"Heat exchanger goes bad in 4 years"
The furnace is only four years old and the heat exchanger went bad. The Cu piping was rusted through and created a leak; extremely poor workmanship/design. Material is under warranty but labor and coolant are not; the total bill is $1,250.

"Goodman brand furnace exceeded my expectations"
This furnace has exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet and very efficient. The average gas usage you will save is around 20%. The average kilowatt savings from just the variable speed fan motor is anywhere from 25% to 75% less wattage. When combined with Goodman brands 5" filter box, this product stays clean and will last a long time. Goodman brand 5" filters usually need to be replaced once a year and are around $30.

After just 5-6 years of ownership of this heating unit it died, and apparently they have a little caveat in their 10-year warranty that you must register the product, otherwise it is only a 5-year warranty. I didn't get the impression that the guy on the phone even thought it was a good product, because he started to compare the $10,000 investment in their heating air-conditioning unit to buying shoes that wouldn't usually last 5 years. In any case, it seems that their product isn't good and their customer service is worse so avoid buying Goodman.

"Best furnace on the market"
I work for a contractor and we install Goodmans. I work for service so I see a lot of different furnaces normally and I can say these are the best furnaces on the market, specifically the GMVC. They are the easiest furnaces to service by far. Easier to service means everything is accessible and it's better for the consumer. The trap on the outside of the furnace makes it far easier to clean and prevent from being plugged up. I can remove the burners from the chamber and clean them without any difficulty; on most furnaces, the burners are welded in and cannot be removed. There are easy to set fan speeds and gas pressure. Not too many things go wrong with them, the odd board or pressure switch. It has the best warranty - 10-year parts and labor, 25-year heat exchanger warranty. The best furnace out there when installed correctly. Most contractors don't set fan speeds or gas pressure. We always do.

Great furnace. Installed it myself. Has run perfectly for 6 years. Easy to install; really liked the fact that I could duct it with pvc. My tenants love that its so cheap to run.

My older Carrier furnace (13 yrs.) developed a crack in the core and was leaking carbon monoxide. The company who was currently servicing my HVAC wanted to replace it with a Bryant. I called a friend who has rental properties and asked for a recommendation. This company gave me a proposal for a Goodman that was $1000's lower than the competition. This gave me cause for concern. Were these units really a junk as the competition tried to point out? Or were bad reviews really caused by poor installation? I decided to go with the Goodman unit Goodman GMVC951155DX (variable speed) and use the additional money on another home improvement project. This high efficiency unit has produced more even heat throughout the home and also lowered my energy costs. I would recommend a Goodman with a qualified installer for best results.

"Good investment so far"
I have had my Goodman gmv9 furnace for six years now with no problems. I had it inspected last year. They replaced one switch. I have saved a lot on my gas bill as well. Good price and great warranty. When I need to buy another it will be a Goodman. I live in the upper Midwest.

"Goodman GMVC95 is a GREAT Furnace."
I work for a very well established residential hvac Company that is not exclusive to any specific brand. We've installed thousands of the Goodman gmvc95 & gmh95 Furnace over the years, and we've never had an issue with these furnaces. These furnaces are solid, they have some of the best technology in the heat exchangers, and back it with the industries best warranties & guarantees. We've also installed thousands of air conditioners ssx14 & ssx16 and they're great too. The Goodman a/c has a lifetime warranty on the compressor, almost all other brands only offer a 10 year warranty. After close to a century of being in business our best advice is to worry more about the company installing the equipment than the brand of the equipment. Good Luck.

"Amazing how comfortable we are"
We am very happy with our purchase from Boonstra's One Hour of our furnace and ac combo. The hot summer we just had actually made my electric bills go down year on year. The install and professionalism of the one hour team is amazing, from purchase to post service I am glad we paid the extra because we are hot in the winter and cool in the summer to whatever temp we want not just comfortable cold or hot!! I would highly recommend you at least get a quote from one hour and see the time they take to fit the system to your house, its the best education I got...wow!

"95% variable speed a winner"
Had a Goodman gmvc95070 installed last fall. Gas bills way down from old 80% furnace, and because the furnace has a high and low fire rate, it matches the heating needs of my house and is very comfortable. Very quiet as well. Dealer said all manufacturers make good furnaces because they are highly regulated. The key is the installer. Bad install will screw up any furnace.
Other GMVC95 Reviews
A homeowner asks the hvac-talk.com forum about choosing between the GMVC95 and the GMVM 96 furnace by Goodman. A professional member recommends the GMVC95 due to better humidity control and better overall value.
A GMVC95 owner writes to justanswer.com that he receives an error message from his control panel each day about a drainage pipe problem. He goes over everything that has been checked by his HVAC technician; the expert online concludes that the homeowner should try a larger PVC drainage pipe, as that is the only thing left that has not been tried.
Another Goodman GMVC95 owner discusses the fact that he wants a different thermostat for his unit on hvac-talk.com. The current thermostat is single-stage, so the owner is not getting the benefits of a two-stage furnace. He plans to install a Goodman air conditioner in the near future, so the online contractors suggest he should check out the ComfortNet system, through which all the HVAC equipment can communicate information such as diagnostics and errors. The owner states that the unit was just installed, so one expert advises that he contact the installing technician for a different thermostat.
