Good: Bryant offers consumers an impressive lineup of propane and gas furnace models. With 87.5% of their natural gas furnace models being ENERGY STAR certified, Canadians can be confident that they will enjoy a high level of energy efficiency, resulting in more money in their pocket, in the form of monthly energy savings. Their limited lifetime heat exchanger warranty gives consumers.

Want: Price and efficiency make Bryant a strong competitor in their mid-range priced brand tier.  One area they fall short when stacked up against their direct competitors is warranty coverage.  Although they offer consumers a limited 10 year parts and limited lifetime heat exchanger, like their high-efficiency central air conditioner warranty plan, they offer consumers no distinction between model tiers. Whether you are purchasing an entry level efficiency natural gas furnace or an ENERGY STAR premium efficiency high-efficiency natural gas furnace you will receive the same warranty.  Other brands like Amana, don’t distinguish between model tiers either but they offer consumers a limited lifetime unit replacement. Difficult to say if Bryant would consider offering distinction between the models, since many consumers are satisfied with a limited lifetime heat exchanger protection.

The Bottom Line: Bryant is an affordable solution for consumers looking for a propane or gas furnace in the mid-range priced brand tier.  What they lack in warranty coverage compared to other mid-range priced brands, they make up for in fair and reasonable pricing, with a wide range of ENERGY STAR certified natural gas furnace models.
