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.
Installed a 70,000 btu gmv95 dual stage, 95 afue unit with the variable dc fan motor, very happy, tried initially with the original Tstat, big mistake, replaced with a Honeywell 2 stage programmable, what a huge difference, only comes on high heat when recovering to room temp at 6 am, otherwise I can’t even tell it’s running, very quiet, very tight temp control and the power savings are unbelievable, when the other furnace was running I thought the power meter would blow up, this unit in low stage (90% of the time) consumes 75 watts (a light bulb) located in Ontario Canada, bought it direct from an outfit in Ohio, had it trucked to upstate ny and picked it up myself, hired a local licensed installer ($700) and saved a ton of dough (half what the local hvac guy quoted me) register the warranty yourself online and have proof of licensed installation and the warranty is good, also, gonna get a grand back from the gov on an an energy rebate, sweet

Goodman gmv95 70000btu with Goodman box type media merv 11 filter and honeywell focus pro 6000(single stage) 2 pipe direct venting installed Oct/2008. As everyone knows this past winter was brutal, I saved roughly $500 dollars in natural gas and the furnace from the first start up has been working flawlessly, very quiet and reliable. Never hesitated to turn up the thermostat as I seen my monthly gas bill go down, past winter was very cozy without costing me a fortune. My deciding factors for purchasing this unit. 1. 95%EE/DC motor 2. Excellent warranty 3. Very good pricing When I first started researching furnaces I was overwhelmed with the amount of info out there, friends who were in the HVAC trade had their own preferences and online was hard to get a straight answer. So, for the money and warranty I took a chance and let me tell you am I ever happy I did. You can’t go wrong with Goodman’s warranty and pricing, really! Now that I have a Goodman furnace it really surprises me to see bad reviews on Goodman maybe it’s on older units not sure. Keeprite VS90 was another unit I considered seemed like a good unit until I saw their warranty, at the time it was lifetime on heat exchangers and 7 years on parts now its 10 years on parts but even at that Keeprite is very picky with yearly servicing and must show proof before any warranty kick’s in. That SUCK’S! My HVAC friends tell me that yearly servicing on gas furnaces is not always necessary. Keeprite also uses a crimped clamshell heat exchanger. I’ve had problems with my old Carrier clamshell heat exchanger I like Goodman’s tubular design. Goodman is not junk it is good junk! Take a chance you will not regret it. Hope this help’s!
I bought the newest Goodman GMV95 two stage variable DC furnace for this heating season, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s ultra quite, works only as hard as it needs to to maintain a comfortable temperature, and the blower has plenty of oomph to push air all through my house. It really shines when it’s used with the proper two stage thermostat (mine is a Honeywell VisionPro). Everything seems to be really well built and solid. It also uses so little electricity that I immediately noticed a lower hydro bill!
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!
