Goodman,Carrier. or Train?

Is the price difference between a Train, Carrier, and a Goodman enough to justify buying a Goodman 2 Ton slit electric heat pump? Also, is it a good idea to buy the unit on the web and have a local contractor install it?

The price you pay is worth the quality of equipment.
Trane and Carrier are both top of the line units.
Goodman IMHO is not worth your time.
The new consumer reports in OCT did not even rate goodman
due to the many problems.
You must also remember the quailty of contractor you use. If not installed correctly you will not get what is expected from unit or premature failure.
Buying a unit off the web is risky most manufactuers will not warranty the equipment if purchesed off the web.

Like said I go for a Trane first. Be sure and get 3 bids for the job
Now the But But's on a unit. What every the guy sells that has been around there for a long long. Is a good one to go with .
