Goodman Manufacturing was founded in 1975 by air conditioner contractor Harold Goodman. Goodman purchased Janitrol in 1982 and the Amana brand in 1997. In 2004, Apollo Management, a private investment firm, purchased Goodman for approximately $1.4 billion. In August 2012, Daikin purchased Goodman. Goodman continues to operate as an independent company.
Goodman markets central air conditioners, heat pumps and gas furnaces. The company features a full line of 90% AFUE furnaces, including the GMVM97, with an efficiency of up to 98% AFUE. Goodman also has a line of 80% AFUE gas furnaces. Goodman’s line of six air conditioners ranges from 13 SEER to the DSXC18, which has 18 SEER performance.
Goodman Manufacturing makes relatively few claims about its environmental initiatives. As a whole, the company has received ISO 140000:2004 certification, which is a loose audit of environmental impact. Goodman also notes that, like most other companies, it has switched from older CFC-based coolants (ie Freon) to the more environmentally friendly R-410A (Puron) refrigerant.
Goodman’s standard warranty includes a limited warranty on each unit’s functional parts. Specific details vary by product. The company also offers specialized component warranties on certain components, such as lifetime compressor and heat exchanger limited warranties. Details vary by product. To qualify for any warranty, the homeowner must register their newly installed product within 60 days of installation.
