goodman gas furnace

I have the pleasure of instaling a new furnace in my Daughter's house. I'm looking for a 93+ efficiency gas furnace and was wondering what the thoughts were on the Goodman name. They seem to be associated with Amana (if my research is correct). Is it an OK product? If not does anyone have a reccomendation?

I figure on an install with duct board (for easy install of AC later).

Around here we say to put in a Goodman for job security. I've never been impressed with their level of quality. Ruud/Rheem/Weather King are probably my favorites for build quality and value. I am especially fond of their evap coils. Nice and compact, fit the furnaces perfectly and never had a water leak with one. They even make it possible to inspect the coil and drain after installation. Goodman bought the Amana Brand a few years back. Not sure what that means except it is now hard to get Amana parts.
