Heating and Efficiency
Both Trane and Goodman claim to be energy efficient appliances, providing heating all year, while claiming to lower your monthly energy bill.
Trane heat pumps boast ComfortLink II Communicating Capability ComfortLink II communicating technology, which they claim connects all of your components so your system automatically charges, configures and calibrates for optimal performance and efficiency. There is an additional feature that allows you to adjust temperature setting from your phone. Goodman heat pumps don’t have this feature.
Trane heat pumps have multi-stage fan motors, which allow you to adjust speed quietly. Goodman has what the company refers to as louvered sound control tops, which dampen operation noise.
Trane claims all components of their heat pumps are tested repeatedly to ensure long-lasting performance and durability. Goodman doesn’t make the same claim; however, they offer a lifetime limited warranty.
Trane heat pumps can cost from $2,700 to $3,300, while Goodman heat pumps will run you $1400 to $3,200. These prices do not include the cost of installation.
