Bryant heat pumps stand among the elite class of HVAC systems, joining top tier brands like Trane, Lennox, and Carrier. In many ways, Bryant is a Carrier under a different name. Since Carrier acquired the Bryant brand in 1999, systems from the two brands have been extremely similar in quality and price.

Bryant heat pump prices, like other HVAC brands, aren't listed by the manufacturer because costs can change significantly depending on a variety of factors, including location, sizing, and more. Bryant heat pump prices are a package deal that includes installation (in other words, the price you pay for the contractor). Contractors buy the systems wholesale and install them for a price agreed upon between the contractor and homeowner.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Generally, Bryant heat pump prices are slightly higher than most other brands for a couple reasons: the equipment is considered high quality and Bryant is typically more stringent about which contractors it allows to install its systems than other brands. Lower-end brands like Goodman usually have a wider range of contractors allowed to sell their products. Some industry experts say that the standards by which Bryant selects its contractors gives way to a higher likelihood of a quality installation.

WHAT CHARACTERISTICS MAKE BRYANT HEAT PUMP PRICES JUSTIFIABLE?

Some industry experts suggest Bryant is more reliable than most other options, and therefore is less prone to breaking down or losing efficiency over time. Other industry experts say there is little to Bryant that's markedly better than it’s competitors. The price difference may be more closely related to the quality of contractor as well as longer manufacturer warranties. Generally, Bryant heat pump heating and cooling systems feature five-year warranties for most parts and ten-year warranties for key parts. High-end models may have longer warranties. Service warranties, which range anywhere from a year to a lifetime, are offered by the contractor and are separate from manufacturer warranties.
