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.

"Do not buy!!"
I've had the unit 2 years. In the first MONTH, the coil went out and we had to have it repaired. Now, 2 years later, the coil goes out again. Piece of crap. Thank God for a 10yr p&l warranty or I'd blow my brains out. As it stands now, it will be 2 days to get the part and we're out A/C all weekend on the hottest day of the year! Never again Goodman, never again.
"I Love My Energy Efficient Goodman Air Conditioner"
I have owned my Goodman central air conditioner for five years now and I have to say it is one of the best on the market. It runs in the middle energy efficiency wise but that is still very good. I like the energy efficiency, keeps my electric bills low; I like how quiet it runs, how well it cools my house. Also the best part, I have had NO PROBLEMS IN FIVE YEARS! I really have no complaints about my Goodman central air conditioner. I would buy the same brand again because of all the details listed above, not that I will need to based on how well it is running now. I would recommend this to a friend to because of how much I like it and how cheap it was for the high quality I got. Overall, I would give my Goodman central air conditioner Five Stars…
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.
