Reviews by Heat Pump Series

Evolution Preferred Evolution Extreme

Bryant makes three different classes of heat pumps: Legacy, Preferred, and Evolution.

Legacy

The Legacy heat pump has a SEER of 16 and an HSPF of 9.0. These numbers represent relatively high efficiency, even though this is the weakest of Bryant's models. At 76 decibels, the Legacy is relatively loud.

This model, along with the other heat pumps listed here, uses Puron refrigerant instead of Freon. This substance does not emit ozone-destroying chlorofluorocarbons, and thereby brings the air conditioners into compliance with federal regulations.

Preferred

The Preferred Series heat pumps have SEERs of 16.5 and HSPFs of 9.5. It improves on the Legacy by adding, for one thing, a two-stage scroll compressor. All of these products have scroll compressors, which means they use a circular motion. The two-stage compressor is additionally helpful, because it prevents the heat pump from having to operate at full speed when the weather is not particularly extreme.

The Preferred, as well as the Evolution, is equipped by the DuraGuard® Plus Protection Package. This is a series of coatings and other interventions that decrease susceptibility to the elements.

Preferred Compact

The Preferred Compact is a particularly small model of heat pump, designed to fit into a space on a roof or a deck. As such, it's not quite as efficient as the other pumps. It has a maximum SEER of 15.5 and a maximum HSPF of 9.0. However, it is the quietest of all these units, producing only 66 decibels of noise.

The Preferred and Preferred Compact both use Duraflow design, which is partly responsible for decreasing the sound.

Evolution

This is Bryant's top-of-the-line heat pump. It has a SEER of up to 19 and an HSPF of 9.25.

The Evolution heat pump is set up to integrate with the Evolution Control system. This is a thermostat that also controls humidity and allows for multi-day programming. This system can also be accessed remotely using phone or computer.

This model features the AeroQuiet® System II, which decreases the noise that it actually emits. This brings its average operating noise to 72 decibels.

Warranty

All of the above products come with a ten-year limited warranty for their parts. This warranty is valid only for the original owner. Its span decreases to five years if the product is not registered within ninety days of purchase.

Installed in 1994 and worked great untill last week when the outside fan stopped working. $200 repair and good for another year or two.

"Bryant Heat Pump – Big Disappointment!"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We have had to add 3 pounds of freon to our 2-1/2 ton unit every year since we've owned it, due to a leak in the coil that they say they can't repair. The capacitor also went out after year 4 and had to be replaced. Repair costs to date are $700. After the warranty expired, the dealer who installed the unit won't even return our phone calls requesting service. Don't waste your money on a Bryant. I wouldn't put another one in, even if they were giving them away for free.
