With installation that follows your state and local codes and with online registration, all Goodman furnaces come with a 10-year parts and lifetime heat exchanger warranty through the manufacturer.
Durable Hot Surface Igniter
Instead of a standing pilot light, the GCES961005CN has a newer, more efficient hot surface igniter. Hot surface igniters are much more efficient and safer than standard standing pilot lights.
Self-Diagnostic Control Board
The Goodman brand has improved technology from years of production experience, allowing for a long-lasting product that rarely runs into any operation-based problems. However, if the furnace does need maintenance or warranty work, the control board has a set of sensors that will identify any basic problems in the furnace’s basic operation.
Heavy Gauge Steel Cabinet
The GCES961005CN Goodman gas furnace has a durable outer cabinet. The heavy-gauge steel used in the furnace’s design allows for a more protected interior, and less air leakage from the furnace’s operation, resulting in a more quiet operation while still decreasing operation costs.
Ease of Installation
From enhanced operation to efficiency, the Goodman gas furnaces have a lot to offer. However, Goodman’s features don’t stop at quality of unit. The GCES961005CN allows for a significantly more streamlined installation process with its universal design, consisting of its ability to be installed in either downflow or horizontal configurations, lowering labor costs.
