Bryant offers four different types of heating systems as of 2015: HYBRID HEAT dual fuel systems, packaged heating systems, geothermal heating systems and split systems. All Bryant heating systems are sold and installed by local dealers, who can help customers choose the systems that best fit their specific heating needs.
Bryant's HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system consists of a heat pump, gas furnace, evaporator coil and a control. Both the heat pump and gas furnace can be used to provide heating, while the heat pump can also provide cooling. The control helps the system choose between using the gas furnace or the electric heat pump, based on which is most economical at the time. This allows this system to provide maximum efficiency.
Bryant's split heating system typically uses a gas furnace to provide heating and an air conditioner to provide cooling, although it can also be adapted to use a heat pump for both heating and cooling. Split systems, where one part of the system is located inside the home and the other located outside, are the most common type of system.
Although Bryant's packaged systems are typically used mostly for cooling, these systems can be combined with other components to provide electric or combination gas and electric heating.
