You know i am a heating dealer and right now i sell Goodman equipment. It is very interesting reading these post. I would never sell a unit that has motors with boards like you guys are talking. I cant believe the pricing you were talking about. I sell 95percent
furnace, but if they told me that it had a $1,000.00 motor in it then i would dump that brand in a flash. I am glad i am getting close to retirement. I don't like the fact that i am dealing with new refrigerant that has twice as mush pressure as the old R22.
Thats why i won't sell heat pumps. The gov. said we had to go to the new refrigerant, but the industry has not built valves that can work well with it. so a lot of people have trouble with there units. There is so much going on today and most of it relates to the industry can not keep up with EPA and Gov. demands. Not proper time to test products. Later Paul
