Actually we have next to zero Nordyne products up here. They seem to be in the low end market range which ICP and Goodman occupy here (not that they are a bad product) just louder etc. The few I have seen are pretty basic. Maybe they need better marketing to carve their share out. Their trailer furnaces are popular though.

Nordyne is concentrating their efforts South of the border. Beside....they think shipping a furnace by dog sled is a bit undignified

I like that Trane video where they do the torture testing of dropping the condensors from different angles in the cardboard box to set how much damage it absorbs. Not sure if it makes sense as in the real world if someone drops it from the back of a truck the compressor springs may break but what the heck it makes for good solid packaging and less warped and damaged units.

Trane stole that idea from Nordyne.
If any pro here has seen how well boxed and protected a Nordne product is they would agree you are not too likely to get drop damage to any unit unloading it from the truck or taking it down the stairs.

I lost a furnace on the stairs once...opened up the box and no problem ..no ding dents and started right up.

Same with a condenser... deliver truck dropped it from the tail gate ..about five feet ... opened it up no damage to the cabinet or the components.
