Amana Furnaces vs. Goodman Furnaces
Before installing a new Amana furnace it’s important to know that the company’s heaters and air conditioners division is owned by Goodman. If you’re familiar with the Goodman name and Goodman equipment, Amana products are very similar. In fact, all the Amana warranties are handled directly by Goodman facilities and the Goodman name shows on Amana warranty documents. You’ll want to do your research on costs for new HVAC units but Amana is usually up to $500 or more than a Goodman furnace unit which is almost identical.
What Amana Furnace is Best for Your Climate?
If you are trying to decide how energy efficient (AFUE rating) you want your new gas furnace to be, the first thing you’ll want to figure out is what is the most cost effective heating unit for your home’s size and climate. A new furnace needs to be able to handle the heating needs of your local climate based off of average temperatures during the colder months. We’ve separated each region of all 50 U.S. states below into a climate map to help give you an idea of which Amana model furnace you would need. Most of the best furnace brands will have a standard AFUE rating of 80%.
- Zone 1, 2, 3 – 80% AFUE
- Zone 4 – 90% to 93% AFUE
- Zone 5 – 93% to 95% + AFUE
If you were needing an Amana furnace installed in Texas (Zone 1 or 2) where the weather is generally warmer and the winters are less harsh for a 2,000 square foot home, you could replace your current furnace with the Amana AMS8 with an 80% AFUE rating which would price out to around $988 for the furnace alone and around $2,145 for total installation with labor.
Amana ComfortNet Control Smart Thermostat
Top of the line Amana furnaces are designed to work with their proprietary ComfortNet Control system. These full-color thermostats provide a great deal of control over your new Amana furnace and central AC unit. They can control multiple devices around your home. The controls access the internet so they can function with wireless accessories and offer control over things like fan speed, heat pump balance point, heat and cool cycles, and even humidity with the higher end replacement furnace models.
The backlit screen is simple to read and the various controls are split into multiple menus to keep everything organized and make it simpler to use.
Amana Furnace Warranties
Most Amana furnaces come with a parts warranty for up to 10 years after the installation, but only when customers register their equipment within 60 days of installation. Amana equipment should be registered as soon as possible. If equipment isn’t registered in time, Amana will only warranty it for five years after the installation is complete. Amana is known for standing behind its products, but only if you take the time and put in the effort to make sure the heater, air conditioners or whatever you purchase from Amana is registered properly.
Amana products are built to last and don’t typically have many problems, but if they do you could find yourself footing the bill for a technician even if the equipment is covered under warranty. The warranty doesn’t typically cover labor or shipping.
Amana Furnace Installers Near You
Before hiring a furnace installer to put in your new Amana HVAC unit make sure that they have experience with Amana or Goodman brand products. Goodman recommends that homeowners and business owners look for furnace technicians with the NATE Certification. NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence and shows that the technician has had proper training. Amana and Goodman don’t have their own training or certification program like some other suppliers do, so it’s a good idea to look for technicians that are highly rated with good reviews and that have advanced certifications.
