    Bryant vs Goodman

    Hello all,

    I have gotten two quotes for a furnace/AC:

    • Bryant 80% two stage downflow furnace,M# 312JAV042090
    • Bryant 3.5 ton coil, M# CNPVT042
    • Bryant 14 seer condenser, M# 114ANA042


    • Goodman 70,000 btuh 93% furnace model #GCV90704CX
    • Goodman evaporator coil model # CAPF3642C6
    • Goodman 14 seer condensing unit model #GSC140421


    With the price being very close, which of these would be a better setup?

    Thanks so much for your help

    You'll have a lower heating bill with the Goodman 90 over the Bryant 80.

    Check the contracts carefully to be sure both contractors are doing the same thing. Research the contractors carefully. Doing the job right is most important aspect of this.

    The Bryant installer is Heritage Heat & Air: http://www.heritageheatandair.com/

    The Goodman installer is Comfort-Air HVAC: http://comfort-airhvac.com/

    Any tips on how good either of these are would be great

    I have seen their trucks around town & at the supply house`s but i`m not
    familear with their work.
    I`ve been a bryant(day & night) dealers for about 30 years & i`m also a goodman dealer. Both of them are good equiptment. I prefer bryant only because of the lenght of time i`ve been with them. Good Luck,bigbird

    X2. The 90% furnace is going to be more efficient at heating the home. The equipment is only as good as the install and the duct/register/return sizing.

    They're both pieces of crap.....if they're not installed properly. On the other hand, neither of them pay me a penny to endorse their equipment so I can't tell you which one I would recommend.

    Hey, you can't help it if they don't pay me enough!

    If this is your standard reply to everyone, it is pretty useless.

    If you are trying to state that installation is the key to a good system, no matter what the brand is, then the product is not crap....the installed system is.

    If you are an HVAC professional, please regester as one.

    The Bryant 2 stage furnace will use less gas and cycle less often when operating on low fire.

    You have to compare apples to apples. Why did you get a quote for an 80% and one for 93% eff. units? Bryant will be more money if you installed a variable speed 355 but I would talk to the dealer about possibly quoting this option because it would definately be worth it.
