Bryant Hybrid Heat

The Bryant HYRBID HEAT dual fuel System combines the strengths of two heating sources to deliver the warmth and efficiency needed to be comfortable during the heating season. This system also cools the home in the summer and can provide potential utility bill savings. The HYBRID SYSTEM dual fuel system is so efficient, the cost to heat with it is less than with any gas furnace alone —even a 100% AFUE furnace.
The HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system by Bryant combines the Plus 90i gas furnace with an Evolution® Series heat pump to provide superior comfort during both heat pump and furnace operation. A heat pump works as an air conditioner in hot weather, but can also reverse the process and heat the home when cold weather arrives. This powerful combination can deliver heated air temperatures that are warmer than most traditional heat pumps, so air from the vents feels warmer to the touch. Because a heat pump also provides cool, indoor comfort when it’s hot outside, a Bryant HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system becomes the total, year-round indoor comfort solution.
The HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system by Bryant is an excellent investment for long-term peace of mind, comfort, and protection against unpredictable fuel cost increase because it provides the flexibility to react to changing energy costs. The HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system delivers exceptional performance by automatically switching to the most economical heating source depending on outdoor conditions. Simply set the desired comfort level, and let the HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system by Bryant do the rest.
Your Bryant dealer has access to many tools to help provide your family with the comfort they need and expect. Bryant’s Hybrid Heat Operating Cost Calculator can help you save on heating costs by calculating the exact operating levels for the most cost and energy efficient use. The Operating Cost Calculator allows your Bryant dealer to enter information about fuel prices and geography, then determine how much you could save on your utility bills with a HYBRID HEAT dual system compared to a gas furnace and air conditioner system.

New BRYANT High Efficiency Gas Furnace Line

Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems, a leading supplier of HVAC equipment, introduces a new high-efficiency line of gas furnaces with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) of up to 97 percent.
One of the first units available in the new line is the Evolution® 987M fully modulating gas furnace with load matching performance. A modulating gas valve is capable of adjusting from 40 to 100 percent of capacity, enabling lower speeds over longer periods of time for optimum energy efficiency. The unit is managed by the Evolution® control, which helps homeowners optimize their comfort by improving zoning capabilities while lowering operating costs. In addition, the new Evolution 987M furnace is built with variable-speed ECM (electronically commutated motor) inducer and blower motors that aid in quieter operation and customized comfort.
The new high-efficiency gas furnace line includes four models of the Evolution 987M modulating furnace, with a fifth model due in the spring of 2012. The initial release focuses on the industry’s most widely used capacities and includes the two-stage Evolution 986T and Preferred™ series units, as well as single-stage Preferred series units. Outputs range from 40,000 to 120,000 Btuhs. At just 35 inches tall and some models as narrow as 14.2 inches wide, these new furnaces are designed to fit smaller spaces.
“This new platform of high-efficiency furnaces is a result of forward-thinking solutions that result in quality products that are easier to install and are more energy efficient,” said Bill Stewart, heating products marketing manager, Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems. “Size was a key factor in our design considerations for this unit to serve markets with a need for ENERGY STAR® qualified replacement options that can fit tight spaces.”
The entire gas furnace line offers four-way multi-poise units with a rotating elbow to allow the ultimate venting flexibility for faster installation in upflow, downflow or horizontal applications.
The units are easier and faster to install and service because of the easy access condensate trap, a front-facing igniter attachment, two-door access with quarter-turn knobs, and a longer, rail-mounted pull-out blower. The new cabinet will be among the strongest in the industry and offers a sleek design and hemmed edges to give it a rounded finish, providing homeowners with a visually pleasing unit .
