"Furnace in Attic"
I moved into my house about ten years ago and was very unhappy with my Lennox furnace that was installed in my attic above my bedroom. It was very noisy and it seemed like I was always having to replace parts. Then one year our heating company found a crack in the furnace and recommended a Bryant furnace to us. We have been very happy it is quiet and dependable. I also actually noticed a savings on my gas bill.

"I Am Very Disappointed"
My furnace is only 6 years old, and the ECM Module went out. I was told this part cost $1,000 to replace. I am very disappointed that my repair bill was over $1,200 in a relatively new furnace. I feel this furnace was defective or sub-standard to start with. No one from Bryant has contacted me after I emailed them all of the information. I don't feel this furnace is safe. I would never recommend a Bryant furnace to anyone.
Word of Mouth
Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are rather critical regarding certain parts of Bryant Furnaces:
- Bryant has had absolutely no problems whatsoever over the past 20 years, according to a guest at the HVAC-Talk forums, but the compressor keeps failing. Poorly installed or designed wiring affects part-performance.
- With other Bryant units, a couple of others at the HVAC-Talk forums insist that the problem involves the pilot, not the compressor. As a result, the flame either won't go on or immediately goes out after ignition
- Bryant's five-wire valves are confounding and troublesome, according to one service tech at the HVAC-Talk forums. Pilot activation, which is essential for the heater or boiler to work, is hindered, and therefore no flame can be lit. Bryant's wiring makes maintenance and repair all the more difficult in the process.
