The Goodman GSZ14 is a high-efficiency heat pump with an efficiency rating of up to 15 SEER and 9.0 HSPF. A high-density foam compressor sound blanket, sound-control top and high-capacity muffler help to keep operating sound levels as low as 72 decibels. A copper tube/enhanced aluminum fin coil provides optimal heat transfer, and a factory-installed bi-flow liquid line filter drier protects the system from debris and moisture. Service valves with sweat connections, top and side access and easily accessible gauge ports provide quick and easy serviceability. A heavy-gauge galvanized steel cabinet with a baked-on powder coat finish and rust-resistant screws protect the unit from corrosion and weather hazards.
I purchased a new condenser/air handling unit made by Goodman which has a 10 year warranty. The air handling unit was bad out of the box and has again blown. Although I am within my 10 year warranty, Goodman refuses to warranty the unit because they say the registration card was not filled out within the first 60 days after purchase. The card is gone, was it lost in the mail? Did one of their peoplelose it? Were the numbers transposed when they typed the information into the computer? Who knows? All I know is I have purchased my last Goodman product and I hope no one else make the same mistake!
"Best Heat Pump in the market!"
The 1.5 ton Goodman 14 seer is by far the best heat pump on the market. I have had this heat pump for 3 years now and have not had any issues with it. I like it a lot because it is not only a good value in terms of price but also very reliable. The only challenge I see is in its installation. The Goodman 14 seer is a very complicated system and unless you are a certified hvac technician, you shouldn't be installing a Goodman 14 seer yourself. This also helps you not to void your warranty. If I were to do it all over again, I will definitely buy the Goodman 14 seer again and recommend it highly.
A homeowner on hvac-talk.com trying to choose between the GSZ14 and an AirTemp unit noted that the GSZ14 was $700 cheaper but decided to go with the AirTemp because of a higher SEER rating and a better contractor. A homeowner on doityourself.com asked what the difference was between the GSZ14 and SSZ14 and was told one difference is the warranty. The homeowner decided not to go with either unit, instead choosing a Goodman GSZ13.
Online registration is required within 60 days of installation for maximum warranty coverage. The warranty for the Goodman GSZ14 heat pump is comprised of the following:
