We have a Goodman heatpump Model: SSZ140601 Model Desc.: 14 SEER HP, 5 TON Mfg Date: 6/3/2010

First of all, we did not register the unit so that cut our warranty in half. Two weeks ago, our compressor motor went out and we had it replaced. Now, our air handler motor (not sure if I am saying that right) went out.

I thought heat pumps were suppose to last 12 to 15 years. I am very disappointed in this system.

Is this normal?
