bryant evolution Bryant Evolution Series 17 SEER Heat PumpIn 2000, Bryant Heating and Cooling expanded its product line by adding a packaged heat pump intended to provide both heating and cooling in the same unit. Of course, Bryant did not end their heat pump offering then and have continued to build the line to the present day. Currently, Bryant’s premier air-source heat pump is the Evolution Series and the 17 SEER 286B model is the median in it.

The Bryant Evolution Series 17 SEER heat pump is equipped with a two-stage scroll compressor to earn its 17 SEER rating. A SEER is the industry standard by which the energy efficiency of heat pumps and air conditioners are rated. Higher SEER is better than lower and 17 SEER is higher than the Federally mandated 13 SEER minimum and among the highest for air-source heat pumps. It is true heat pumps more efficient than 17 SEER can be found, but for most consumers a 17 SEER rating is more than sufficient, especially since unit cost increases alongside.

To complement the heat pump’s solid SEER, Bryant constructed the unit of high-grade steel and installed DuraGuard Plus to protect it against inclement weather. They also put a DuraFlow Guard design around the exterior coil, powder-coated paint on the cabinet and added on top of that a 10-Year Limited Warranty on parts. The latter is no surprise as Bryant is confident enough in the quality of all their products to put a 10-Year Limited Warranty on just about everything.

Still, the best selling point of the Evolution 286B heat pump is that 17 SEER rating. If you’re upgrading from a conventional air conditioner and furnace and live in an area with high energy costs, then a 17 SEER rating is going to save you money. At this point, all the other components are just really nice additions to the energy-saver you just bought.
