Sub is swapping Amana for Goodman


Zunk,
Let the installer purchase the unit, a lot of installers will not touch a customer provided unit.

Sub is swapping Amana for Goodman


Well, it's too late for that. I have purchased the HP. It's true though that most won't install anything but "their' brand. I guess it's familiarity and the markup factor. I found one to install mine, but he tried to talk me out of it. He of course will only warranty the job.
His price to just swap out a 2ton unit in a basement height crawl space was $3600. It would be a Carrier 13SEER,8.0HSPF w/Puron. To install my unit is total ~$3000, but that's with a 14SEER and 8.5HSPF Goodman. So it seems like a better deal, if he does it right-same skill and care he would for his Carrier units. Hopefully so. What do you think?

As long as the Goodman model contains Puron, you should be ok. The older type AC charged units are being phased out and will be forbidden to service, I believe in about 5 to 7 years. I am not an HVAC, so check that out.

Goodman is a very basic unit. Carrierman is right about the cabinets, they are cheaply built, they don't fit together and seal up very well.They're thinner metal and they vibrate more than other units. they usually don't have much protection, like high and low pressure switches etc.They have the long warranty because they had to do that to get people to buy them. You're right, installation is one of the most important things, but Goodman is a low-end unit.

Well, Patman, are you sure you're not thinking of the old style cabinets? Until '06 they had the rod-style coil protection, now they have a complete steel louvered type, with solid corners. Looks about on par with the better units to me. The unit I have has a low press switch, which according to their ads they have always had.
Like I was saying, the component parts are identical or very similar in most of these brands, from a fairly small bunch of manufacturers.
But hey, I am certainly no expert or even a HVAC installer. You guys sure could be right, (I hope not!) I'll try to report back with any probs I might have.
