The Goodman GMV95 is a discontinued variable-speed gas furnace with integrated controls for activating and monitoring diagnostics, as well as an Energy-saving hot surface ignition system. This furnace is Energy Star rated with an AFUE from 93 to 95%. It is a two-stage heater with a two-speed induced draft blower. The design of the Goodman GMV95 Furnace is CSA certified.
I installed this Goodman GMV95 115k BTU furnace myself. Cost of furnace, AC coil 5 ton, Skuttle filter kit, concentric vent kit, all miscellaneous install parts PVC, fittings black pipe etc., total cost $2300.00. Removal of old unit and installation of a new one took me one weekend. Took out the permits and had fire, electric and plumbing inspectors out and passed with flying colors. Then had my HVAC contractor come out and do the first fire up. He went over a complete check list and fired it up, then he went through another check list return air temp, supply air temp, stack temp 1st stage and 2nd stage, amp draw, vent temp, thermostat settings and more. Works like a dream. I could not be happier. Can’t beat the price or warranty, energy efficient, quiet and easy to install. I did my homework before I started and it paid off.
We purchased a Goodman 46k, 93% unit online from a defunct HVAC company. It was a new, never installed furnace. I have installed many heating & AC units, although most of them were industrial or commercial units. Further, this unit was installed with the dual purpose of heating a remote section of the home while also serving as backup heat in the event that the primary heat source went down. (Trane 2 stage high efficient with A/C coil which I also installed) The Trane has functioned perfectly for 2 plus years. This Goodman unit worked equally well for a period of 2 weeks, then the board decided that the polarity of the power was incorrect despite the fact that nothing was changed. Detailed tests verified that polarity, voltage, & grounding were all well within specs. It seems that the board died in such a short time, a period over which there were no thunderstorms or other household electronic failures. I know enough about modern furnaces that I am well aware that the Trane could also experience a problem at any time in the future. However, my complaint with Goodman is that they advertise their great warranty then point to fine print which says they do not warrant units bought online. I can only imagine how much other fine print & loopholes exist in their warranty. I understand their concerns about idiots butchering installations but on the other hand I am also aware of people in the trade that I would never let touch my furnace. What’s wrong with Goodman in exercising a little common sense by choosing to back what it sells? Goodman probably makes a usable product but do not read to much into their warranty.
"Have had a top of the line GMV95 furnace and a SSZ14 heat pump since 2006."
Have had a top of the line gmv95 furnace and a ssz14 heat pump since 2006. Not a single problem out of it. It’s quiet reliable and keeps the house very comfortable.The cost was reasonable and the installation very professional.I Have read some of the reviews on here about Goodman. All I can say is quit hiring parts changers. 2 or 3 boards on a furnace in a year? Can you say parts changer? All of the parts they use in thier equipment are top quailty: Copeland compressors; GE motors; White Rodgers boards and gas valves. Go ahead and buy that overpriced Carrier or Trane. Just make sure you have a quality contractor. As for me, I’m very happy with the Goodman brand.
"New Goodman GMV95/AC unit"
I had a Goodman gmv95 furnace and a 18seer Amana unit installed. Been 2 years, runs great no problems. Really cut down an my gas and electric bills. I would recommend it
"Goodman GMV950905DXB furnace"
I recently had a Goodman gmv950905dxb furnace installed in my house. It is their top end model that comes with an ecm programmable motor and a 2 stage burner. I am very impressed with how quiet this furnace is. You can program the motor for the size of your house, or the way you want it to run. It is very easy to do once you read the instructions 2 or 3 times. I have the fan run continually on a very slow speed to keep the air inside the house moving. While this is happing, the humidifier is keeping the air to the correct level, and the UV lights are killing any germs or bacteria in the house. I used to dread looking at my gas bill, but this month I am looking forward to seeing just how much money I am saving and having a more comfortable home.
Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are mixed regarding the Goodman Furnaces:
One service tech at HVAC-Talk forums says that his company has preferred selling Goodman over Lennox for two years. Goodman, like Amana, has had absolutely no problems whatsoever and is deemed superior over Lennox, which has been known to be problematic.
A few people observe that Goodman units have weak control response and initiation. Even new wire boards, which are expensive, don't bring forth any positive results.
Yet others at HVAC-Talk have asserted that Goodman is one of the most inferior makes on the market. The biggest gripe: They don't last very long.
Another service tech at HVAC-Talk claim that Goodman units generally receive less-than- enthusiastic support from professionals, but, on the flipside, receive positive reviews from many buyers in the residential sector.
Goodman equipment has a 10-year replacement limited protection on all models, and a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger. Note, however, in 2005 a Goodman representative told FurnaceCompare.com that they WILL NOT BACK their warranty if you buy your furnace online. In 2014, we were told that the warranty on an online purchase would be backed as long as the furnace was installed by a licensed contractor. Double-check on this before you you buy a Goodman furnace online!
