The Goodman GMVC95 furnace is a discontinued series with an AFUE rating of up to 96%. This gas unit was a two-stage, variable-speed furnace designed for for either upflow or horizontal installation, depending on the space available. The unit had an aluminized steel heat exchanger and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger, and utilized a silicon nitride igniter. The GMVC95 was compatible with other Goodman ComfortNet communicating systems.
Had a Goodman gmvc95070 installed last fall. Gas bills way down from old 80% furnace, and because the furnace has a high and low fire rate, it matches the heating needs of my house and is very comfortable. Very quiet as well. Dealer said all manufacturers make good furnaces because they are highly regulated. The key is the installer. Bad install will screw up any furnace.
A homeowner asks the hvac-talk.com forum about choosing between the GMVC95 and the GMVM 96 furnace by Goodman. A professional member recommends the GMVC95 due to better humidity control and better overall value.
A GMVC95 owner writes to justanswer.com that he receives an error message from his control panel each day about a drainage pipe problem. He goes over everything that has been checked by his HVAC technician; the expert online concludes that the homeowner should try a larger PVC drainage pipe, as that is the only thing left that has not been tried.
Another Goodman GMVC95 owner discusses the fact that he wants a different thermostat for his unit on hvac-talk.com. The current thermostat is single-stage, so the owner is not getting the benefits of a two-stage furnace. He plans to install a Goodman air conditioner in the near future, so the online contractors suggest he should check out the ComfortNet system, through which all the HVAC equipment can communicate information such as diagnostics and errors. The owner states that the unit was just installed, so one expert advises that he contact the installing technician for a different thermostat.
Goodman guarantees the heat exchanger with a limited lifetime warranty for the original owner. If the heat exchanger fails within the first 10 years, Goodman will replace the unit. Parts for the GMVC95 are covered by a 10-year limited warranty. Product registration within 60 days of installation is required for maximum warranty coverage.
