Bought brand new and expected it to last. A component on the motor Bell housing burnt (capacitor possibly). It is no longer made, cannot find a replacement. Designed to fail with no manufacturer support to stand behind this product.

Boo hoo

Blower motor burnt up after 9 years. No warranty! $1,200 for a new motor. May as well buy a new furnace. Built to breakdown.

A good installation means a great furnace

Going on seven years as of this writing. Very reliable and trouble free, a lot is due to the expert installer, which is so important. Teamed up with 2 stage thermostat which provides comfortable steady heat. As this furnace ages, I plan to have it serviced/checked annually.

Junk...poor quality & service

We paid nearly $10,000 dollars to install this furnace in 2009 and the blower motor has already burnt out. The cost to replace it is $1,200 and Goodman is refusing to honor the 10-year warranty. I strongly recommend to never purchase a product from Goodman. Quality is poor and so is the customer service.

Feeling frustrated and misled and cold

We purchased our furnace in October, 2009 right before we retired. Our goal was to get a new furnace that was energy efficient before we were on a minimum senior income. What a disappointment! Three years and two months later we lost heat, of course over Christmas which meant a costly service call. The flame rod had to be replaced. Two years later we had the same problem and were told these had to be replaced every two years. October 23, 2015 we had a regular fall maintenance check by the dealer from whom we purchased the furnace. The next morning we had no heat and a burning smell in the house. Again it was a weekend so we had an emergency call. We were told the motor was burnt out and as with all other reviews I have read the ten year warranty would not be honoured because the online registration had not been completed. We do not recall being instructed or encouraged to do this. We have several friends looking to replace furnaces and certainly would not recommend this brand. Although there is a saving on energy the costly repair bills are not offset by the savings!

Does not honor warranties

Goodman has a catch in its warranty that stipulates it must be registered within 60 days after original installation. If you send a warranty card in and they don't document it, your are out of luck. My circulator motor (blower) failed after less than 7 and half years. It should be covered for 10 years, but they denied the claim. Best advice is to stay away from Goodman no matter how hard your installer recommends them.

I purchased a Goodman furnace in January, 2010 from a building supply company in Steinbach, which is about 20 minutes out of Winnipeg. I liked the fact that Goodman was offering a 10-year warranty on the parts and a 10-year full replacement. We have had nothing but issues with the unit every winter and they always seems to be the same issues - a circuit board, sensors, condensation build up and the motor. I had the Goodman account manager in my home last year after I said I wanted the unit out of our house. I was told he was going speak to his superior in Toronto to make sure I was satisfied and get back to me, but that never happened. I never write reviews about products but the word needs to get out that the furnace is not reliable. If you live in area where you need your furnace periodically then maybe it's fine, but in the Canadian climate, no. I write this review as I sit and wait to hear back from a service tech to arrange a time to service the failed unit again.

5 yrs NO PROBLEMS GMV95 70000btu

I don't understand why people are saying Goodman is not a good equipment. I had a gmv95 70000btu installed 5 years ago and never had a problem with this model. Never had it cleaned, only changed my filter regularly myself. The only thing I did was upgrade my single stage thermostat to a two stage which I highly recommend. I paid $2800 Canadian installed taxes in. My friends are installing Carrier, Lennox etc. Paying prices of $8000 plus for basically what I have and some are already having small problems. They are shocked when I tell them that I have a Goodman paid $2800 and never had a problem in 5 years. Maybe it was the installation or this particular model but whatever the case I think I made an excellent purchase. I hope this can help some of you decide as buying a new furnace can be a very frustrating process. Good luck!

Service Manager

I replaced a Patriot fuel oil furnace with a gmv950704cxb lp Furnace, and ssz160481 Heat Pump. I could have put in Carrier because I work for an authorized dealer but chose Goodman because of ease of installation, product history, features, and faith in the product. Not only have I saved on my seasonal fuel and electric costs but I gained comfort too. This system is by far the best investment that I have made in the last 20 years.

Goodman GMV95 furnace

I installed this Goodman GMV95 115k BTU furnace myself. Cost of furnace, AC coil 5 ton, Skuttle filter kit, concentric vent kit, all miscellaneous install parts PVC, fittings black pipe etc., total cost $2300.00. Removal of old unit and installation of a new one took me one weekend. Took out the permits and had fire, electric and plumbing inspectors out and passed with flying colors. Then had my HVAC contractor come out and do the first fire up. He went over a complete check list and fired it up, then he went through another check list return air temp, supply air temp, stack temp 1st stage and 2nd stage, amp draw, vent temp, thermostat settings and more. Works like a dream. I could not be happier. Can't beat the price or warranty, energy efficient, quiet and easy to install. I did my homework before I started and it paid off.

We purchased a Goodman 46k, 93% unit online from a defunct HVAC company. It was a new, never installed furnace. I have installed many heating & AC units, although most of them were industrial or commercial units. Further, this unit was installed with the dual purpose of heating a remote section of the home while also serving as backup heat in the event that the primary heat source went down. (Trane 2 stage high efficient with A/C coil which I also installed) The Trane has functioned perfectly for 2 plus years. This Goodman unit worked equally well for a period of 2 weeks, then the board decided that the polarity of the power was incorrect despite the fact that nothing was changed. Detailed tests verified that polarity, voltage, & grounding were all well within specs. It seems that the board died in such a short time, a period over which there were no thunderstorms or other household electronic failures. I know enough about modern furnaces that I am well aware that the Trane could also experience a problem at any time in the future. However, my complaint with Goodman is that they advertise their great warranty then point to fine print which says they do not warrant units bought online. I can only imagine how much other fine print & loopholes exist in their warranty. I understand their concerns about idiots butchering installations but on the other hand I am also aware of people in the trade that I would never let touch my furnace. What's wrong with Goodman in exercising a little common sense by choosing to back what it sells? Goodman probably makes a usable product but do not read to much into their warranty.

Have had a top of the line GMV95 furnace and a SSZ14 heat pump since 2006.

Have had a top of the line gmv95 furnace and a ssz14 heat pump since 2006. Not a single problem out of it. It's quiet reliable and keeps the house very comfortable.The cost was reasonable and the installation very professional.I Have read some of the reviews on here about Goodman. All I can say is quit hiring parts changers. 2 or 3 boards on a furnace in a year? Can you say parts changer? All of the parts they use in thier equipment are top quailty: Copeland compressors; GE motors; White Rodgers boards and gas valves. Go ahead and buy that overpriced Carrier or Trane. Just make sure you have a quality contractor. As for me, I'm very happy with the Goodman brand.

Goodman GMV950905DXB furnace

I recently had a Goodman gmv950905dxb furnace installed in my house. It is their top end model that comes with an ecm programmable motor and a 2 stage burner. I am very impressed with how quiet this furnace is. You can program the motor for the size of your house, or the way you want it to run. It is very easy to do once you read the instructions 2 or 3 times. I have the fan run continually on a very slow speed to keep the air inside the house moving. While this is happing, the humidifier is keeping the air to the correct level, and the UV lights are killing any germs or bacteria in the house. I used to dread looking at my gas bill, but this month I am looking forward to seeing just how much money I am saving and having a more comfortable home.

Good unit

Installed a 70,000 btu gmv95 dual stage, 95 afue unit with the variable dc fan motor, very happy, tried initially with the original Tstat, big mistake, replaced with a Honeywell 2 stage programmable, what a huge difference, only comes on high heat when recovering to room temp at 6 am, otherwise I can't even tell it's running, very quiet, very tight temp control and the power savings are unbelievable, when the other furnace was running I thought the power meter would blow up, this unit in low stage (90% of the time) consumes 75 watts (a light bulb) located in Ontario Canada, bought it direct from an outfit in Ohio, had it trucked to upstate ny and picked it up myself, hired a local licensed installer ($700) and saved a ton of dough (half what the local hvac guy quoted me) register the warranty yourself online and have proof of licensed installation and the warranty is good, also, gonna get a grand back from the gov on an an energy rebate, sweet

Home Owner

Goodman gmv95 70000btu with Goodman box type media merv 11 filter and honeywell focus pro 6000(single stage) 2 pipe direct venting installed Oct/2008. As everyone knows this past winter was brutal, I saved roughly $500 dollars in natural gas and the furnace from the first start up has been working flawlessly, very quiet and reliable. Never hesitated to turn up the thermostat as I seen my monthly gas bill go down, past winter was very cozy without costing me a fortune. My deciding factors for purchasing this unit. 1. 95%EE/DC motor 2. Excellent warranty 3. Very good pricing When I first started researching furnaces I was overwhelmed with the amount of info out there, friends who were in the HVAC trade had their own preferences and online was hard to get a straight answer. So, for the money and warranty I took a chance and let me tell you am I ever happy I did. You can't go wrong with Goodman's warranty and pricing, really! Now that I have a Goodman furnace it really surprises me to see bad reviews on Goodman maybe it's on older units not sure. Keeprite VS90 was another unit I considered seemed like a good unit until I saw their warranty, at the time it was lifetime on heat exchangers and 7 years on parts now its 10 years on parts but even at that Keeprite is very picky with yearly servicing and must show proof before any warranty kick's in. That SUCK'S! My HVAC friends tell me that yearly servicing on gas furnaces is not always necessary. Keeprite also uses a crimped clamshell heat exchanger. I've had problems with my old Carrier clamshell heat exchanger I like Goodman's tubular design. Goodman is not junk it is good junk! Take a chance you will not regret it. Hope this help's!

I bought the newest Goodman GMV95 two stage variable DC furnace for this heating season, and I couldn't be happier. It's ultra quite, works only as hard as it needs to to maintain a comfortable temperature, and the blower has plenty of oomph to push air all through my house. It really shines when it's used with the proper two stage thermostat (mine is a Honeywell VisionPro). Everything seems to be really well built and solid. It also uses so little electricity that I immediately noticed a lower hydro bill!

Other GMV95 Reviews

Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are mixed regarding the Goodman Furnaces:

  • One service tech at HVAC-Talk forums says that his company has preferred selling Goodman over Lennox for two years. Goodman, like Amana, has had absolutely no problems whatsoever and is deemed superior over Lennox, which has been known to be problematic.
  • A few people observe that Goodman units have weak control response and initiation. Even new wire boards, which are expensive, don't bring forth any positive results.

    Yet others at HVAC-Talk have asserted that Goodman is one of the most inferior makes on the market. The biggest gripe: They don't last very long.

  • Another service tech at HVAC-Talk claim that Goodman units generally receive less-than- enthusiastic support from professionals, but, on the flipside, receive positive reviews from many buyers in the residential sector.

GMV95 Warranty

Goodman equipment has a 10-year replacement limited protection on all models, and a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger. Note, however, in 2005 a Goodman representative told that they WILL NOT BACK their warranty if you buy your furnace online. In 2014, we were told that the warranty on an online purchase would be backed as long as the furnace was installed by a licensed contractor. Double-check on this before you you buy a Goodman furnace online!
