Bryant Evolution Plus 95s Furnace Reviews

Showing 6-10 of 12 reviews

"Only 6 Years over 4 K in service"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We actually have 2 of these units in our home and have had nothing but trouble with them. Had to replace both heat exchangers which cost us over 3k in labor as Bryant will only cover the defective parts but not the labor. The next year we are getting no heat and code 33’s which is a rollout failure so another $800 for service. Just not a good company to deal with. Local dealer said he see’s it all the time.

"Heats my home, but vibrating issues and blower fan fails."

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Installed in 2010, last year the Blower Fan went out and needed to be replaced. That’s 6 years and a full new blower fan. Very disappointed, and now concerned with how long the furnace will last. Other reviewers also had the blower fan go out at 6 years. In addition, after the first year, the furnace now has a vibration when running which wasn’t there the previous year. It was silent and an enjoyable furnace for the first installed year until the second winter year came along. I do not plan on purchasing a Bryant product again in the future.

"Five year warranty $1600 repair year 6"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Purchased and had installed a model 355cav Evolution Plus in 9/2008 Five years later blower goes out $1,600 bill. Bryant refused to even discuss. Buy anything but a Bryant for quality.

"Couldn’t be more disappointed"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We have had our Bryant furnace just over three years. The furnace has failed twice this month. The first visit cost us over $300 in labor. We are currently waiting for the repair people to come today to determine what is wrong with it now. I contacted Bryant and was told there was nothing they would do. I would stay away from anything Bryant. A furnace should last more than three years. If it doesn’t the company should do something about it.

"355CAV and heat pump"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have a 355cav lp gas 95% Eff. furnace, with Bryant 17 Seer heat pump, zoning, Evolution thermostat, it’s the hybrid system. Works great — saves me $600 or 30% a year on my heating costs. With a warmer than normal winter in Wisc. I Have a separate electic meter on the heat pump. So from Oct.1 to April 9, 2012 I used $408.20 of electric at $.15 a kilowatt. LP man figures I used 375 Gal. of LP with a water heater. So, I spent about $1150 this season. My old 87% boiler would use 800 Gal. per year in a normal year. “Bryant for what ever it takes”.

A Bryant Evolution furnace owner posts on about an error message he receives on his unit. A local contractor told him it may be caused by back pressure from high outdoor winds.
