    Not the worst but not the best. Shop installer then go with whatever unit they're selling.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      It's all throw away junk these days - no different than a decent washer or dryer / IMHO.

      Goodman = 9-13 years then toss
      Other majors (Carrier, Trane, etc...) = 11-15 years then toss

      Depending on maintenance & repair practices of course.

      Rather than spend a bunch on a brand, your money might be better invested in well designed and quality fabricated air distribution. Especially if your energy rates are high.

          I never met a Janitrol that I didn't like!!! I've installed many a Junkatrol!!! Just as good as anybody elses equipment. Pull the pretty name tags off of 'em and they're all the same.

            Goodman has come a long ways since the Janitrol days. Do they have a higher rate of initial failures if measured against Trane...maybe. I believe you might find it is because more Goodmans are installed by low-skiilled installers. They do sell a ton of stuff to the apartment trade. So a lot of seemingly bad units may in reality be bad installs.
