"My broke down unit"
We have had our home for only three years and we already have to replace the evaporator coil in our unit. I spoke to several heating and air repair places and they all said the goodman units were bad for this.

"13+yrs and going strong"
I bought a house in No. Virginia in 1997 that had no AC and electric baseboard heat. I immediately had a Nat. gas furnace (Dependable 92), Central AC for the 1st floor (2.5ton) and a heat pump installed upstairs (1.5 ton). I had the igniter replaced twice on the furnace in 14 winters. No other maintenance required. I chose Goodman simply because it was half the price of the others and I was broke. Total install including ducting and a water heater about 10K. The dealer installer was very honest with me, he informed me that the heat pump is great in moderate temperatures but will struggle in the extremes. 100+F days the HeatPump struggles to maintain 75F and below 0 winter nights struggles to maintain 70. The furnace and AC unit downstairs have had no problems in maintaining desired temperatures in any climate. This is my 14th year and I know the units will need replacing soon. Fortunately the dealer installer is still in business and should have no problem swapping out units as needed. I do plan on using a different brand for the Heat pump though! Overall I have had minimal issues and feel very satisfied with the GOODMAN products! Good Luck Rush

"H/A gas pack"
Sorry I let the contractor talk me into buying a Goodman for our home! Had problems with leaking coil, bad circuit board within 3 -6 months after installation. Between the frustration of such a large purchase(gas pack heating/cooling unit)being problematic, and the local supplier charging me $125 for replacement of faulty parts that are allegedly "UNDER WARRANTY", which obviously does not mean free replacement...READ THE FINE PRINT

Installed 2 units in my home in 2008.In 2010 I had to replace a dryer.I had to pay 325.00 for labor.One month later coils in both units stop working within weeks of each other.I am out about 900.00 for repairs and am scared that this will not be the end of it.I wrote Goodman about my problems and they offered me 200.00 dollars as a goodwill gesture(their words).

You know, the gentleman who stated that you folks need to understand that a good licensed installer makes the biggest difference is probably the best entry here. All mechanical devices may at one time or another have an issue. Too many times people blame the "brand", when as previously stated, many of these manufacturers acquire their parts from the exact same place. My Goodman, installed by a class company/individual, has worked flawlessly for 2 years. Murphy's law may raise its ugly head right after I click the "send" button on this review, but I'll make a call to my guy and get it taken care of. My advice, stop bashing companies (manufacturers)that work their tail off under strict regulations to build a good product and start blaming yourself because you hired a subpar installer. Oh, and Merry Christmas.

"Do Not Buy"
Have two homes that have two Goodman units each - Put in in 2008. Was to be one of the best installers in area. House 1. Replaced reversing valve, Replaced pump, One has noise they cannot find (I know it is in the pump), so both pumps will be replaced. House 2. Replaced both Coils, Replaced thermastat, one still having cooling problems (only way it works is to put in way toooo much coolent) Will be repacing with another brand soon.

"Nothing but trouble"
We bought two ac/heating units in 2008. There have been multiple replacement parts and service repair visits. After the first year we have had to pay for the service visits and it is getting very expensive. The service repair person told me during his last visit that the company he works for is having to do a lot of repair work on this brand. It is terrible to worry about if and when your heating and air system will break again.

"3.5 ton 14 seer"
Got a new ac 3 years ago and works like a charm. Recommended to mine and my wifes parents and everyone is happy. Cool and less expensive.

"Saved me a lot of money"
We replaced our 20 year old Janitrol 2 ton air conditioner with a 2 ton ,13 seer unit and gas furnace this past June and are very pleased! Our June electric bill was $81 and it wasn't very warm outside, but we would turn it on at 4:30 in the afternoon and run it to get the house cooled down so we could sleep comfortably. It was a 10 SEER rated. We had the new system installed the end of June and started using it the first heat wave on July 2nd! We decided to run it the whole month and see if it was really energy efficient as we were led to believe. Our July electric bill was $86, only $5 more than Junes bill was! It would cycle nicely and kept our 1050 sq ft ranch home nice and cool at 72 degrees! We are very pleased with our Goodman unit! we will review our new gas furnace, 70,000 btu- 80% efficient unit half way through the winter season. we hope the savings there will also be substancial!
