We use Carrier because the basic foundation of this technology was developed by Carrier, as represented in properly accredited training materials. Carrier can be arrogant & obnoxious at times. Bryant, Trane, York, Lennox are very good also, most other off brands are just copy cats & have little investment in research & devlopement and the cheaper price reflects that. Proper installation & application are the most critical no matter what brand is used. In addition to little or no research expense, cheaper brands many times use thinner copper, steel & aluminum in manufacturing. We try to avoid the cheaper units for our long term clients as the thinner materials result in shorter useful life of equipment. I hate telling a client they need a replacement after a few years because whatever is rotted out.
We sell Goodman, because it is the best value and best warranty and very reliable when installed and maintained properly. I have installed and serviced many of the big brands, but I prefer the Goodman.
Yes that is true! its actually a 99 year warranty but the homeowner has to register with the Mfg. within 90 days from date of purchase. Also, did you know that Goodman purchased Amana a few years ago? And Goodman is the 2 nd most sold in the States?Nordyne started the ten year warranty. And the ten year Quality Pledge.
I know Goodman has a Life Time warranty but the customers who I have talked to would rather buy anew unit after ten years because they would rather have the new technology that would be available at the time of failure.
Now correct me if i am wrong, but the life time compressor warranty only applies to the original home owner doe it not?
