The Goodman SSX16 is a high-efficiency, split system air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 16 SEER. The unit features a two-stage Copeland scroll compressor and a compressor sound blanket to reduce noise levels. A three-bladed fan and louvered sound-control top also help reduce sound levels. The condenser coil of the SSX16 is made of corrugated aluminum fins and rifled refrigeration-grade copper tubing. The louvered, heavy gauge galvanized steel cabinet protects the coil and is coated with a corrosion- and rust-resistant finish. The SSX16 uses the environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant.
I contacted [email protected], of Goodman for an assistance with the compressor, which is less than 10 month old. I got printed form reply, telling me how great their quality is, but did not offer any help. Basically saying, too bad.. The VacuVent installed the airconditioner, who do not want to help either.. I strongly ask consumers to avoid Goodman product from what I've experienced, and most of all from VacuVent.
"Goodman AC unit"
I purchased a Goodman ssx16 2.5 ton unit in August after my Trane unit of 11 years died. As of 9-15-10 I have not had any issues and the company who installed it did a very professional job. I would recommend this unit and company to all my family and friends in the future.
The few online reviews of the SSX16 seem divided. A consumer on gardenweb.com states that the SSX16 is not worth the investment, especially when used with certain furnaces. Another consumer said he is impressed with the warranty and price of the unit. A reviewer on doityourself.com had trouble with the compressor being loud and starting often, and said he’d heard of other consumers having the same problem.
Online product registration is required within 60 days of installation for maximum warranty coverage. The Goodman SSX16 is covered by a 10-year limited compressor warranty and a 10-year limited parts warranty.
