• Keeping the cool air inside is just as important as keeping the warm air outside. Caulking, weather stripping, and adding additional attic insulation will help keep cool air inside during the summer.
• Make sure the air is flowing properly through the vents. Inspect the ductwork for holes or separated joints, and hire a professional to repair them.
• Add insulation around air-conditioning ducts, when they are located in unconditioned spaces, such as attics, crawl spaces and garages; do the same for whole house fans where they open to the exterior or attic.
• Homeowners should check the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating of their air-conditioning unit. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is and the lower your utility bills will be. Upgrading to a higher SEER rating can save homeowners hundreds of dollars a year on their energy bills.
Consumers may want to consider an energy-efficient model, such as the Goodman GSX air conditioner. New models are Energy Star® qualified, use environmentally friendly refrigerant and have high-efficiency scroll compressors that enhance reliability and contribute to the extremely quiet operation of the units.
Dirt is the biggest enemy of your furnace. It can waste fuel and drastically lower efficiency. Dirt affects all three basic components of your furnace, so cleaning is the most important part of regular maintenance. The three parts of the furnace should be cleaned: the filter system, the blower, and the motor.
The furnace filter should be replaced or cleaned at the beginning of the heating season and about once a month during periods of continuous use. To check the filter, take it out and hold it up to the light. If it looks clogged, replace it with a new filter of the same type and size regardless of the length of time it has been used.
The benefits of HVAC Maintenance are long-term and significant
Regular service maintenance saves you money in the long run. Studies indicate that regular service can reduce energy bills as much as 30% and increase the longevity of your equipment. Service maintenance is the easiest way to protect your investment. Maintenance ensures your system is running as efficiently, effectively, and safely as possible.
Goodman air conditioners typically last from at least 15 to 20 years. The lifespan of a central cooling unit may be reduced if its capacity is not properly matched to the cooling load of the home.
Goodman was founded by HVAC dealer, Harold V. Goodman, in 1975 as a manufacturer of flexible air ducts and plastic blade registers. However, he turned his sights to fulfill a dream of manufacturing affordable HVAC equipment for households across the United States of America and beyond.
In 1982, the company acquired Janitrol and entered the HVAC market, expanding its product offering in 1986 to include gas heating products.
Harold V. Goodman died in 1996 and was succeeded by Frank H. Murray who became chairman and CEO in April 1996.
In 1997, Murray initiated and spearheaded the Goodman acquisition of Raytheon Appliances, the predecessor of Amana Corporation, a manufacturer of appliances and HVAC units. Four years later, in 2001, Goodman separated its appliances business from its HVAC business and would sell the appliances business to Maytag Corporation.
In 2004, Goodman was acquired by Apollo Management, a private equity firm for approximately $1.43 billion. Just a year and a half later, in April 2006, Goodman completed an initial public offering, listing on the New York Stock Exchange.
In October 2007, Goodman agreed to be acquired by Hellman & Friedman a San Francisco-based private equity firm in a $1.8 billion transaction. In August 2012, Hellman & Friedman agreed to sell Goodman Global to Japan's Daikin Industries Ltd. for $3.7 billion.
In 2015, Daikin commenced construction of the state-of-the-art Daikin Texas Technology Park campus near Houston, Texas. This over $400 million project was the largest investment made in Daikin’s 90-year history. In October 2016, operations at the new facility ramped up and the first Goodman air conditioner and gas furnace units came off the line.
In 2017, the construction of the huge facility concluded to consolidate Goodman’s HVAC manufacturing, engineering, logistics, and customer support under one, very large 4.1 million square foot roof.
In 2017, Goodman acquired real estate technology company Motili, to expand its HVAC market reach.
