It's a Goodman GMV95 with 10 years of Parts and Labor warranty. After they installed it, I did some research and I think the price is a bit high. Can someone tell me if $3600 is a bit too high for a Goodman brand.
Yes the unit only cost $1200.

Be leary, goodman is NOT a well built brand!!! They are built to last for about, 10 years. Stick with a good line like carrier, Bryant, trans, American standard, lennox. These manufactures tend to build better quality equipment.

I've had a Goodman, 55% efficiency for 4 years now. I haven't had any problems with it. I get it checked (cleaned) every two years, not every one like is recommended. It is a very reliable unit. It has the ceramic ?heat exchanger, which was recommended and has a lifetime guarantee. The 10 year warranty was very attractive to me and I'm glad I still have 6 years left on it.

I got a new central A/C unit too, which is very cold in the summer.

I'm very happy w. both units.

We purchased a Dunkirk oil steam boiler from Sears in the spring of 2008. The first night it kicked on in the fall, the burner died. We had "Master Protection," but they won't come in the middle of the night to fix it, so we had to pay about $300 to have it replaced by our oil company. After several three years with several other malfunctions, the low water shut-off failed and ran the boiler dry until it cracked. The "Master Protection" was still in effect, but it took us 18 days without heat or hot water to get Sears to come in and replace the unit. They had to have two different companies come in a week apart from each other to verify that it was cracked. It wasn't just the time and discomfort, but the dozens of hours I spent on the phone never getting a straight answer out of anyone... subcontractors lying to me, care people lying to me.

About 18 months after the full system replacement, we just had another crack in the boiler. This time, there doesn't appear to be any reason. We are now into five weeks without heat or hot water. No one there knows what they are doing. I am pretty sure they draw it out to get you to pay for a replacement yourself and count on people not suing them. It is a giant scam! They agree that they are responsible and will replace it, but after four weeks, it finally reached the local office that schedules installation. I spoke with the manager and voiced my frustration with the pace of the project and the general incompetence I had encountered. He said, "This is the first I have heard of this. Eva Catone will order the unit tomorrow." (My lawyer and I had been in contact with his office for about a week up to that point, leaving him several messages). I spoke with Eva the next day, and she said she had ordered the unit and would tell me when they could install the unit by the end of the day. When I called at the end of the day, she said that she was still looking for a boiler and that she would tell me by the afternoon on the next day. I called her on the next day, and she said they needed to size the boiler before ordering it, and they would send someone on the next Tuesday.

I don't know if they are trying to wait us out until we just pay for the boiler ourselves, or if they don't actually do any work or what, but the entire Sears organization has truly been exceptional in its ineptitude.

I'm an hvac technician in Ohio. The Goodmans and amanas are very well built and dependable.Trane does not back their warranty even for us dealers. I seen a post for a kenmore....lol..its a goodman! They label for kenmore, westinghouse, whirlpool and others too. Goodman just got bought out by Daiken..an equally wonderful company.Goodman will still remain the same and made be in the usa, but will have more technology brought to the name for the mini split systems to compete better with mitsubishi.

Dick Zimmermann, Perhaps it is not the fault of Amana gas furnace but the contractor who remained unable to fix it in proper way..I have also Amana furnace and I am very much satisfied with it. Perhaps I hired cleanairheat.ca

I have an Amama P-Tec wall mount unit. The control board has completely failed 4-5 times since installed in 2003. The control board is a very high percentage of the overall cost of the unit. Amana has replaced the defective controls boards but refuses to pay for the service call and labor to put the "newest" board in. We spent $ 300.00 to get it replaced this year alone. Amana says they won't be replacing any more defective control boards. We will dispose of the unit the next time it fails. It will fail by the end of next winter. I will never buy an Amana product again.

I just got a quote for the same furnace in Western Wisconsin, for a little under $2000.00 installed.
