Overview of the EnergiAir
Goodman manufactures a number of air conditioners that it markets under the EnergiAir name. Seven models are available, ranging from 13 to 18 SEER.
The base GSC units operate with R-22 refrigerant, while the GSX and higher-end units use the more environmentally friendly R-410. The manufacturer touts the high efficiency of these products’ scroll compressor, and notes that each model includes a liquid line filter dryer installed in the factory. A coil with copper tubing and aluminum fins also is included.
The SSX is promoted for its “superior” and quiet performance, as compared to its sister products. In addition to features noted in the above unit, this includes a louvered top and compressor sound blanket designed to reduce the run noise, as well as high- and low-pressure switches. The DSXC additionally includes the manufacturer’s ComfortNet system that allows compatible units to “communicate” environmental and operating conditions.
Other EnergiAir Reviews
Posters on the gardenweb.com online discussion forum call the EnergiAir series a “private label” name manufactured by Goodman, and report hearing mixed reviews on exactly what that means. On this thread, other reviewers elaborate that Goodman is known for manufacturing “budget-friendly” air conditioners. For some consumers on this site, including one who shares what he sees as a few shortcomings in the design of the product, budget-friendly isn’t bad as they say these units perform just fine overall.
