Overview of the Goodman DSZC Series Heat Pumps
Models: The models in this series are the Goodman DSZC18 (18 SEER/9.5 HSPF) and Goodman DSZC16 (16 SEER/9.5 HSPF).
Energy Efficiency: Both of these heat pumps are Energy Star qualified. They should reduce energy use for heating and air conditioning by up to 50% when replacing a heat pump that is 12-20 years old. Energy Star heat pumps might be eligible for utility credits in your state too.
Performance: The Goodman DSZC heat pumps are equipped with 2-stage compressors. They run on low capacity up to 80% of the time. When running on low, they produce longer cycles that more gently heat and cool a home without producing noticeable temperature fluctuations. In the summer, these longer cycles also do a better job removing excess humidity from the home.
Price: Goodman has made a concerted effort to produce affordable heat pumps with excellent quality and warranties. These units are very competitively priced when compared with top models like the Carrier Infinity, Maytag iQ or M1200, or the Trane XL20i.
Pros and Cons of the Goodman DSZC Series Heat Pumps
There’s a long list of things to like about these heat pumps. They are built with quality components like the Copeland UltraTech compressor. Goodman backs the compressor with a lifetime warranty, the best in the industry. All other parts are covered by a 10-year warranty. The two-stage operation will help keep your home comfortable in every season of the year. The competitive price of these models is also an attractive feature.
The most efficient model in this series offers 18 SEER cooling and 9.5 HSPF heating. Those numbers are high, but you can find SEER ratings up to 20 and HSPF ratings up to 13, so there are more efficient models on the market – at a significantly higher price. Some have had concerns about the quality of Goodman heat pumps. If those concerns were valid a decade ago, improvements to the quality of the components and construction should alleviate them. The outstanding warranty from Goodman shows the company’s commitment to improved performance and service.
Goodman is a growing brand due to the improved quality, the good performance and the excellent warranty. If you want very high efficiency and the indoor comfort a 2-stage model can deliver, the Goodman DSZC heat pump Series deserves consideration.
