Goodman – A Member of the Daikin Group
Weíve become one of the largest manufacturers of residential and light commercial air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality products and systems by focusing on just one thing – building the most reliable and refreshingly affordable indoor comfort products in the market.
The complete line of Goodman brand products are built on the principles of founder Harold Goodman, a former air conditioning contractor.
Harold’s goal was to manufacture air conditioning and heating equipment that:
- Provides industry leading product warranties
- Offers greater reliability and longer-lasting performance than competing products
- Is designed for quick, trouble-free installations
- Makes reliable cooling and heating as affordable as possible.
Building our products to Harold’s standards, and protecting those products with some of the best limited warranties in the industry, has helped to make the Goodman brand widely recognized as a leading brand in the residential and light commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry today.
For over three decades, the Goodman brand has concentrated on something more important than simple brand-recognition consumer advertising. We’ve focused on the design, engineering, and manufacture of dependable products that have helped millions and millions of homeowners achieve reliable, high-quality, and affordable indoor comfort. In addition, the Goodman brand has earned the loyalty and respect from thousands of local independent heating and cooling professionals across North America.
We believe that your local HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) professional knows best about your specific indoor comfort needs and indoor air quality solutions. When they recommend a Goodman brand product, rest assured that you and your family will soon be receiving great indoor comfort, at a refreshingly affordable price.
Independent HVAC contractors have access to a wide variety of heating and air conditioning brands. And they have to stand behind the brand that they recommend 100%, or suffer the consequences of unhappy customers.
Most homeowners have no idea of the brand name of their central heating and cooling system that is installed in their home. It’s a purchase many homeowners make just once or twice in their life – typically on a very hot or very cold day. On the other hand, your local HVAC dealer recommends and installs Goodman brand heating and cooling systems every day!

There’s a good reason why thousands of the nation’s HVAC professionals recommend the Goodman brand. Dealers are completely comfortable with Goodman brand products that will keep their customers satisfied and enhance their own reputation. Goodman brand manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001-certified, an independent standard accepted worldwide as the benchmark for quality manufacturing and management processes, and ISO 14001-certified, an international environmental certification.
The efficient movement of heat is a basic premise of the HVAC industry. Whether itís the removal of heat in conjunction with cooling products or the creation of heat for warmth, the HVAC world revolves around the thermodynamics of heat transfer. As your local HVAC dealer knows, the Goodman brand is recognized as a heat transfer expert. Investing in research and development is integral to the Goodman brand’s success.

History of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P.
“We will revolutionize the Heating and Air Conditioning Industry with the highest-quality equipment, manufactured by the best-producing workforce and sold at the best prices in the market.”
– Harold Goodman, 1982
In 1954, Harold V. Goodman, founder of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P., became an air conditioning contractor in the rapidly growing city of Houston,Texas. As the steamy Gulf Coast city grew, so did Haroldís business, and by the late 1960s, he was one of the most successful HVAC contractors in the United States.
In 1975, Harold entered HVAC manufacturing with the formation of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P. The company began as a maker of flexible air duct and plastic blade registers. As this business grew successfully, however, Harold turned his sights to building HVAC equipment, recognizing the industryís need for a high-quality, low-cost producer of central air conditioning systems. As luck would have it, Harold learned that another HVAC manufacturer was closing its doors and selling off its manufacturing equipment. He quickly stepped in to purchase the shuttering companyís machinery, transported it to a large warehouse in Houston, and in 1982, Goodman entered the market as a manufacturer of central air conditioners and heat pumps.
From the beginning, Harold was dedicated to building HVAC equipment that performed reliably, lasted a long time and solved many of the problems contractors encountered in the design of other companies’ equipment. The philosophies he used to guide his company were simple:
- High quality at low cost equals value
- Maintain low overhead
- Create products that are engineered for reliable long life, utilizing the best components with some of the lowest failures rates in the industry
- Our belief of offering some of the best limited warranties in the marketplace.
These same principles guide Goodman today. We remain focused on providing high-quality products at an affordable price, and protecting them with what we believe to be some of the best warranties in the industry*. This clear focus has led to Goodmanís being a leading unit manufacturer of residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning products and systems in North America.
Today Goodman is the value leader in HVAC products–all due to Harold Goodman’s vision.
In the words of the Goodman brand’s tagline, “Thank Goodness for Goodman.”
