Goodman GSH13 Heat Pump Overview

The GSH13 heat pump is a basic model, with efficiency ratings of 13 SEER and 7.7 HSPF (for cooling and heating, respectively). Different versions of this model have cooling capacities of between 1.5 and 5 tons – that is, between 17,600 BTU/h and 55,500 BTH/h. Heating capacity ranges from 16,800 to 55,500 BTU/h. Noise levels fall between 71 and 77 dB. At this time, the GSH13 seems to be the lowest-rated and least expensive of the heat pumps manufactured by Goodman.

The GSH13 uses R-22 coolant. This is an older kind of coolant, more commonly known by the brand name Freon, that can damage the ozone layer.

Very Unsatisfied

Bought this unit in 07 for just under $3000.00 installed. Worked good for the first year. 2nd thru the 4th year has been a maintance nitemare. Unit would not heat, unit would not cool. 2 thermosatas, 1 transformer, 2 enviromental kits, a re-charge, later and all under 5 years, and it still does not work, Oh did i forget to mention the reverse valve also was replaced!!! Told my dealer that a new unit was in order, nah, will get this fixed. When ???, I would not recomend this company to anybody.

GSH13 Warranty

The GSH13 comes with a 5-year limited parts warranty. The warranty only applies in the location where the unit is first installed. It entitles the holder to a replacement for broken parts, but not labor for installing the replacement. The owner must also return the defective component to Goodman. The warranty becomes invalid in the case of disasters (such as floods and fires) and faulty repairs. Goodman will not replace parts for units installed outside of the United States or Canada. Be sure to register your air conditioner with Goodman to claim the standard warranty.
