    Bryant preferred A/C - no more tin coils?

    Does Bryant still offer tin plated coils?

    I'm replacing my home system with a Bryant evolution 96% furnace and preferred condenser. I asked about tin plated coils but the hvac guy over the phone said that Bryant only offers aluminum. Anyone know if this is true?

    I know I've seen alot of older posts saying to get the tin coils (ATA model number).

    Thanks

    Aluminum is less likely to leak. I still think they offer the duracoat (tin coating). Not sure. Either one is better than just plain copper coils.

    Copper is more likely to be a victim of formicary corrosion.

    Why are you against aluminum?

    Like everyone else, carrier/bryant/payne has changed all their coil to aluminum. Instead of ATA....you are looking for ALA
    I wish I had a $1.00 for every response I deleted.....

    What does it matter I just said my personal preference would be alminum. Based on the fact that I have changed enough aluminum coils to have a preference. I don't really get into "how much time" to me that is like saying what neiborhood you from dog.
