Overview of the Goodman GSZ Series Heat Pumps
Models: The 2 models in the series are the Goodman GSZ14 (15 SEER/9.0 HSPF) and Goodman GSZ13 (13 SEER/8.0 HSPF).
Energy Efficiency: The GSZ14 is an Energy Star rated heat pump and may qualify for utility rebates in your state. At 15 SEER, it’s a good choice in moderate and warm climates. In very warm regions, you may find a more efficient heat pump to be more cost-effective. The extra you spend on the unit will be paid back quickly through lower utility bills. The GSZ13 is a standard-efficiency model that is best suited to very moderate climates or for installation where a low-cost heat pump is more important than high efficiency. They are popular in vacation homes and other part-time use locations.
Performance: These are single-stage models that run at full capacity all the time they are on. With a single-stage heat pump, you may notice some temperature imbalance in your home. If precise climate control is important to you, see 2-stage heat pumps from Goodman and other brands.
Price: The GSZ heat pumps are very affordable. Goodman offers some of the most competitive prices in the industry.
Pros and Cons of the Goodman GSZ Series Heat Pumps
Price and quality stand out with these heat pumps. That translates to good value. The excellent warranty is a plus too. Expect 15+ years of service from these heat pumps.
The downside of the GSZ Series is the single-stage operation that doesn’t offer the indoor comfort that staged heating and cooling does.
If you’re in the market for an affordable, high-quality heat pump that provides basic heating and air conditioning, the Goodman GSZ Series models are worth a closer look.
