"Never, never, NEVER buy."

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Just purchased a home 2 years ago with this 2011 Bryant Furnace. It died – requires nearly $3k of parts and labor to repair it. Got three separate techs to give me estimates and assessments. Have been using supplemental electric heat trying to hunt down a fair way to repair it. Bryant won’t honor the full warranty and doesn’t respond to email inquiries. No warranty is worth anything if the company doesn’t back it. Without any warranted value – consider your money disposable just like this furnace.

"Crap unit"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Installed 2010. Needed new exchangers 2016. Bryant would not cover (thank God for whole house warranty). The technician said Bryant switched from stainless steel to galvanized exchangers and they last about 5 or 6 years. Have had a problem with heat unit every other year since install. Learn from my error never buy Bryant.

"Get a Trane"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

New install 2/2010. In 2016 the heat exchanger went. Warranty covered part cost I paid labor. $1500 New installed along with heat exchanger since it all apart from an inducer motor/blower. Thing sounds like the high pitched jet engine. Replaced today. This furnace is a mess. Bryant design is garbage. Full disassembly to replace heat exchanger. Even the techs working for my HVAC company recommend Trane.

"Heat Exchanger"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

2009 furnace, 2018 heat exchanger replaced. As we just bought the home, the installer tried to charge us for the part, but convinced them that the new owners, even if not registered in 90 days, we get the full 20 year warranty. Labor $1400, they also threw in a new control board.

"Piece of Junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Moved into a house that had a this furnace installed in 2010 so it’s only 7 years old. In the last 6 months, it’s gone through 3 inducer motor assemblies and had pressure switches fail. I’ll make sure to replace it with anything other than a Bryant furnace.

Other Evolution Plus 95s Reviews

A homeowner asks for a comparison of the Bryant Evolution Plus 95S to a similar Trane furnace on gardenweb.com, as these are being proposed by an installer. The experts respond that while both models are good, the Bryant furnace is a great choice, especially with the Evolution programmable thermostat. The contractors stress that the customer should ask for a load calculation, so the proper size unit can be installed for the size of the home.

Another post on gardenweb.com reveals an owner asking if her Bryant Evolution furnace should be cycling on and off frequently within one hour. An expert answers that there should be a setting on the Evolution thermostat to regulate cycling per hour.

A Bryant Evolution furnace owner posts on hvac-talk.com 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. The online experts say that is doubtful, and suggest the consumer check for obstructions in the lines, as well as the possibility that the low pressure switch could be faulty.

Question and Answer

Question:

What does error code 42 mean?

Answer:

An error code 42 is an inducer motor fault. The inducer motor may need to be serviced, or it might need to be replaced. This type of job usually requires the skills of a
