TOP NOTCH IS A PROUD VENDOR OF GOODMAN® HEATING & COOLING PRODUCTS
Wondering if it’s time to replace your home’s air conditioner or furnace? Turn to the Pittsburgh HVAC pros at Top Notch Heating & Cooling. If repairs alone aren’t enough, and a replacement unit is necessary, we are proud to recommend Goodman® products to Pittsburgh-area homeowners.
The Goodman brand has been synonymous with affordable, reliable, and high-quality heating and cooling equipment since 1982. For over three decades, Goodman ACs and furnaces have kept many homes throughout the U.S. comfortable year-round.
Here are a few reasons we like Goodman HVAC products and why we feel you will, too.
Goodman Products Are Made in the USA
Goodman air conditioners and gas furnaces are made right here in the good ‘ole U.S.A. Unlike Carrier, Goodman is choosing to keep jobs here at home rather than outsource them internationally. The parent company of Goodman, Daikin Industries, Ltd. is in the process of completing a new manufacturing facility in Texas. This 4 million square foot industrial plant, located in Waller County – just about 40 miles outside of Houston, TX – will provide a projected 5,000 jobs by the end of 2018. Practically all Goodman HVAC products will pass through this facility.
This means when you invest in a Goodman air conditioning unit, or a Goodman gas furnace, you’re investing in America. We at Top Notch Heating & Cooling believe that a company that harnesses the innovation and productivity of American workers is one worthy of our recommendation.
We also love that Goodman is all about their customers. They manufacture efficient and reliable products. Through the years, Goodman has invested well over $100 million in advanced manufacturing equipment and assembly line technologies. Their commitment to producing quality products is unparalleled. It makes our commitment to Goodman a no-brainer for us.
Goodman Products Are Affordable
The pros at Top Notch Heating & Cooling understand Pittsburgh-area homeowners want just the right balance of optimal temperature control, improved indoor air quality, dependable and reliable operation, and maximum energy savings.
Many would assume that getting all of these things would require a significant investment. When we recommend a Goodman AC or Goodman furnace, you can rest easy knowing that you’re getting all of the above at an unbelievably affordable price.
And just wait until you start seeing lower utility bills once these energy efficient units are installed + up and running.
Goodman Products Are Environmentally Friendly
Many of the policies and manufacturing processes implemented by Goodman are centered on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. All Goodman air conditioning units or heat pumps contain a chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant rather than ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).
The manufacturing standards at Goodman have earned them the recognition of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Goodman’s office is also on track to achieve LEED Gold Certification for a space that promotes reduced energy consumption.
Goodman as a whole is consistently compliant with all relevant environmental standards and health/safety regulatory requirements. Every employee, contractor, and vendor associated with the company must support its safety, health, and environmental initiatives.
All Goodman products list the unit’s Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER), and Heating Season Performance Factor (HSPF) for complete transparency.
