This is Turtle.
First The name means nothing without a good installer. MayTag , Goodman , Amana
, Intertherm ,
Delta Therm , Miller, Trane, American Standard, and a host of other have the
same 10 year warrenty throwed in too. Then a host of
other have 5 years everything and 10 years compressor. The 10 year warrenty is a
common thing now days.
Now the Amana and Goodman on 12 seer or up have life time warrenty on the
Now all this said about here. Warrenty is needed only if you don't get a good
installer. If given a choice of getting a life time
warrenty on everything or get a good installer. i would take the good installer
. I shotgun the units and do not recommend any but
just listed them.
Now here is what i think here. Look the first thing you should be looking at is
the installer and next to the last thing would be
the brand. I would take , first a brand that was a pure piece of junk if i knew
it was installed by a good installer before i took
the best brand know to man installed by a Hack. The installer is the key to a
good running system. Warrentys are for people who
don't get a good installer or a bad installation. Hacks and bad installers
brought on the long warrenty game as it is today.

Thank you for your comments. He has done work for me in the past. He put in
my basement unit. He could have oversold me more than once because I had
some ideas. HE always talked me out of it. He is also concerned about my
"air flow" H stated that for this unit to be most effeciant, he need to add
a few more vents. I forget which are returns. HE took over 45 minutes in
the attick and looking at the lack of air movement. He also wants to up the
existign system by one ton. We are in the deep south, Atlanta, and we have
problems with the AC unti upstairs. I wanted to go with a 90 gas furnace
and he talked me out of it, I also was interested in the 13-14 seer unti
and he suggested that the return was not worht the extra money. He suggeted
tah the variable sppe fan was where to put the money. WHile all of this is
debatable, I was again impressed that he down sold me. We also atend chuch
together, HE has a great reputation and is not the cheapest guy around. HE
also is by no meansd the most expensive.
Based on what you said and the fact that no -one has any bad thing to say
baout Maytag, I am going to go wioth it. Thanks for taking time to reply.
Have a great wk end.
