Precise Comfort

The fully variable-speed compressor allows Evolution Extreme air conditioners and heat pumps to continuously make adjustments. These adjustments maintain a more consistent mix of temperature, humidity, air flow and air quality — enhancing your home comfort.

Ultra-Quiet Operation

Our exclusive AeroQuiet™ System II feature included in Evolution Extreme air conditioners and heat pumps provides ultra-quiet performance inside and out with sound levels as low as 51 decibels — the lowest in the variable-speed outdoor category.2


Enhanced Dehumidification

Evolution Extreme air conditioners and heat pumps also feature enhanced dehumidification. When indoor air is properly dehumidified, it feels cooler, which can allow you to increase your thermostat setting, save your monthly cooling costs and remain comfortable in your home.

ENERGY STAR® Certified

Evolution Extreme air conditioners and heat pumps are ENERGY STAR® certified and may be eligible for local high-efficiency utility rebates where available.


Evolution™ System Efficiency

The Evolution Extreme air conditioner pairs seamlessly with the Evolution Connex™ Control. This allows it to run at maximum efficiency and take advantage of Evolution system features such as the Bryant Connected Portal.



The Wi-Fi® enabled Evolution Connex system control, with occupancy sensing ability, knows when you're gone and automatically sets the system for maximum savings. When you're home, its intuitive interface puts comfort control at your fingertips through a user-friendly touch-screen design. Capable of managing a complete home comfort system including humidity, ventilation and zoning, it is also the brains behind Bryant's highest-efficiency Evolution products.

Home Diagnostics Ready

Evolution Systems can connect to our Bryant Connected Portal, enabling remote diagnostics by your dealer, resulting in more timely and productive service calls.

1 Depending on model combination. Based on AHRI EER efficiency ratings compared to competitive 5-ton variable-speed heat pumps, and SEER/EER on 3-, 4- and 5-ton variable-speed air conditioners, as of February 2020.

2 Depending on model combination. Based on laboratory testing of Bryant's Evolution™ 26 air conditioner and Evolution™ 24 heat pump models by Bryant engineers in Fall 2019 and AHRI sound level data for competitors’ variable-speed outdoor units, published as of December 2019.

3 Based on Bryant testing, all data was run with the systems cycling once they met the assumed home load. The assumed load at AHAM conditions (80/70, 80) is the capacity of the variable-speed running continuously in dehumidification mode. The difficult conditions load was determined by a Wrightsoft® load calculation for a home in Florida at 69 OD 72/63 ID. This condition was provided by a customer in Florida as "worst case".
