I just had this furnace installed on April 22, 2019. I can tell you it
is super quiet. I actually have to put my hand over the vent the see if
it is running. Seems to be a very efficient furnace so far. I have read
mixed remarks, although I'm one to believe that we must give it a
chance. The warranty is great, providing Goodman stands by their
commitment. The overall size is nice, not too big and not too small. I
love the two-stage format. I have noticed it uses much less gas when
operating on the single stage, and kicks in two the second stage when
the heat is required the adjust quicker. Overall I think I have made the
right choice going with a 2 stage Goodman furnace.

This was installed in November 2015 and has been nothing but trouble
ever since. I live in Wisconsin, where a reliable furnace is a must. The
burners rust and had to be replaced twice. Now it will not start - which
has been a problem before. I would not recommend this furnace to anyone.

Worst furnace ever... poorest quality
Our furnace has needed 6 repairs in the last 12 years and on the
13th year it finally needs replacement due to a cracked heat
exchanger. Goodman should be ashamed of their quality to the end
consumer and placing such hardship on people for such a necessary
need of heating homes.

Goodman GMEC96 Furnace
Installed this unit spring of 2015, so only on its 2nd winter. No issues
or Problems with it. Great furnace with 10 year warranty. 96% efficient
and ecm motor for continuous air circulation and even heating and
cooling. It replaced a Bryant 90 plus with bad heat exchanger. I
researched many brands and talked with several hvac service people. The
only thing you need to keep an eye on with all high efficiency furnaces
are are the filters, intake and exhaust, lack of air flow can cause them
to shut down temporarily. Parts are readily available and easy to
obtain. It is American made and they fixed the issues that are discussed
on the internet from years ago.

Great, efficiant, dependable furnace for a single family home
We decided to install this furnace in our home when we bought the home. The home had an older heat pump set up when we first bought the home, and the previous owners had reported that their electric bill was upwards of $500.00 in the winter. As the home was already using gas for cooking, we decided to go ahead and install the furnace because, in our experience, gas furnaces have been more efficient. I'm very glad that we did, and that we sprung for an energy efficient model. We have only been using the furnace for two winters, but it has likely already paid for itself in energy savings. We have had absolutely no issues with our unit, and I recommend Goodman products in general, and this model in particular, to anyone that I know who expresses that they are considering buying a furnace. The unit also comes with a ten year warranty in case anything does happen to go wrong. Should the time come when we have to utilize the warranty, I'll follow up with another review regarding that.

I had this unit installed in late September. The first day I needed it
the unit would not heat above 65 degrees. The service folks are great
but have spent four different days replacing boards, high limit
switches, and dip switch settings. It still does not work properly. I
have to turn the emergency switch on the wall on and off twice to get it
started. I have replaced the thermostat [which was unnecessary] to
insure that problem was not the thermostat. My 25 year old heater worked
better than this one and I am sorry I replaced it with the Goodman.

The Goodman GMEC96 is a winner! Warming and efficient!
I live in the south, and for a long time our old furnace worked all right on the few days we needed it per year, up until last year, when it quit on us. We felt that we needed to get something that would be easier on our pocketbook, since the old furnace seemed to really ramp up our electric bill when used. We chose the Goodman GMEC96 and I am so glad we did. Gas is much more affordable then electric for this particular item because 96% of the energy being used is directly converted into heat - this is far better than electric models. We are warm and cozy and toasty any day of the year that we need it now. Although the initial cost was significant, the savings will make up for it over the lifetime of the unit, and since we plan on living here for many more years, it was worth it to us to buy this quality unit. It has never needed service and runs like a top. I would buy this brand again. We highly recommend!

An affordable and energy efficient furnace
I've owned my Goodman furnace for about three years now and couldn't be happier. I bought it online because my old one was on the fritz. I was nervous about the return policy, but it worked out because this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. It was extremely affordable and works like a dream. I've never had to fix anything on it and have never had any problems with it. I would absolutely recommend this to any homeowners who are in the market for a new furnace. It keeps the house warm in the cold winter months and does not increase the outstanding balance on the utility bills at the end of the month, which was a major concern. If I had to replace it, the only way I would do so if the same company offered a newer model. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Goodman is nothing but expensive junk!!
I purchased my Goodman furnace in the early fall (September) of 2008. It has now been 7 years since and I have had nothing but issues with this unit. I have had it go out many times due to issues with the circuit and have had it repaired upwards of 8 times in this time span. When I originally purchased the unit, I was told it came with a 10 year warranty. I called in because I recently had an issue with it not kicking on when I turned on the heat on the thermostat. The lady with Goodman customer service that I spoke with notified me that unless I called in to register my warranty, it then expired after 5 years! Completely contrary to what I was told at the time of purchase! Goodman is nothing but a complete scam which is surprising considering they are so expensive! Horrible customer service and products! I advise everyone to completely avoid their products!!!

Amazing Furnace with excellent efficency
I bought the Goodman furnace last winter and have been very happy with my purchase. I purchased it online, so I was a little worried that it would cost a lot for shipping, arrive damaged, etc. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that they offer free shipping, and when I got it in the mail, it was perfect! It was also very easy for me to install which is an additional bonus. The price of it was quite a bit, but compared to the competitors, it couldn't be beat! That's what you pay for an amazing product. I don't dislike anything about the product. It is loud but what else can you expect, you know? I have never had to get anything replaced on it. I would definitely recommend this brand to a friend. A couple of my friends have made verbal positive comments but are yet to purchase one themselves.
