Goodman Air Conditioner Series Details

Basic/Good- Economy Level:

A basic level air conditioner by goodman can be a very good option for those who’re looking for a normal ac. Basic level AC’s are called single staged ac.

The overall price of the basic unit is really low compared to others. Parts price is also normal and easily available that makes maintenance very easy. The basic level air conditioners are not that energy efficient.1

Better- Mid-range    

The better level air conditioner is known as two-staged ac. These types of ac have great SEER ratings and they’re also very efficient.

The overall price of the better level ac is high compared to basic ones. The part price is also on the normal/ little above average side. Since these are energy efficient you can expect to save on energy bills.2

Best- Premium Range

This is the most expensive type of ac unit. These are called variable-capacity air conditioners. These types of air conditioners are very energy efficient.

The parts of these types of ac cost very high which makes maintaining these air conditioners very tough. The cost you save on energy bills will look like a chunk change in front of the cost of maintenance.

Pros and Cons Of GOODMAN Air Conditioners:

  • Goodman is a known brand and it is known for its reliability. Goodman doesn’t offer flashy features but what they offer is an overall reliable product that you can trust.
  • Another strong point of goodman is its accessibility. You can buy it from anywhere, if you decide to buy it now online you’ll be able to get it easily. This model of business has also hurt their reputation that I’ll explain in the cons section.
  • Their central ac lineup is backed by the most comprehensive warranties that you’ll ever find.
  • Their central ac lineup is very energy efficient. Even if you go for the lowest level model, you’ll still save some bucks on the energy bills.
  • Now earlier I have mentioned that their accessibility model is hurting their reputation. The problem I want to convey is that any normal/unprofessional guy can install it. They have given liberty for the installation. Any cheap and unprofessional guy from your local market can install it.
  • Installation is one of the major aspects that determine the longevity of the ac. As an HVAC technician, I have installed a few goodman’s and I never heard any complaints from those people. If you go for some cheap non-licensed technician and they end up messing with the installation then you’ll face many problems in long term.

Important Tip: If you’re looking to get a new goodman ac. So you must go for the licensed technician only for the installation. Don’t go for some cheap non-licensed Van guy for installation.
