INDIANAPOLIS, July 22, 2013 – Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems announces the release of the Preferred 92S (922SA) condensing gas furnace, which features a four-way multipoise design for upflow, downflow or horizontal installation, making this part of the latest generation of gas furnaces that are easier to install than previous ones. In addition, the Preferred 92S is an ideal height with a 35-inch cabinet, which is short enough for taller coils, but still allows enough room for installation and service. Bryant, a leading supplier of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The Preferred 92S features FanOnPlus™ technology, allowing for continuous fan speed when used with a compatible thermostat. This ensures that homeowners are in control of how much air flows through the house when the system is operating in ‘constant fan’ mode. The gas furnace also features a Bryant unique silicon nitride Perfect Light™ Hot Surface Igniter that is not only physically robust but also electrically robust. It is capable of running at line voltage without requiring complex voltage regulators. This unique feature continues the Bryant tradition of providing reliable and durable products.
With an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) of 92.1%, the Preferred 92S provides added savings over standard gas furnaces. All units meet California Air Quality Management District emission requirements, are design certified in Canada, and are certified for mobile/manufactured home use. In addition, these units meet ENERGY STAR® regional standards in southern states.
"The Preferred 92S gas furnace provides a number of installation configurations and allows for considerable flexibility for the contractor and homeowner," said Bill Stewart, product marketing manager, Bryant. "The Preferred 92S achieves a very efficient 92.1% AFUE and when all of the features and benefits are factored in, this furnace makes a welcome addition to Bryant’s mid-tier offerings."
At the heart of the electrical efficiency of the Preferred 92S is an electronically commutated motor (ECM) blower motor, which provides adjustable blower speeds for cooling, heating, continuous fan and dehumidification modes of operation.
