Bryant At a Glance
Bryant has been taking care of homeowners’ indoor comfort needs for over 100 years. The company has been able to steadily earn the trust of customers thanks to their dedication to producing high-efficiency heating and cooling systems that are unmatched when it comes to quality, durability, and reliability.
This page is designed to troubleshoot any issues you might have should your own Bryant air conditioning system begin to defect. One way to delay this occurrence is to perform an array of basic maintenance tasks regularly. The most important of which is replacing your air conditioner’s air filters at a reasonable rate.
How to Replace Your Bryant Air Filter
Depending on your climate as well as the cleanliness of your home, you may have to replace your air filters frequently.
- Shut off your Bryant unit’s power
- Open the panel to gain access
- Locate your unit’s filter. Typically, these are found near or in the return air duct
- Remove the dirty air filter from its slot
- Clean the filter if it’s reusable, otherwise grab a new disposable air filter
- Replace the filter
- Close the access panel and turn the system’s power back on
What’s Wrong With Your Bryant Air Conditioner?
Remember to turn your a/c completely off before opening it up to look around or attempt any fix.
Is the outside unit blowing hotter air than normal?
You will want to examine your blower motor. If it isn’t operating properly, but the outside fan is still functional, the blower motor is defective. However, if this isn’t the case then check your control board or run capacitor for irregularities.
Alternatively, if the compressor appears functional but the outside fan is defective, your condenser fan might be flawed. Contrastingly, if the condenser fan is working properly, but the compressor is struggling, the unit may need more refrigerant or have a broken compressor.
Do you find that air isn’t circulating through the floor and ceiling registers?
Check to see if the outside fan is operating correctly. If it isn’t working as it should be, then it’s likely that your breaker is busted. However, if the breaker isn’t at fault, you will want to examine your thermostat or control board for issues.
Is your Bryant air conditioner not providing a sufficient amount of cooling comfort?
You will want to examine your system’s compressor and condenser fan. If both of these components appear to be operating as they should, but your home is still uncomfortable, then you’ll want to measure the temperature drop in your home.
Remember, your Bryant air conditioner should be operating for at least 10 to 15 minutes before you take any measurements. If the reading appears to be significantly higher than normal, certain internal components might be dirty or defection. Check the evaporator coil, air filter, or blower wheel for debris. However, if the reading is low, then your refrigerant charge might be defective.
