Consumer Reviews of the Bryant 340AAV
Date created: 2012-12-29
We live in a D.R. Horton home built in 2011. This furnace was brand new and has been nothing but problems. First it didn't run at all, but luckily was under warranty. Now, a year later it has quit working in the middle of winter and we have spent $1500 trying to repair it. It worked for one day and today has quit again. I would not recommend this furnace to anyone and I hope D.R. Horton chooses another vendor from which to purchase these units.
Other 340AAV Reviews
The Bryant 340AAV is subject to mixed reviews from forums across the web. While most contractors recommend the unit and other Bryan heating products, consumer forums such as hvac-talk.com post several troubleshooting issues. Problems include instances where the furnace only blows cold air, failure to light and failure of interior components including the pressure switch or blower.
Despite the operational issues, many contractors on hvac-talk.com and gardenweb.com have a positive view of this unit and believe it will provide quality performance with proper care and installation. However, some of these professionals mention it may be worth spending a little more to upgrade to a model with variable-speed functionality for more long-term efficiency and cost-effective performance.
