supply house gave me a new compressor and a new condenser instead of a new unit. unit was 2 years old. i would have loved to swich out the cond.
Only unit I ever had go out under warranty was one I bought from briggs back in 2004,they gave me a whole new condensor to replace it with.
other wise Ive had really good luck with equipment Ive installed over the years including ducane /goodman mostly in last 20 years,but I have started selling some 13 seer ruud and weather king condensors and coils in the last year that seem to be pretty decently built
