    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

    My personal preference would be copper no matter what.

    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

    Aluminum is the latest. Thanks for the tip.

    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.
