All About Goodman
Goodman Manufacturing was founded in 1975 by enterprising HVAC dealer Harold V. Goodman. The company first made flexible air ducts and plastic blade registers for consumers in San Antonio, Texas and the surrounding areas.
Since its inception the company has expanded and become a member of the world’s largest HVAC manufacturing group, Daikin. Today, products are now sold all over the U.S. and Canada, with manufacturing plants in their home state of Texas and in Tennessee.
Goodman offers a range of both domestic and commercial products including heat pumps, packaged systems, furnaces, air handlers and air quality control equipment.
Daikin, Goodman’s new parent company, also manufactures a line of ductless units for single rooms and small homes. Customers can choose between traditional mini A/C units or ductless heat pumps if they wish to forgo a ducted HVAC system.
On top of HVAC equipment, Goodman gives customers integrated A/C control options via its ComfortNet™ technology. The ComfortNet™ control thermostat includes a large display screen with both inside and outside temperature readings. From the control panel, customers receive advanced system diagnostics and can program a continuous fan control.
Goodman ComfortNet™ customers also enjoy integrated whole-home dehumidification and remote-control options. ComfortNet™ systems may be controlled by Google Home or Amazon’s Alexa through voice control. Customers may also monitor and control their ComforNet™ system from any tablet or smartphone with the free Honeywell Total Connect Comfort app.
Limited Warranties are included with all residential Goodman equipment, though products must be registered through Goodman’s online product registration system. According to their policy, Goodman will replace any part “that is found to be defective due to workmanship or materials under normal use and maintenance” free of charge under warranty.
If you wish to change HVAC professionals at any time, maintenance under warranty doesn’t have to be completed by the installing dealer. According to Goodman, any licensed contractor may complete work as long as it is in accordance with the policy.
Homeowners may also wish to purchase additional coverage, as the Goodman limited warranty does not cover weather damage, faulty installation or damage from improper use and maintenance. Goodman’s Asure Extended Service plans offer several levels of additional coverage for up to 99 years depending on your budget.
Some extended service plans also include labor coverage, which isn’t included in the limited warranty.
