Features

    A Goodman central air kit is the perfect way to upgrade your home's HVAC system. This kit contains a GSXN3N6010 air conditioner and an AMST60DU1400 air handler with a multi-speed blower motor. The multi-speed ECM motor provides you with energy efficient circulation. While each of these components enjoy the impressive durability and easy accessibility for which Goodman is famous, their energy efficiency is the real selling point. State-of-the-art design and technology make the GSXN3N6010 AMST60DU1400 an excellent addition to nearly any household looking to reduce their energy spending.

  • Energy-Efficient Compressor
  • This unit utilizes an energy-efficient compressor to provide refrigerant flow.
  • Factory-Installed Filter Drier
  • A filter drier is installed in the liquid line of this air conditioner. The filter drier removes moisture and traps impurities, preventing corrosion, freezing, and blockages that can negatively impact the operation of the air conditioner.
  • Copper Tube/Enhanced Aluminum Fin Coil
  • The condenser coil of this air conditioner is designed with aluminum fins and copper tubing to maximize efficiency. The fins serve to increase surface area, allowing the heat transfer capabilities of the materials to shine.
  • Heavy-Gauge Galvanized-Steel Cabinet
  • This cabinet is built to last. Galvanized steel construction, a durable and attractive architectural gray powder-paint finish with 500-hour salt-spray approval, and a steel louver coil guard that protects your equipment from wear and tear.
  • Secure Cabinet
  • The removable grille-style top design is UL 60335-2-40 compliant.
  • Internal Thermostatic Expansion Valve
  • The AMST has a factory-installed internal thermostatic expansion valve. This streamlines installation and maintains ideal refrigerant flow for your system.
  • Efficient Circulation
  • The direct-drive, multi-speed blower motor allows air volume variation for heating and cooling ensuring efficient circulation.
  • All-Aluminum Coil
  • Goodman's evaporator coils use a reliable all-aluminum design featuring fins and grooved tubes. This design maximizes surface area and optimizes heat transfer for efficient comfort.
  • Smartframe&Amp;Trade;
  • This air handler features a rigid SmartFrame™ sub-structure for enhanced accessibility. It provides tool-less access to the filter rack and includes a coil mounting track that improves installation speed for all four compatible orientations.
  • Condensate Management
  • The AMST includes a DecaBDE-free thermoplastic drain pan with secondary drain connections, These elements help prevent the formation of condensation and keep your system running smoothly.
  • Extended Warranty
  • Goodman offers a 10-year limited parts warranty when you register your product online within 60 days of installation. An unregistered product has the standard 5-year warranty. See warranty sheet under the "Manuals" tab for more information.

    Product Note

    The recommended line set size for this system will vary based on the length of line set you require for installation. Compatible line sets can be found under the "Recommended Accessories" tab. | The US Department of Energy regulates minimum efficiency standards for central air conditioners and heat pumps based on geographic regions. We are required to abide by these regulations when selling products, and take this responsibility seriously. The standards depend on the rated efficiency of the entire system, not the nominal efficiencies of individual components. If you are unsure if your system will be compliant, please call or email us for help.

Is an air handler a furnace and air conditioner? ›

An air handler may seem like it is about the same thing as your furnace. It has the coils for an air conditioner, usually a filter, and a circulating fan. The one function that is different is that it does not have a way to generate heat. When you use a heat pump rather than a furnace, an air handler does warm the air.

How does a Goodman air handler work? ›

The refrigerant is pumped from the exterior compressor coil to the interior evaporator coil, where it absorbs the heat from the air. This cooled air is then pushed through connecting ducts to vents throughout the home, lowering the interior temperature.

Is Goodman a quality AC? ›

Goodman Air Conditioning & Heating ranks No. 3 in our Best HVAC Companies of 2023 rating. Since its founding in 1975, Goodman has carved a niche for itself producing high-quality air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces at affordable prices.

How can I tell what SEER rating my AC unit is? ›

On most units, there's a yellow sticker labeled “Energy Guide” that displays the SEER rating. The example to the right shows a label from a unit with a rating of 15.0. An A/C's SEER rating is also listed near the top of the unit's manufacturer label, where the model and serial number are listed.

What is the difference between HVAC and AC? ›

The difference? An HVAC unit heats, cools, and ventilates your home; and an AC unit only cools your home.

Is an air handler the same as a condenser? ›

The main components of a condensing unit include a condenser fan coil and a compressor. The condenser unit is part of a wider heating or cooling system. In contrast, an air handler is a standalone appliance.

What's the difference between HVAC and HVAC? ›

So, while “HVAC” refers to the entire system, “AC” just refers to your air conditioner. Part of the confusion is when “HVAC system” gets thrown around when someone is really referring to a heat pump or furnace, for example. It's often easier to just say HVAC system, but it's not always specific enough.

Does an air handler use a lot of electricity? ›

It could cost you hundreds of dollars a year. The average unit has a 500 watt fan, which uses almost as much energy over the course of the year as a refrigerator, resulting in a $50/month bill.

How long does an air handler unit last? ›

Generally, without maintenance, the average HVAC system will have a life expectancy of about 15 years. With routine maintenance, HVAC systems can last up to 10 additional years.

How long do air handler motors last? ›

More likely is a lifespan of 10 to 20 years which means by the time the AC motor fails it's often time to consider replacing the entire system. One reason they last so long is they are designed and manufactured to withstand extreme heat up to 140℉.

Which one is better Lennox or Goodman? ›

Can I use a 3.5 ton air handler with a 3 ton condenser? ›

There is some leeway, like a 3-ton condenser to a 3.5 air handler. The short answer is, you can't. A good tech might be able to get it to work with like a TXV, but you are going to be bottle-necked at the 3-ton. There is no way you will get 5-ton capacity after that.

Can you replace AC unit without replacing air handler? ›

The simple answer is No. When replacing the outside AC unit in your home, HVAC experts recommend that you also replace the indoor unit. While this is entirely your decision, failure to replace both can cause issues such as reduced efficiency, regular failures, and increased cooling costs.
