"Almost lives up to the promises"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

New house and the top-of-the-line Bryant Evolution Plus 90I 60,000 btu furnace with matching HRV and Bryant Evolution Puron 2 speed 2 ton outdoor unit. If installed and maintained properly, unit works great. Most technicians are baffled by it. Very important at the start of heating season to “prime” the condensate drain trap and ensure condensate drain is free, otherwise you will have a horror show of problems. I have learned to do routine servicing myself, at least I don’t fubar it working on it!

"Bryant Furnace and Air Conditioner"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

For 19 years now my Bryant Air Conditioner keeps on running. It is one of the first scroll compressor units available and just won’t stop. I’d really like to have one of the new Puron High Efficiency unit installed so please old unit fail this year. My newer Bryant 90I furnace with the variable speed and Evolution technology is the best furnace that I have ever owned and I’ve relocated many times in the past so I’ve seen Lenox, Trane and others in my own home but none heat as quietly and provide the comfort the new Bryant does. I get both my units maintained every year so I’m sure that has contributed to the lack of failures and smooth quiet running. This manufacturer makes a fine furnace and air conditioner but make sure you are buying from an industry professional. I think that makes a difference too.

"Great Furnace"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I purchased a Bryant 355a model high efficiency variable speed furnace about 8 years ago. I don’t think I could have made a better purchase. The heat has worked seamlessly for over 8 years now and I haven’t touched it other than some routine maintenance and changing filters. It’s also quiet and cut my heating bills by almost 50%.

"Great System"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

The Bryant 90I system is a great system we had a 80% Bryant system before and because I am a hvac contractor wanted the best for my house. Some of the problems that I read about are installation problems where the service tec fixed a part but did not find out why the part failed. Of course there are brands that we will not install because they cost us money in call backs. Bryant Carrier and Payne are great systems and I make money on these units.

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.
