    Just checking to see if the equipment installed is what I requested.

    Installed a Bryant 355MAV042060 and 355MAV060080 furnace. I just wanted to make sure these were variable speed units.

    Thanks

    Bigbird, is this a current model? The Bryant website shows a 355AAV.

    Thanks

    Bigbird, thanks very much. I'm in Bakersfield and am looking forward to see if the performance of the 90% VS furnace and a 556A 14 SEER AC unit will deliver the comfort and cost savings I hope for.

    Thanks again.

    Not to split hairs, but the V doesn't mean variable in this case. Most all Bryants are now AAV series, except for package units and such. Actually, the 355 tells you it's two-speed and variable speed, so Jason got what he wanted. Until recently the 90+ units were all MAV and the 80%AFUE models were all AAV. Only change I am aware of is the 355AAV is now listed for either single or two pipe configuration where the MAV's were all two-pipe only.
    Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
