This review of the Goodman GMVM96 96% modulating gas furnace gives you details to make an informed decision about this model. This is Goodman’s top gas furnace featuring a modulating gas valve that produces outstanding temperature balance in your home. The gas valve runs at variable capacity to create exactly the right amount of heat to maintain optimal indoor comfort.
A variable-speed blower enhances comfort as well by eliminating cold blasts at the beginning and end of the cycle. It also runs very quietly because it operates on low capacity most of the time. Goodman’s ComfortNet Communication is available as an option (about $450) that synchronizes performance between system components to optimize comfort and efficiency.
