Bryant Preferred Compact Heat Pump Review

This small and compact Heat Pump is small enough to fit in tight spaces near patios and decks, but strong enough to provide good quality cooling and heating all year round while saving on energy. The Bryant Preferred Compact Heat Pump is easy on the environment with both its noise levels as well as having refrigerant which is environmentally friendly.

Features and Benefits of the Bryant Preferred Compact Heat Pump

  • Ultra compact for small spaces which means that no matter what the size of your home is, you will have good quality heating and cooling without having to work around a big Heat Pump unit that is more in the way than a benefit.
  • Up to 15.5 SEER which is how the energy efficiency of the unit’s cooling power is measured. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the unit is.
  • 9.0 HSPF which is the heating efficiency of the Heat Pump. The higher the HSPF number is, the more efficient the unit is at heating your home.
  • Sound as low as 66 dB which is quieter than a conversation. This gives you the freedom to speak to someone where ever you are in your home and not have to try to speak over the noise of your Heat Pump.
  • DuraGuard Plus protection system which ensures that your outdoor unit will last so much longer because of the protection it lends to the unit from the outdoor elements in even the harshest climates.
  • Blow – through design which supplies a constant flow of hot or cold air depending on your needs instead of shooting sudden bursts of hot or cold through the home to keep your home at a constant and comfortable temperature.
  • Environmentally sound Puron refrigerant which is ahead of its time as it does not harm the earth’s ozone layer and complies with the Federal Law that will be passed in the next few years already.
  • 10-year parts limited warranty upon registration which gives you the confidence to use your unit without being concerned about it failing after a few years.
