Efficiency and cost savings:
- At Goodman Company, L.P., we realize that purchasing a heating or air conditioning system is no small matter. However, if your existing system is old, in need of repair or simply inefficient, purchasing a new unit, one which can be as much as 60% more efficient than a system purchased just 10 years ago, can offer long-term benefits.
- Rather than continuing to pay for ongoing maintenance and costly monthly bills, invest in a new system today that will save you money for years to come.
Get the facts from an expert:
- There are many heating and air conditioning systems to choose from today. Your Amana® dealer can draw on a vast degree of heating and air conditioning knowledge and experience to help you decide on the system that best fits your specific needs. The size and age of your home, as well as the number of rooms, climate, local and regional utility costs, and utility incentive/rebate programs are all factors that will affect the functionality and, therefore, selection of your system. Amana dealers, utilizing the latest technology, consider all these factors while assisting you in choosing the best system for your home.
- Consumers seeking to replace an existing system often choose a new unit with equal or higher efficiency ratings compared to their previous system. Replacing a unit that is 10- to 15-years-old may reduce natural gas or electricity costs by 30 to 50%.
- Contact an Amana dealer to help determine initial cost, warranty protection, service options, maintenance options, operating cost and proper installation.

- Factors affecting the size of your new system include the climate in your region, humidity levels, the number of windows in your dwelling, total square footage of your home, the direction your home faces, the number of heat-producing appliances in your home, the type of insulation you have and the number of people that live in your residence.
- An Amana dealer can perform the proper calculations to determine the appropriate heating or cooling unit for your home and lifestyle.
It’s all about duct-work:
- Putting a new system in a home that has not had central air and heat before will require the installation of ductwork, insulation, refrigerant piping, electrical service, wiring, thermostat, condensate piping, flue piping, flue terminations, chimney liner, slabs, filter, driers, registers, grills, drain pans, and evaporator coil. Beyond equipment, the most important component installed with a new system, however, is the ductwork.
- Duct-work is composed of two parts, supply, and return. The supply duct is attached to the outflow of the new system, delivering air to each zone in a home. The amount of air reaching each zone is determined by the size of the supply duct-work connecting it to your system. Your dealer will help you determine the size of all the supply ductwork in your home.
- The second part of the duct-work, the return duct, attaches to the inlet of the new system and draws air out of the spaces to be heated or cooled. Attached to the return duct is the filter. The filter should be placed as near to the furnace or air handler as possible. Duct-work can be either fiberglass or metal and must be properly sized in order to evenly distribute the proper amount of air to each room.
Start with a detailed inspection:
- To install the most efficient HVAC system in your household, a detailed inspection should first be performed by your installation contractor.
- The inspection by your contractor should include, as a minimum, the inspection of your home’s duct-work, insulation, refrigerant piping, electrical service, wiring, thermostat, condensate piping, flue piping, flue terminations, chimney liner, slabs, filter, driers, registers, grills, drain pans, and evaporator coil.
Proper maintenance is key:
- Maintenance and service play a key role in the life-cycle of a heating or air conditioning system. If all recommended maintenance and service actions are taken, an air conditioner can last 12 to 15 years and a gas furnace 20 to 25 years.
