Orientation Orientation describes the direction that air will flow through a piece of equipment. (e.g. air will flow horizontally through a "Horizontal" unit heater.) Most equipment will only function properly if installed in the proper orientation.
Gas Valve Stages Stages are unique speeds or levels that equipment can operate at. More stages allow for better fine-tuned control of output, which improves comfort and efficiency. Modulating equipment can operate across a range of levels, giving the highest level of fine-tuned control.

Features
    Goodman established itself as the largest HVAC manufacturer in the US by producing high-quality, efficient equipment and providing it to homeowners at a great value. The GMVM97 furnace utilizes a combination of dual steel heat exchangers, a modulating gas valve, and a variable speed blower motor to heat your home at an incredible 97% efficiency. Both the gas valve and motor scale their performance to your home's demand from moment-to-moment to ensure that you stay comfortable without over-heating your space. Even with some of the most advanced components available, installing the GMVM970804CN is easy. Goodman provides multiple options for orientation and gas, electrical, and venting connections. Maintenance is just as easy thanks to a self-diagnosing control board that records and displays error codes. If you're looking for exceptional comfort and peak efficiency, the GMVM97 is what you want.
  • Advanced Heat Exchanger Design
  • The GMVM97 furnace employs a reliable dual-diameter tubular heat exchanger design. Aluminized steel is used for incredibly efficient heat transfer, and a wrinkle-bend is applied to the tubes to enhance the heat exchanger's dependability and longevity.
  • Secondary Heat Exchanger
  • This furnace produces addition heat by directing combustion gases through a secondary heat exchanger before they are vented. The secondary heat exchanger is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and it is sloped to prevent condensate build-up.
  • Quiet Comfort
  • The blower of the GMVM970804CN was selected for its incredibly low sound levels. Additionally, this unit offers an airflow system and fan speed options that allow it to operate quietly while providing consistent comfort.
  • Venting Options
  • The GMVM970804CN offers several venting options to streamline installation in a variety of applications. It can be used in either a two-pipe direct vent setup or a single-pipe configuration with combustion air.
  • Secure Cabinet
  • All GMVM97 furnaces are protected by a durable steel cabinet rated for less than 2% air leakage. The heat exchanger section is insulated to prevent heat loss and the return side of the cabinet is solid and airtight.
  • ComfortNet Compatible
  • This furnace is compatible with Goodman's ComfortNet communicating controls. A ComfortNet control streamlines the installation and maintenance processes further by automatically detecting your equipment and providing diagnostics and troubleshooting.
  • Auto-Comfort
  • Goodman's Auto-Comfort mode is available in applications where the GMVM970804CN is used to distribute cooled air. This mode scales output up to the cooling demand in stages for improved comfort, efficiency, and dehumidification.
  • Easy Integration
  • The GMVM970804CN makes it simple to enhance your system with a humidifier and an electronic air cleaner; just wire them directly to the low-voltage terminals on the control board.
  • 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.

What will this furnace need to make it operate correctly at 8500 feet elevation and LP as the supply?
Ron 
from Colorado 
December 28, 2016
Answer
To convert the GMVM97 furnace to operate on propane, you will need the LPM-09 conversion kit. Goodman also recommends installing a LP low-pressure switch that prevent the furnace from firing if the propane pressure is too low, LPLP03. No other changes should need to be made to the furnace unless the propane provided by your supplier is artificially de-rated for high altitude operation.

I am in the process of installing a new Goodman heating & cooling system that is ComfortNet compatible. I am considering the CTK04 Thermostat, but I don't if I should spend almost $600 on this thermostat versus a non-ComfortNet thermostat at less than half the cost.
Martin 
from Massachusetts 
December 11, 2015
Answer
Using a Goodman ComfortNet compatible thermostat with ComfortNet compatible equipment offers several benefits that will not be available with any other thermostat. During installation, the ComfortNet compatible components will communicate with each other, and each will select the appropriate settings that will allow it to work best with the other components in the system. This means that set-up time should be significantly reduced, and there is no risk of making a programming mistake that could cause the system to operate less efficiently. Once the system is up and running, the ability of the thermostat to truly communicate with your furnace and air conditioner will allow you to take full advantage of the features in those components. This constant feedback will allow the furnace to better select the correct firing rate and blower speed than is possible without information from the thermostat. The air conditioner is also better able to select the correct stage with this feedback. Finally, should you ever have any issues with your equipment, the ComfortNet enabled thermostat will report any error conditions in clear English to help expedite the troubleshooting and repair process.

Is the fan compartment insulated? Quiet operation is key, as we've spent the past 25 years adjusting the TV volume.
Nicholas 
from New York 
September 17, 2015
Answer
The blower compartment on the Goodman GCVM97 and the Goodman GMVM97 is insulated to reduce noise. Please refer to the first page of spec sheet. It is under the "Cabinet Features" section. Also, since the furnace has a variable speed motor, it will be one of the quietest units available as long as it's sized properly.
