"Newly installed"

3.0 rating

I just had the new Bryant Plus 95I Preferred Series furnace installed. I pray we don’t have many issues and can save on heating and electrical. This is a 2 stage furnace with a dc motor and 60,000 btu.

"12 Years running without a hitch"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I guess the best furnace is the one you just don’t even notice. I’ve had this quiet furnace in my house for almost 13 years now. I have to admit I don’t do the scheduled maintenance every year, but it doesn’t seem to have mattered so far. I don’t know what else I could ask for in a furnace.

"BEST FURNACE I EVER HAD"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Had a goodman before which I hated–switched to a bryant variable speed unit. This thing is so cool. I never thought I would be so excited over a furnace but after that goodman experience its nice to have a warm home when you come from work. It’s so quiet that I rarely know its on.

"Fragile high efficiency furnaces"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We have a Bryant Plus 90I (355 mav). It cost about $5000 for furnace and installation seven years ago. Installation was botched and furnace was almost ruined due to a number of issues. It generally needs service every year and this year we had a new inducer board installed. The furnace ran a few hours and this item failed. If you want to know what is going to happen to companies such as this look at the appliance market. Five years ago there very few “foreign” brands and now they are dominant.

"Plus 95 Evolution Furnace"

Very Unsatisfied

Installer advised Bryant furnace Evolution Plus 90i can’t be made to work on “comfort” settings, consequently blows only slightly warm air, which causes wind chill in house.

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.
