    Which to choose??

    Please bear with..as I'm kind of lost in the world of Hvac. I've done a little research and have had a couple of contractors come out for a quote. I understand that Bryant and Carrier are the same manufacturer, with Carrier having a slight edge in quality.

    My choice has been narrowed down to the Carrier boost 93 percent eff. single stage dc brushless vs

    Bryant preferred plus 95 percent variable dc brushless

    Both guys are offering 10 yrs parts AND labour
    Both furnaces are eligible for the Canadian rebate program and the Ont. power authority program with the Bryant fetching a slightly higher rebate return.

    Their quotes are within $200 of each other. Can anybody please offer an opinion or insight.

    Thank-you so much in advance for your time

    The products are identical, so there is no edge to either in quality. The Bryant has more features with 2 stage heat and the variable speed motor since you aren't comparing like products.

    Does this mean that in this case Bryant wins

    I agree with previous posts. The Bryant with a variable speed blower and slightly increased efficiency gives you more bang for your buck.
