Read more about GOODMAN Heat Pumps
Goodmanís GPH15M heat pump is a multi-position packaged heat pump with an
efficiency rating of up to 15 SEER and up to 8.0 HSPF. The self-contained unit can be
installed on the rooftop or on the ground and is available in two sizes.
The manufacturer highlights the fact that its GPH15M heat pump features a high-
efficiency compressor with an internal relief valve. The compressor operates with a
high-efficiency coil made of refrigeration-grade copper tubing and aluminum fins. The
unit also features an EEM (X-13) blower motor; Goodman reports that it insulated the
blower compartment to keep the heat pumpís operation quiet. The unitís heavy-gauge
galvanized-steel cabinet with its gray powder-paint finish was created with corrosion-
resistance in mind.
The GPH15M heat pump uses R-410A (better known as Puron) chlorine-free refrigerant.

"Don't buy a goodman."
Purchased unit in december 2008, by may of 2009 I was hospitalized because the unit was filling the ducting with water, 2011 the switch went out and now it is 2012 and the unit just stopped working, the repairman said the blower is bad. Wow what a company wish I would have found this website before I bought a goodman.

"Warranty stipulations are stupid"
Installed last of 2010. Emptied Freon the first part of 2011 due to copper lines chaffing. Paid repairman $50 for Freon because no parts replaced. Goodman said they would pay $100 for Freon if parts were replaced. Do they not realize and empty system is an empty system no matter how it gets out. Monday it died again. House fan motor this time. None on the East coast. Houston, tx suppose to got some Friday. By the time we get it, and get it installed, the heat pump will have been down 11 or 12 days in some 100+ degree days. Avoid this company

"Goodman worthless 3 compressors in 2 months"
Purchased this unit and was installed by their representative. After three years the compressor went out 3 times in 2 months. They finally replaced the unit with no new warranty and we had to pay all labor costs. We were very satisfied with the GE unit we had for 32 years and never had a problem. We replaced it with the 15 seer Goodman because it was a 6 seer. Our money is truly wasted and Goodman could care less. Never buy anything from them. We have spent more money in labor and parts than the GE costs.

"Read this before buying a Goodman"
In January 2011 I decided to upgrade my hvac from a 3.5 ton 8-seer split unit to a 5-ton 15-seer packaged unit. I found the Goodman 20gph15m which was advertised as a 15-seer packaged heat pump/AC unit that was fairly new on the market. I purchased the unit for about $4,000 and installed it myself. This was easy to install since it only involved running some ducting and connecting power. Well, after only few month of service, the reversing valve popped. After calling Goodman to submit a Warranty claim they were quick to advise me there was no warranty because I installed the unit myself. This was goofy because this unit literally come out of the box and got plugged in. This was in fact a factory defect. I paid my hvac guy $500 to replace the valve and recharge the unit. This was good until a couple months later the new Goodman replacement reversing valve popped again. So yea, I paid another $500 to have it fixed again. This time we coated the new reversing valve with a 45% silver braze for additional strength. I've had no problems with the leakage since. Now for performance. There has been no change to my power bill since upgrading to this 5-ton 15-seer unit. My old 3.5ton 8-seer unit heated and cooled my 2050sqft home just as well (if not better) than this 5-ton 15-seer unit. I even went over board on my return air flow installing 2) 20X25 return registers to insure I had optimum air flow. The a/c cools good however the heat pump blows 65-deg air leaving me to use my heat strips mostly. I do not recommend the Goodman 20GPH15M packaged unit to anyone. After attempting to correct my issues with Goodman with nothing but a hassle, I would not even recommend a Goodman product. I have now spent over $5,000 to upgrade my unit (which my old unit worked fine) only to be dissatisfied with the product and the Goodman manufacture. Beware!

"Goodman Heat pump # GPH1549M41"
Never had a Goodman product but now we do. It is a heat pump 4 ton model 15 steer # gph1549m41 roof unit. The workmanship and installation was excellent and it was installed by Cooling for Less located here in the Phoenix area 480 406-3430. They did an excellent job. I would recommend them to anyone. They always had the time to answers any of my questions. No spin! We live in Scottsdale Arizona and the week it was installed it received a work out with temperatures hitting 114- 116 degrees for the past 2 weeks. It is keeping our house at 73 degrees with no problem. Our home is about 1900 square feet. We never had a ramp up unit before and that took some time getting used to the sound of the compressor and fan ramping up when it starts. Itís just a little different. After a minute it purrs and is very quiet. The volume of air is the best I have ever felt living out her for 30+ yrs. So far so good. We will see what the future holds. I would like to see it in other colors other than forest green.

"I have had a Goodman supposedly 5 ton unit"
I have had a Goodman supposedly 5 ton unit since April. They have been into my house 4 times and it still is not cooling properly. I bought a 10 year service agreement but AirNow won't even come to my house or answer my calls. I have filed a complaint with the Arizona Attorney Generals Office and I am getting ready to find an attorney and file suit against AirNow. This unit is a 14 seer 5 ton unit. It replaced a 12 seer 5 ton Tempstar that was damaged in a hail storm. It was 12 years old and I had to have one service call in the 12 years when a blower motor burned out. I never had a problem with it. I don't know how much problems with this unit is Goodman or AirNow but I intend to find out one way or the other.

I just read some of the reviews on Carrier, Ruud & Rheem. I would be jumping through hoops if my 2 1/2 year old Goodman gph1548 still under warranty had only had twice the problems as the most unsatisfied of them. I am starting the 4th week with no AC in the hottest June I can remember. Unit needs an indoor coil they have but refuse to ship until they have a $25000 order to this area. Now, it needs a compressor also. Compressor for this unit doesn't exist. ETA for a compressor that would have to rigged up (unpaid labor) to work was yet a few more weeks. The first two winters I had to use space heaters and heat strips. Third winter, unit worked just enough that the heat strips carried us but quit as soon as AC was turned on due to Low R410. Anyway, 2 1/2 years 3 compressors, 3 reversing valves, 2 expansion valves, 1 total unit replacement, 1 indoor coil,$1000+ out of my pocket, untold amount out of my contractors. No response from Goodman to my letters, the still under warranty GPH1548 is now setting in a field behind the barn. Ruud, Carrier or Rheem will be installed tomorrow then to the court house to file suit.
