"Heat exchanger warranty"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

Just want to tell everyone I am the second homeowner for this furnace. I love it, but the company will not stand by the forever warranty of the heat exchanger, because we don’t have a receipt from previous owners? Plus, they bought the furnace from the previous company that installed the furnace. They have all the information on file??? Well you tell me… Now we will have to buy a new furnace. Would you do business with them? We don’t know what to do. By the way we love the Bryant evolution plus 90I. They tell us oh it’s the cadillac of furnaces. Well what would you do? Thanks

After 24 years of service, our Bryant furnace finally died. What could be better?

"Blower Motor Goes After 12 Years"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Blower motor goes after 12 years, over $1000.00 to replace. Phoned them, they’re unwilling to assist in any reimbursement. Had a Lennox for 30 years prior, NEVER, any major repairs.

"Bryant Furnace After 2 Years"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Had the Bryant professionally installed 2 1/2 years ago. Already the major component has completely failed. Need the entire inducer assembly replaced. Thank God on warranty but a big service bill was on me. I cringe to think of all the other components that will start to fail. Bryant is a classic example of ‘Made in China’ planned obsolescence. Think it over before you buy a Bryant.

"Read it all through"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have worked on furnaces for 7 years. I started with Bryants and moved to a company that sold Lennox. They are both great brands for dependability. Read the negative reviews carefully, friends. Most of them revolve around poor installation. There are technical flukes that can happen outside the range of warranty, but Bryant has a 10 year warranty. That’s on a 5,000 dollar piece of equipment. How many of your 30,000 dollar cars even come close to that? (Settle down, Kia owners, I know.) The point is, read all the info in each review before making a decision. A lot is opinionated and a lot is poor installation. That is not related to Bryant, but to the dealer you chose. Consumer reports has a top 10 list, check it out. Goodman is not in top 5 on that one, just look. I have been in these machines and in 6 homes a day for 7 years

Other Evolution Plus 90i Reviews

Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are mixed regarding this Bryant Furnace:

  • One person at the HVAC-Talk forums claims to have had no problems with the Bryant unit or replacement of any parts in 20 years. But the compressor keeps going out for apparently no reason. Perhaps this problem is associated with poor or complicated wiring that sometimes interferes with the functioning of certain parts.
  • Two other people at the HVAC-Talk forums concur. In their particular cases, however, the wiring interferes with the pilot light’s performance, which, in turn, prevents the flame from igniting or causes the flame to extinguish right after starting.
  • One professional tech at the HVAC-Talk forums clarifies that Bryant’s five-wire valves tend to be aggravating because they interfere with pilot performance.
