    Carrier or Bryant

    Considering installing a Carrier Infinity or Bryant Evolution in my South Florida home. Looking at the 19 SEER Dual Stage units. Which one would you choose? Thanks

    They're the same product, different brand label. Carrier = Bryant in terms of functionality and performance specs, just look a bit different and have a different name. I would choose the company I thought was going to do the best job.

    What he said, there one in the same, and I also believe price is not much differnt either between the 2. The only real difference between Bryant and Carrier is if your a Carrier dealer you have to pay a franchise fee to have the dealership, whereas if your a Bryant Dealer there is no franchise fees which is where the small price difference comes into play though not much.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I had no franchise fee with Carrier when I sold that line. The only difference between the two brands is the color of the paint and the outside units look different. Other than that Carrier high end ac's achieve slightly higher seer ratings.

    We've sold Carrier for 3 decades,no franchise,I wish there was,it would keep out the rif-raf.

    Sure there are fees for CFAD,includes training,marketing,etc., well worth the dollars!

    Carrier 19 SEER ,likely quieter,CFAD likely a better contractor.Good Bcontractor can't go wrong with either.

    CFAD or BFAD ,factory backed Satisfaction or your money back,safe way to choose the contractor,otherwise be cautious,good luck any way you go!

    Bryant furnace model numbers start with three numbers and three letters (e.g., 315AAV), so they're a bit off with that model number. The 036045 denotes a 3 ton furnace with 45k btu input capacity.

    They are pretty much the same.....I'd also go with who you thought would do the better job.

    Why would you ask that. in a thread asking about the choice between a Carrier and a Bryant unit.

    Start your own thread.

    And tell us what size your contractor is recomending.
