Amana Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings - Amana offers several heat pumps in the Amana heat pump line-up. The top of line model Amana 21 SEER 10 HSPF AVZC20 Heat Pump is the most efficient. The economical Distinctions heat pump model gives you 13 SEER and 7.7 HSPF. Many heat pumps in the Amana product line use the new R-410-A refrigerant. High Performance HVAC does not recommend to consumers to purchase the R-22 heat pumps at this time. Lastly, many manufacturers of heat pumps do not produce units that utilize R-22. R-22 complete phase-out date is in 2020. (Currently Amana does not offer any R-22 units).
While Amana is manufactured by Goodman and systems are similar, Amana maintains its own distinct style. Some engineering is the same but Amana remains much of its own brand separate from the Goodman brand. Amana is a no frills type of system that remains somewhat simplistic (technically speaking) but keeps up with the competition in efficiency and quality. Many of the customers I have dealt with, the ones who own Amana systems, are typically happy with their systems.

Amana Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Heat Pumps - Warranty
Amana will replace the entire unit if the compressor ever fails on the premium models. That is one of the best warranties available in the HVAC industry. However, make sure you read and understand the warranty before basing your decision to purchase any HVAC equipment.
George Foerstner founded Amana in 1934 making beverage coolers. Amana started making walk-in coolers for grocery stores and restaurants and continued on making these units. After WW II when they came out with the innovative Radarange which was the first portable counter-top microwave oven. Finally, Goodman Manufacturing out of Houston, Texas owns the license to produce Amana HVAC equipment.
