So over the last year-and-a-half I replaced my forced-hot-air furnace (in the basement), and central A/C (in the attic, with separate duct system), with 2 Bryant Evolution systems. Based on comments in the forum I decided I should at least get quotes on extended warranty. It turns out that Bryant overhauled their extended warranty program last spring, that it costs the dealer money to offer extended warranties, my dealer doesn't offer them, and
the local distributor (who is owned by Bryant) tells me now that -no- dealers in my area offer extended warranties.
[yes, those who know me know my situation is a bit more complicated because a bad dealer installed my systems and then a good dealer fixed them, but the good dealer doesn't offer the extended warranty either].
On one hand, I'm told that if a dealer offered them, I could be looking at several hundred for each system, on the other hand, I'd like to think I could negotiate, but I'm not even getting a chance to do so.
I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the new program such that no dealers are signing on. Are there any Bryant dealers out there who can shed some light on what's going on?
