System Types

HYBRID HEAT® Dual Fuel Systems

A HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system combines the strengths of a gas furnace with an electric heat pump to deliver the comfort and efficiency you need year-round to give you more control over your utility bills.

The system automatically selects the most economical fuel source – gas or electric – based on data through the control to heat the home with maximum efficiency.

Split Systems

A split system is a heat pump heating and cooling system or an air conditioner that has components in two locations. Usually, one part of the system is located inside (an evaporator coil attached to a furnace or a fan coil) and the other is outside your home (heat pump or air conditioner unit, also referred to as the condenser coil).

This is the traditional system that many of us have in our homes.

Geothermal Systems

Geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the Earth’s surface to use thermal energy found underground, or in a pond or well water. It serves as a heat source in winter and a heat sink in summer – instead of using outside air like traditional heat pumps.

Geothermal heat pumps are able to operate efficiently on the coldest winter nights or the hottest summer days, to save energy and money.

Packaged Systems

If space inside your home is limited, Bryant offers several packaged solutions, which can be placed on your rooftop or in your yard.

A packaged system can be exclusively for cooling or can combine components to provide electric only or gas and electric heating and cooling. Everything is in one unit except the control.

Ductless Systems

Ductless heating and cooling systems provide personalized comfort control throughout your home, offering flexibility and efficiency.

Ideal for spaces without existing HVAC ducts, they operate quietly and effectively in various settings, whether it’s a room addition, garage, or you’re looking to remedy hot and cold spots within your home.

Evolution® System

The Evolution System is an advanced communicating system, capable of delivering high-efficiency performance and total home comfort in both warm and cold conditions.

With an Evolution System, you have more control of temperature, humidity, indoor air quality, fan speed and ventilation in your home. It can even detect when your air filter needs to be replaced and when service is needed.
