With up to 19 SEER and 9.0 HSPF, all models of Bryant’s Evolution series meet Energy Star guidelines for efficiency. These two-stage heat pumps maximize home comfort and energy savings by consistently operating on a lower function and automatically transitioning to high heating stage when needed.
This series uses Puron refrigerant and advertises sound as quiet as a vacuum with the noise softening features of the AeroQuiet System II. The Evolution line is also equipped with an easy to read thermostat with the ability to program 7 days of temperature, humidity, and air quality.
All units have a powder-coat finish and are finished with Bryant’s DuraGuard Plus formula for extra durability and protection weather.
I can't believe the difference. I had the Bryant Evolution System installed in April of 2009. I watched my electric bill drop by almost $100 a month through the summer of 2009 compared to the summer of 2008. The air is more comfortable. It is extremely quiet and very easy to use. I set the programmable thermostat. I never have to touch it. I can tell you I did a lot of research before I purchase my system. I think I made the right decision. This site seems to be a venting station for unhappy people but I for one want to brag about how great my Evolution System is.
From consumer posts to HVAC reviews, Bryant's Evolution series is thought to be a quality product. Webhvac.com goes as far to say the Evolution series is one among one of the best heat pumps in the industry. Others on heatpumprating.com note the Evolution models are not only effective for cutting energy costs, but are also reasonably lower in price than other brand's top tier heat pumps.
Consumers on hvac-talk.com did report individual issues with their unit, but did complement the system's on board diagnostic system. Folks on justanswer.com say that tool contributes to more efficient operation. Consumers on this thread also recommend the Evolution series to others looking for increased humidity control.
