"Complaint concerning equipment"
I would like to advise people reading these reviews not to buy a Goodman AC. After only 6 months of usage, the compressor had to be replaced. In order to replace this part (by the way, still under warranty) we had to pay a fee of $75 to exchange it for a new one. It's still under warranty, we have been told, but the new compressor needs Freon. To finish it all, the labor is not warrantied. So it comes to a total of $475 that is supposed to be warrantied - $75 exchange for a new one, $123 of Freon, and the labor for an AC that was bought in April 2013. Wow... How come this company is still in business? Oh yeah, I told Atlantic AC in Pompano Beach that we would write a complaint.

"Compressor not working after 4 years"
I bought the 4-ton Goodman condenser unit, and after 4 years the compressor stop working. I knew that I had a 5-year warranty on the compressor, so I called them and they told me that the warranty is only for the parts. I asked 4 different companies how much they will charge only for the labor. The answer was between $1400-$1800. I can't believe that Goodman doesn't give a warranty for labor. Stay away from this awful company!

"Undependable AC units & company won't stand behind their products."
I own 3 Goodman AC units on my roof. They were installed by L & S AC in Las Vegas on January 14, 2013. My contractor picked the AC company. All of them needed repairs in a little over one year, which means I had to spend $3,300 in the last six months. One of the big problems was that L & S did not tell me about Good Care warranty, which would have covered the units and labor for ten years for $1,500. They also did not register two of them, and the third was a wrong unit. I have a Goodman AC that was repaired by L & S on March 16, 2014; they put in a new compressor and a reversing valve. Now, in six months, that unit already needs a new compressor, a reversing valve, and a condensing coil. I now have a dependable AC Company who is trying to help me get a new AC from Goodman, since the unit broke for the second time in the last six months. Since the unit broke three weeks ago, I have spoken to 4 customer service people at Goodman Co. in Houston, TX, to get a new AC unit, but none of these people has helped me so far. The best one was Caroline, who told me that a technical rep will call my AC company, but that has not happened since I spoke to her four days ago. I keep calling Goodman every day and also my AC company to see what progress has been made, but nothing, even after 3 weeks of no AC in the Mohave desert. It's 94'f in my house. I should not have to keep calling them, and spending my time, energy and money on this. It should be easier for an AC contractor to replace them with so many problems. I am ready to take those units out and replace them with a company that will stand behind their product and service.

"Worst unit ever"
This is the worst unit ever made!!! We built and purchased our home 2011 and the contractor had this unit already installed when we brought the house. We started having issues with the unit after only 18 months, starting with low refrigerant, then compressor went out, and now cracked pipes. I would never recommend this product to anyone. When I lived in Kentucky, we had a Trane and it never gave us any problems.

I have had nothing but problems with this air conditioner! I have had it serviced 5 times in the last two months. Loses coolant and they can not find where. I read where the coils leak and going to replace them! I would never purchase another one!

"Not a good company"
I have only been in my home for 2 and a 1/2 years. My unit needs a new coil. I am the first homeowner of my home. Brand new home, I called to see about the warranty and I was told my warranty only covers the part and not the labor. I don't think this is fair. After reading up on this company, I see that they have had a lot of problems with the coil on these units and they sometimes are replace and still aren't any good. I will never ever buy anything from this company. And when you call them they act like they don't care. BAD Company!!!

"I install them"
Never had a unit go bad in the last 5 years I have been installing them. A lot about a system depends on who installed and if it was installed properly. Which, in this business, I find a lot cut corners. With new laws coming to New Jersey, should weed out the fly by nighters. I also agree with a post - most units are cut from the same cloth.

Junk.. Second time in 2 years it broke down. Now needs a new compressor. My option is wait for 2 weeks for one to be shipped or pay 100.00 for 3 to 4 day shipping. Mid August and here I sit...Should have got a name brand. Oh well..

Had gas furnace and a/c unit installed in August of 2010. Starting in June of 2011 every time a/c unit ran water could accumulate on cellar floor. After finally getting my own plumbing contractor, as the company who installed the unit kept giving me the runaround, found out we had a crack in the tray which should collect the water and send it to the pump. Goodman said it was the fault of the contractor who installed the unit, that they damaged the tray. Had a new unit installed, at my expense, and the same thing happened to this second tray. Wrote to the company and they replied that they manufacture the best quality equipment and gave me the excuse that I should have purchased their "so called plan". They never honored any warranty within the time period. Would never recommend this product to anyone. So far it has cost me almost as much for repairs as I paid for the new unit at the time of purchase. Other unit I had lasted me for fifteen years and never had a problem. Heard this company was No. 2 in the manufacture of these units. They keep producing equipment and not treating their customers reasonably they will end up being at the bottom.

"Goodman air conditioners suck"
Goodman air conditioners suck big time. My unit always had problems and it only lasted 3 years. The owner of this company should be arrested for imitating a manufacture of air units. For the money I spent it came to the cost of $750.00 per year. My advice is don't buy this product and go with a reputable company that knows what their doing. Rheem, Trane anything other than Goodman. I never even heard of Goodman before my suckie air conditioning repairman put one in. If you enjoy sweating every summer and like to see your electric bill skyrocket then this is the product for you. Last summer I got the biggest electric bill I ever had, because the start up on these units take double the electricity that other units use. When the system would start it sounded like grinding thunder. The system is very flawed so again let me stress this unit isn't even worth the pain and anguish and trouble. I wouldn't even take this unit if somebody paid me for it. Don't buy goodman.
