Great furnace. Installed it myself. Has run perfectly for 6 years. Easy
to install; really liked the fact that I could duct it with pvc. My
tenants love that its so cheap to run.

"5 yrs NO PROBLEMS GMV95 70000btu"
I don't understand why people are saying Goodman is not a good equipment.
I had a gmv95 70000btu installed 5 years ago and never had a problem
with this model. Never had it cleaned, only changed my filter regularly
myself. The only thing I did was upgrade my single stage thermostat to
a two stage which I highly recommend. I paid $2800 Canadian installed
taxes in. My friends are installing Carrier, Lennox etc. Paying prices
of $8000 plus for basically what I have and some are already having
small problems. They are shocked when I tell them that I have a Goodman
paid $2800 and never had a problem in 5 years. Maybe it was the
installation or this particular model but whatever the case I think I
made an excellent purchase. I hope this can help some of you decide as
buying a new furnace can be a very frustrating process. Good luck!

I replaced a Patriot fuel oil furnace with a gmv950704cxb lp Furnace,
and ssz160481 Heat Pump. I could have put in Carrier because I work for
an authorized dealer but chose Goodman because of ease of installation,
product history, features, and faith in the product. Not only have I
saved on my seasonal fuel and electric costs but I gained comfort too.
This system is by far the best investment that I have made in the last

"Goodman GMV95 furnace"
I installed this Goodman GMV95 115k BTU furnace myself. Cost of furnace, AC coil 5 ton, Skuttle filter kit, concentric vent kit, all miscellaneous install parts PVC, fittings black pipe etc., total cost $2300.00. Removal of old unit and installation of a new one took me one weekend. Took out the permits and had fire, electric and plumbing inspectors out and passed with flying colors. Then had my HVAC contractor come out and do the first fire up. He went over a complete check list and fired it up, then he went through another check list return air temp, supply air temp, stack temp 1st stage and 2nd stage, amp draw, vent temp, thermostat settings and more. Works like a dream. I could not be happier. Can't beat the price or warranty, energy efficient, quiet and easy to install. I did my homework before I started and it paid off.

We purchased a Goodman 46k, 93% unit online from a defunct HVAC company. It was a new, never installed furnace. I have installed many heating & AC units, although most of them were industrial or commercial units. Further, this unit was installed with the dual purpose of heating a remote section of the home while also serving as backup heat in the event that the primary heat source went down. (Trane 2 stage high efficient with A/C coil which I also installed) The Trane has functioned perfectly for 2 plus years. This Goodman unit worked equally well for a period of 2 weeks, then the board decided that the polarity of the power was incorrect despite the fact that nothing was changed. Detailed tests verified that polarity, voltage, & grounding were all well within specs. It seems that the board died in such a short time, a period over which there were no thunderstorms or other household electronic failures. I know enough about modern furnaces that I am well aware that the Trane could also experience a problem at any time in the future. However, my complaint with Goodman is that they advertise their great warranty then point to fine print which says they do not warrant units bought online. I can only imagine how much other fine print & loopholes exist in their warranty. I understand their concerns about idiots butchering installations but on the other hand I am also aware of people in the
trade that I would never let touch my furnace. What's wrong with Goodman in exercising a little common sense by choosing to back what it sells? Goodman probably makes a usable product but do not read to much into their warranty.

Have had a top of the line gmv95 furnace and a ssz14 heat pump since
2006. Not a single problem out of it.It's quiet reliable and keeps the
house very comfortable.The cost was reasonable and the installtion very
professional.I Have read some of the reviews on here about Goodman.All I
can say is quit hireing parts changers.2 or 3 boards on a furnace in a
year? Can you say parts changer.All of the parts they use in thier
equipment are top quailty.Copeland compressors.GE Motors White Rodgers
boards and gas valves.Go ahead and buy that overpriced Carrier or
Trane.Just make sure you have a quailty contractor.As for me Im very
happy with the Goodman brand.

"Goodman GMV950905DXB furnace"
I recently had a Goodman gmv950905dxb furnace installed in my house. It
is their top end model that comes with an ecm programmable motor and a 2
stage burner. I am very impressed with how quiet this furnace is. You
can program the motor for the size of your house, or the way you want it
to run. It is very easy to do once you read the instructions 2 or 3
times. I have the fan run continually on a very slow speed to keep the
air inside the house moving. While this is happing, the humidifier is
keeping the air to the correct level, and the UV lights are killing any
germs or bacteria in the house. I used to dread looking at my gas bill,
but this month I am looking forward to seeing just how much money I am
saving and having a more comfortable home.

Installed a 70,000 btu gmv95 dual stage, 95 afue unit with the variable
dc fan motor, very happy, tried initially with the original Tstat, big
mistake, replaced with a Honeywell 2 stage programmable, what a huge
difference, only comes on high heat when recovering to room temp at 6
am, otherwise I can't even tell it's running, very quiet, very tight
temp control and the power savings are unbelievable, when the other
furnace was running I thought the power meter would blow up, this unit
in low stage (90% of the time) consumes 75 watts (a light bulb) located
in Ontario Canada, bought it direct from an outfit in Ohio, had it
trucked to upstate ny and picked it up myself, hired a local licensed
installer ($700) and saved a ton of dough (half what the local hvac guy
quoted me) register the warranty yourself online and have proof of
licensed installation and the warranty is good, also, gonna get a grand
back from the gov on an an energy rebate, sweet

Goodman gmv95 70000btu with Goodman box type media merv 11 filter and
honeywell focus pro 6000(single stage) 2 pipe direct venting installed
Oct/2008. As everyone knows this past winter was brutal, I saved roughly
$500 dollars in natural gas and the furnace from the first start up has
been working flawlessly, very quiet and reliable. Never hesitated to turn
up the thermostat as I seen my monthly gas bill go down, past winter was
very cozy without costing me a fortune. My deciding factors for
purchasing this unit.
1. 95%EE/DC motor
2. Excellent warranty
3. Very good pricing
When I first started researching furnaces I was overwhelmed with the amount of info out there, friends who were in the HVAC trade had their own preferences and online was hard to get a straight answer. So, for the money and warranty I took a chance and let me tell you am I ever happy I did. You can't go wrong with Goodman's warranty and pricing, really! Now that I have a Goodman furnace it really surprises me to see bad reviews on Goodman maybe it's on older units not sure. Keeprite VS90 was another unit I considered seemed like a good unit until I saw their warranty, at the time it was lifetime on heat exchangers and 7 years on parts now its 10 years on parts but even at that Keeprite is very picky with yearly servicing and must show proof before any warranty kick's in. That SUCK'S! My HVAC friends tell me that yearly servicing on gas furnaces is not always necessary. Keeprite also uses a crimped clamshell heat exchanger. I've had problems with my old Carrier clamshell heat exchanger I like Goodman's tubular design.
Goodman is not junk it is good junk! Take a chance you will not regret it. Hope this help's!

I bought the newest Goodman GMV95 two stage variable DC furnace for this heating season, and I couldn't be happier. It's ultra quite, works only as hard as it needs to to maintain a comfortable temperature, and the blower has plenty of oomph to push air all through my house. It really shines when it's used with the proper two stage thermostat (mine is a Honeywell VisionPro). Everything seems to be really well built and solid. It also uses so little electricity that I immediately noticed a lower hydro bill!
