The Goodman GMH95 is a two-stage, high efficiency gas furnace with an efficiency of up to 95% AFUE. This Energy Star approved unit uses a four-speed direct-drive circulator motor that consistently operates on a lower function to save energy. When the system detects a change in temperature, the motor automatically transfers to a higher heating stage. The multi-speed motor, along with an insulated cabinet, contribute to quiet operation.
Other features of the GMH95 include a silicon nitride ignitor, an aluminized-steel tubular heat exchanger, an electronic control board with self-diagnostics, and an auto-comfort mode that aids increased air quality and humidification.

"Best Gas Furnace Ever in USA"
I owned this furnace from the past 2 years. I do have a warranty for 10 years on every part of it and Lifetime Heat exchange warranty. I don't have any dislikes till now. I don't have any repair or any of the parts replaced from the past 2 years. I had already recommended the same brand to some of my friends and 3 of my friends already bought the same furnace. I really like the speciality of the Goodman Furnace in respect to the customer service and even if we have any complaints they tried to reduce that as soon as they can i heard that from all my friends and i assume that if this is what happens to every customer of the Goodman, Definitely Goodman will be the successful and i hope them to continue their well being in the future times also.

I purchased the gmh95 because the repair was half the amount of the furnace repair. I have seen a 15% decrease in the natural gas bill.

"works as well as it is installed"
Let me just say first off, I am not an HVAC technician. I am, however mechanically inclined. I bought a gmh95 unit off the internet last spring to replace my 6 year old fuel oil unit that tried to kill me in the middle of the night last winter by lighting my face on fire while trying to get the stubborn old beast to reset. I switched to propane with this unit for 2 reasons. 1: The price of fuel oil has skyrocketed in the last 5 years I have owned this home. 2: Natural gas is not available in the rural area I live in. That being said, I am the type of person that studies, reviews and mulls things over for months before making large purchases such as a furnace. After getting estimates from local HVAC companies ranging from 4k to 5k for the type of furnace I wanted, I decided to buy and install the furnace myself. I chose the Goodman mainly due to price. In all, I spent around 2k including rental of a propane tank and having it set, a new plenum, return air drop, gas lines, and fittings, exhaust and fresh air lines, and fittings, glue, and all the other small bits needed to do the install. I read over the installation instructions 3 or 4 times and one Saturday morning, I tore out the old unit and proceeded to install the new Goodman unit. It took me a day to do everything having the installation book to refer to with me the whole time. I installed this furnace exactly as the instruction booklet told me to. This furnace runs flawlessly. I see people on here complaining and complaining and complaining about these units. I can understand a unit here or there having a problem from the get go as nothing is ever perfect and sometimes shit just happens and you will need to bitch at your installer or the manufacturer. On the other hand, there are people installing these things themselves that don't know what the hell they are doing or they have paid an installer that doesn't know or care what the hell they are doing. Improperly sized duct work and/or units with not enough vents are going to overwork your blower motor and burn that sob out in no time at all. The same goes for all you people that are too damn lazy to change your filters on a regular basis. Improperly sized fresh air and exhaust lines on the high efficiency models are going to cause all kinds of hell with the system. Dirty oily fingers touching the new ignitor when the old one is being replaced is going to cause premature failure of the new one.(By the way...the hot surface ignitor is a common repair on all furnaces using them rather then a spark type ignition) There are two types of these hot surface ignitors also, silicone carbide and silicone nitride. The silicone nitride will last as much as twice as long as the carbide model at a bit higher cost initially. Keep an extra one around and install it yourself when the one in the furnace burns out. Its 1 screw and one wire connection to replace it usually. Lets also mention that for those of you that may have a Goodman unit that was converted to propane when installed that the pressures for it must be set with a piece of equipment called a manometer to assure proper flame so as not to soot up or otherwise prematurely wear out your heat exchanger. Do any of you that have complained about premature heat exchanger failure route your clothes dryers exhaust into the house to capture the heat and humidity? That will kill your heat exchanger in a hurry too. Or even wet stale basements can do it. Or for those of you that say "Well, I have a brand new house blah blah blah". Do you have an air exchanger in the brand new house that's built so tight that when you slam the front door the toilet flushes? All that humid air needs to be replaced or its going to eat up your heat exchanger and corrode connections etc etc etc. My point is stop blaming the unit you bought when most likely its your own damn fault or your installers. Yes, it's hard to find a contractor you can trust but damn people, you have the internet to bitch so why don't you try using it to educate yourselves a little bit before you hand some dill hole a check for 5k and think everything is going to be like Alice in Wonderland. My only regret with the unit I purchased off the internet and installed myself is that I wish I had gone with the variable speed model rather then the multispeed unit I did get. I would have liked to have had control of the stages at the thermostat which isn't possible with the multispeed unit. If I had made that decision when i bought this unit, I would have give in this unit a "very satisfied" rating rather then the "somewhat satisfied" rating I did give it.

"Love my Goodman furnace."
I had a Goodman gmh95 series installed and I love how whisper quite the unit is. When it comes on in low, you can bearly hear that it is on. Even after it switches to high, there is only the whoosh of air coming out of the ducts. The unit has a nice appliance grade finish and rubber gommets or seals to guarantee silent operation. I did a lot of research before buying a Goodman and talked to several hvac friends,home inspectors, and contractors and if the Goodman is installed correctly, it is a good furnace with a very long warranty.
