Don't buy it, after 5 years of a great furnace, it suddenly has intermittent failures and no one seems to be able to fix the problem, and of course it happened right after the warranty was up. I hate this furnace and wish I could afford to put a new one in my home. I even had an amana engineer at my house to look at it and after spending $268 dollars it wasn't the fix. I'm so ticked off.

"11 Years to First Problem"
Had this 95 installed 10/4/00 by a local Heating & Cooling Contractor (also an Amana Dealer). It has performed flawlessly until the first minor problem today (blower cycles On-Off trying to run in "Fan Only" mode). I've been running the fan in auto low speed 24/7 for the last several years to circulate and HEPA filter the air. It still runs fine in normal fast (heating) mode so it's not completely broken - probably the controller board - I'm still investigating. I've never replaced even the igniter or any other component. Very reliable unit - I'd buy another Amana GUX-X without hesitation.

"The first two years were fine"
The first two years for Amana Air Command 80 were fine after that, there has been a service call every year.

"People need to smarten up"
As you have read by now many people find some sort of issue with the Amana brand and especially with every brand of furnace/ac out there. Some complain that their unit is only 80% efficient and now 96. Well that's because they didn't want to pay up another $2000 for a much better unit and others keep complaining about faulty/noisy ventor motors. Well I hate to tell you but they are all the same that's why most of the replacement parts for all furnaces are interchangeable meaning you can use the same part on 30 different furnace brands. On another note, all these parts are made in China so the made in USA means nothing just that it was assembled in the USA. One must compare a furnace to a car as it does require regular maintenance and money to be re-invested over time as nothing lasts forever. I have installed many Carrier/Payne/Amana/Goodman/Rheem products over the years and just because you pay more money does not mean less repair bills down the road.

This is the worst piece of junk I have ever owned. Flame Igniter goes out every year, which makes for a nice service call.

This unit broke within a week. I have replaced everything but the motor: a coil, squirrel cage, heat pump, condenser, control pad, copper tubes and much more. I bought the so-called top of the line (worst heat and cooling unit ever heard of).

All you folks happy with your newly installed beware. The workmanship is not good, and the fire tubes begin to leak carbon monoxide. These furnaces are not built to last! Then your dealer says Amana will warranty it but the install will cost you around $1500.00. The install is a 2 hour job at most and to top it all off the replacement furnace has no warranty! I can buy the same furnace on ebay for $600 with a new warranty and a Contractor will instal is for $300. No more Amana Crap for me!!

"Great Furnace & AC!"
I had an Amana furnace and a/c system installed almost 6 years ago and love it. Its quiet and I've never had a problem. My gas and electric bill went down quite a bit after it was installed. Yesterday I heard my neighbor say he heard he needed a new furnace and I highly recommended Amana. I also recommended the company I used to install it too because I think that's half the issue when people aren't happy with their furnaces or a/c units.

"Amana Is Awesome, Best Investment !"
I have no idea how anyone gave a bad review to Amana, I replaced a very old gm Furnace (60s era) with the top of the line Hi-E Amana , I have saved at least $ 50. per month last winter (2010) and at least the same this past (2011) season ! Very quite, the ac is outstanding also. The best decesion I ever made.. My wife and I are very pleased and glad we choose Amana, and Gidich Heating & Air Conditioning (Lorain, Ohio) were very professional and we very happy with them as well. Great combo "Gidich & Amana"!!

"Dogs peeing on A/C"
Does someone have to beat you with a bat? Keep your dogs off the a/c no mater what. Your unit may have copper tubing like many other brands but they all have aluminum fins. when they are gone the unit may hold freon but will not cool properly because the air will be sucked through the hole and not through the fins where the heat is given up. Pressures and temperatures in an A/C unit correspond directly. The higher the temp the higher the pressure. High temp/press will kill your compressor before its time. There would be no way to accurately charge a unit in that condition. You'd be looking at another new unit.
