Is Goodman heat pumps good?

Time to replace the heat pump. currently have an Amana which is 27yrs old and it has died. I have had 3 bids. Company "A" wants to sell me a Trane 3 ton with 12 seer, clean ducts 10 year warranty for $7,400.
Company "B" wants to sell me a Goodman 3 ton 12 seer, replace return duct work 10 year warranty for $4,700
Company "C" took 3 days to get estimate, They faxed it to me at work. Just says 2.5 ton unit for $3,800 or 3 ton unit for $4,300, did not give brand or seer rating. I have already decided not to go with company "C".
Money is a factor here and company "A" is out of my budget range. My question is How good is a Goodman heat pump? I live in central Alabama.
Thanks for any advice

In reality Goodman has improoved and if installed properly and maintained should be fine. They tend to be a little noisier due to the cabinets not being as thick. They are a lower end unit but serve their purpose and are not a bad unit now as apposed to what they used to be.

You may want to consider a couple more quotes. Try a company that deals in Rheem/Ruud, American Standard.

Also make sure they do a load loss/gain calculation on the home to assure that they size it properly.

When you are looking at just the SEER here you also want to look at the heatpumps HSPF you are also buying it for that Like a Trane XL16i is a seer of 17.00 and a HSPF of 10.55 for heat. Ask around .Yes goodman do work. That is for both inside and outside units?
