Any advice on a goodman central air/heating system? I've had some installers say Goodman is bad and was adviced to stay away from it, due to bearings not lasting long etc. Goodman systems are very cheap (I can get a high efficiency system 92.8 and a 13 SEER compressor for around $2,100). My parents had have a Goodman system for the past 7 years and there are no problems whatsoever. What's your take on it?

Have a client that bought me a goodman A/C unit for cost (3 ton 13 seer) and I had a local installer put it in for $150. Couldn't beat the deal, even if it doesn't last forever, money was tight at the time considering every other improvement was costing us double what we planned.

On year four at this point and it's never been touched. Runs a lot too as we undersized it for humidity control. House stays fairly cool on its' own, but humidity is a bummer.

I finally did buy the Goodman unit (92%, 80 btu and 2.5 13 seer condensor), my father and i installed all the duct work throughout the entire house except for the basement. My question is how much should a hvac contractor charge me for connecting the equimpent, and additional freon, basement plenums, labor etc. i just need someone to hook it up in the basement and run the gas line to the furnace and electric from the box? so far i had one guy wanting to charge me $800. is that a reasonable estimate? thanx for the info.
