pretty much diagnose those cubes while pulling into the driveway.

    It is true that the suction pressures on Goodman equipment is superior to that of other brands. Good of you to point out yet another quality feature aircooled
