The Bryant Legacy Line is a split-system air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 16.5 SEER and a capacity of 1.5 — 5 tons. It is equipped with a copper tube / aluminum fin coil which increases efficiency while providing protection against rust and corrosion, and a factory installed filter drier provides protection for the scroll compressor. The unit features a galvanized steel cabinet with baked-on powder paint and wire coil guard for increased durability. The Legacy Line uses environmentally-friendly Puron refrigerant.
Installed March 2017, had to have coil unit replaced. Service company called in august, 2018 as the unit was a cooling house, added Freon. Called service company again July 2019 for the same problem. The discovered unit was leaking. Unit should have lasted longer than 2.5 years.

Reasonable cost for a 16.5 seer outdoor condensor. It is in the legacy series and works very good. Only complaint is that the unit is a little bit loud.
San Jose, CA
Bought a new house on February 2012 with 2 Bryant AC Legacy systems manufactured in March and April 2011, today 4/2017 both units have both evaporator units leaking and have to be replaced, cost of the replacement $5800. Checked with Bryant factory and Customer service will do nothing for me because the installer failed to register the warranty within 90 days and so the 5 years warranty is up and Bryan Customer Service Department would not help you in any way or form. Do not buy Bryant, buy some other brand.
Our unit is 3 years old and the coils already went out. Parts are under warranty but still cost $1000 for labor to replace. Called Bryant Customer Service and they were unwilling to help and just plain rude. Less than 24 hours after having the coils replaced the capacitor motor went out. Unbelievable. I am in the process of having the Bryant junk replaced with a quality unit from a reputable dealer. I will never purchase another product from this company.
Please do not buy a Bryant AC. I bought this central AC in July 2014 and tried to start it up for the first time this year. It does not cool, the compressor is no good. Good news is the compressor is warranted for 5 years, bad news is the customer is responsible for labor & all other costs. So much for that warranty. Haven't received the bill but it will be costly. Buyer beware. Called the company & spoke with a supervisor. I'm sorry but there is nothing they are willing to do.
A comparison between the Bryant Legacy Line and a similar Payne air conditioner on hvac-talk.com found most people preferring the Legacy Line, with one contributor mentioning the quiet operation and another stating that the Legacy Line has better coil protection. A noise issue was mentioned on gardenweb.com, which professionals on the site believed was due to the furnace and not the air conditioner.
