If you are purchasing a heating unit for your home on a tight budget, Goodman Air Conditioning and Heating probably has what you’re looking for. Their units may not be quite as energy-efficient as those offered by other suppliers, but the difference is minimal. Here is some more information to get you started.
Depending on the make and model of the unit you go with, you can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1,700 on Goodman products. You can find an authorized dealer near you, or contact a licensed HVAC specialist for help selecting a system.
With the proper installation and maintenance, Goodman furnaces should last the industry average of 20-25 years. You must regularly service any heating system to keep it in top shape and avoid costly repairs later on.
In addition to having an annual furnace or heating check-up by a professional once a year, it’s important to keep your thermostat at a constant temperature, change your filters every month, and regularly check any units located outdoors for grass clippings, leaves and debris. Make sure your surface professional checks your ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines and oil tank.
There are actually a few different places you can choose to have your Goodman furnace installed. An up-flow system is usually located in the basement, a horizontal system can be located in the attic, and a single package unit can be placed outside or on your roof.
The highest AFUE they offer is 95% on one of their gas furnace models.
Company founder Harold V. Goodman began selling air conditioning units in 1954 in Houston, Texas. Over 20 years later, in 1975, he decided to enter into the manufacturing side of the business and started Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P as a result.
