Frigidaire vs goodman central air

I am about to purchase a central air conditioning unit ,I looked around this new sud-division and saw a lot of Goodman and Keeprite. An installer is suggesting a Frigidaire 3 ton model F54be36K , does anyone have any experience with Frigidaire central air.thanks

Frigidaire

If I remember correctly, Frigidaire is made by Nordyne. I've worked on a few & don't see much difference in them & other equipment in the same price range.

They are both about the same. I consider both a low end unit.

I have installed and serviced both units they are very comparable. I give a slight edge to frigidare.

Around here I see more Goodmans. 10 yr warantee. So just go by the price and warantee.
Anyone see any Janitrols lately, new?

Janitrol

I think Goodman has dropped the Janitrol name & now labels everything as Goodman.

Thanks everyone, excellent feedback.. I can go back to the company and try to get a better price, since they position the Frigidaire $500 more the the Goodman because they claim its better.
