The Goodman split system GSC13 air conditioner is a 13 SEER unit. Models in this condenser series range from 1.5 to 5 tons, with BTU/H values that range from 18,000 to 53,000. This air conditioner series complies with safety standards and is ETL listed.
The GSC13’s condenser coil is made from corrugated aluminum fins and rifled copper tubing. For quiet operation, the three-bladed fan is covered by a louvered sound control top. A salt-sprayed powder paint finish coats the galvanized steel cabinet, and brass liquid and suction service valves with sweat connection are incorporated into the design. The GSC13 uses R-22 refrigerant and comes with an R-22 piston kit.
This unit sucks, 6 years old, broke down 2 times and now its not under warranty so it has to come out of my pocket if I want to get it fixed. I've only had it for 4 years but the builder of our house didn't register it so it sucks for me. Don't buy Goodman ac.
"Very reliable A/C unit"
I installed our goodman Gsc1304818a and all style coil with txv and 7/8 line set 2years ago and my wife loves it. The temperature here in Lake Elsinore is at triple digits at least 3 months out of the year, and our temperature inside is always total comfort within minutes. And our electric bill is less than 150 dollars a month even with pool pump on 5 hours a day. Before it was replaced we had a carrier 42000btu that ran all the time and never cooled down the house.
Lake Elsinore CA.
I had a new 13 seer ( 3 ton) installed. It may have operated for 6 hours before the compressor apparently went south. I now have the pleasure of paying for another service call and the time/labor to remove and replace the faulty compressor. Whether or not the replacement compressor will be provided under warranty is still an open question. Piece of junk so far as I am concerned.
"Goodman is junk"
Installed June 2009. Have had 12 service calls for various problems with a/c or heat in that time. Now unit does not cool and three different a/c repair companies can't figure out what is wrong. Don't even consider buying a Goodman.
"Beyond very unsatisfied"
Had unit installed by Goodman contractor in July 2007. Unit serviced every year. Unit frequently needed topping off of refrigerant. This year major refrigerant leak from evaporator coil due to formancy corrosion. Evaporator coil to be replaced with new style aluminum coil. Goodman contractor doing repair. Cost $2,000. Goodman air conditioner, never again. Class Action Legal Suit, count me in.
The reviewers at qualitysmith.com consider the Goodman GSC13 a low-end unit that doesn’t offer longevity in warranty coverage or much in energy cost savings, but is well-priced. As an R-22 operating product, purchasing this air conditioner is discouraged by this particular reviewer.
Contractors on hvac-talk.com agree the warranty on this entry level unit leaves something to be desired. A homeowner considering installing this unit in his new home is told by experts on this discussion forum that other entry-level units offer more features for a similar price and are well worth considering over the GSC13. Others point out that this system is on the noisy side.
The Goodman GSC13 comes with a 5-year limited parts warranty, which includes the compressor. The warranty applies to models manufactured after January 1, 2010.
