goodmanGasFurnaceGoodman gas furnaces became a best-selling brand with the right combination of:

  • Quality that is good, even if not quite equal to Trane, American Standard, Carrier and Lennox
  • Low cost, with Goodman gas furnaces starting at less than $700
  • The best warranties in the home heating industry including replacement of the entire furnace if the heat exchanger fails on top models

A new era began for Goodman in 2012 when the brand was purchased by Daikin Global, one of the world’s first-tier HVAC manufacturing companies. So far, Daikin has continued Goodman’s approach of being the low-cost leader with outstanding warranties. In addition, the parent company is using its large R&D budget to improve the quality of Goodman products.

Warranty applies to original furnace owner only and is not applicable to rental properties.

Goodman has one of the best warranties in the HVAC industry. They will replace your entire furnace if the heat exchanger fails. However, you have to register your warranty within 60 days from the date of purchase. This is an important point as most customers have had complains about warranties afterwards.

Professional Contractor Feedback

A quality installation is much better than any model or brand you choose nowadays. The Goodman brand has established itself in the market, and as long as you get a good installer, you are good to go.

The Goodman might be that good, but there are some few cons every homeowner needs to be aware of before making a purchase. You may have to file all your warranty registration properly as some customers have had complaints when seeking repairs. If you have any part replaced during the warranty period, then you have to register it too for it to be covered.

Some customers have also had complaints that the warranty is for five years although Goodman claims its ten years. You have to check this properly when buying one.
