Goodman vs Armstrong Gas Furnace/AC

Hi Everyone,

I have a comparbale quote with all incl (equipment, install, duct work, tstat, humidifier etc.) for both Goodman and Armstrong 95% HIEff, dual stage, 80K BTU (90K for Goodman) furnace and a 3 ton 15 SEER AC for around $6k from 2 different reputable vendors. Goodman warranty is better than Armstrong's.

Could you please share your experiences/pros-cons with either of these 2 companies to help me decide which one to go with?

Thank you in advance.

You should search the threads in this forum. There are several very long posts with answers and rsponses by some HVAC professionals.
It seems to me that in reading those posts, both the products you ask about do not seem to have a good reputation.

I took a quick look at Armstrong when I was shopping. I ended up with a Goodman. I think the main reason was installers (I thought the Goodman dealer would do a better job). I can't remember what components Armstrong uses, but that's something to compare (eg do they use Copeland Scroll compressors on the a/c or GE variable speed blower motor fans for furnaces)

Thank you for your reply. I did see a number of threads on this topic and has good information. I do see good and not so good recommendations on Goodman however, very little info on Armstrong.

I had an armstrong air guy show up at 9pm yesterday. Went through his sales pitch and I told him to leave his companies information and I'll contact him if I'm interested.

Basically my furnace is 22 years old so I definitely need to replace it. He's offering a 95% efficiency furance for $2999.
He worked out the rebate with me to be $1805 not including the 15% tax refund or the monthly gas savings. So I'd pay about $1194 after rebate. Sounds too good to be true.
