The Goodman HVAC brand began in Houston, Texas in the 1970s, and although today they’re owned by Daikin Industries, Goodman brand HVAC systems continue to be designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA. In fact, they just opened a massive new facility just outside Houston, Texas that centralizes all their operations to help better serve customers. Goodman’s focus is on value—providing reliable, high-quality HVAC systems at an affordable price.
As part of that focus on value, Goodman offers some of the best warranty protection in the HVAC industry. For instance, their 16 SEER DSZC16 heat pump comes with a Lifetime Compressor Limited Warranty that’s good for as long as you own your home. And that’s in addition to the standard 10 Year Parts Limited Warranty.
Their many models of gas furnaces also come with some great warranty protection. The specific warranties available vary depending on the model, but the warranties available include a Lifetime Heat Exchanger Limited Warranty (again, good as long as you own your home) and even a 10 Year Unit Replacement Limited Warranty that will provide you with an entire new furnace if the heat exchanger fails in the first ten years of ownership.
In order to decrease the chances that you’ll ever need to use those warranties, Goodman extensively tests their products. In fact, every unit is tested three times before leaving the assembly line. Thanks to their reliability and commitment to customer satisfaction, Goodman has earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Inside of a Goodman, you’ll find many of the same reliable components found in more expensive brands. That includes the sturdy two-stage Copeland UltraTech scroll compressor inside of the DSZC16 Heat Pump as well as the aluminized steel, tubular primary heat exchanger used in Goodman gas furnaces.
Goodman’s product lines are somewhat simpler and more streamlined than some other brands. They offer four models of heat pumps and five of air conditioners. Their most efficient models are up to 18 SEER and 9.5 HSPF rated.
Goodman offers more options when it comes to gas furnaces, with several different 80% AFUE models as well as high-efficiency models with up to 98% AFUE performance.
Overall, the Goodman is known for building a hard-working, reliable HVAC system that’s a great value, with strong warranty protection that makes it a smart investment for years to come.
