"Affordable heat"
This unit came with a 1047 square foot home I purchased in April 2015. It is matched with a Goodman air handler and outdoor GSX13 condensing unit. This is my first experience with a high efficiency furnace. I am pleased so far. It does the job with little drama although the draft inducer motor startup was a new experience. It is a 60,000 BTU unit, natural gas. It has performed flawlessly thus far. The furnace was professionally installed by a licensed HVAC contractor, not a backyard hack job. That is probably why it works as well as it does. Time will tell how reliable it is. I did find out it was built in one of Goodman's unionized factories in Tennessee.

"Great product for a great price"
I bought this furnace a little over a year ago and I must say that it has yet to let me down. It was easy to get going at first, I had my neighbor next door help me install it because I'm not too handy with this kind of stuff. He said it wasn't too hard to install, however, for someone who knows what they're doing or wants to take the time to Google it. We haven't had any problems with it since we bought it and haven't needed any repairs or anything. I would absolutely recommend this product or any Goodman product to a friend as it does exactly what it is intended to do for a reasonable price. The only thing I dislike about it is that I wish there was a way to buy one that's not so heavy because I ended up having to pay some people to carry it for me and even transport it. This is a small request, however, because transportation is hopefully something you will only have to do once with a product like this.

"My Furnace in my house"
I have owned the furnace for just over 2 years. We put it in when we decided to install AC in the house. I really like how quiet it is within the house. It heats the house really well but the AC doesn't cool the upstairs as cool as I would like. That would be my biggest dislike about it but I am not 100% sure if that is the furnace or the install. So far I have not had any maintenance on it since we just put it in. I would probably recommend it to a friend, just would want them to check on the install to ensure the upstairs is cool enough.
