Which HVAC is better for you?

Before I get into this blog post about the different units we recommend, please know as your comfort consultant, not every system is for every person. As the owner of Austex, I have been in this industry for over 35 years, I understand that when it rains, it pours. This blog talks about three HVAC options that have a range of different features that will fit your budget. Please know, all three units are recommended by me, and it’s important that you choose what’s best for you.

As a homeowner, you rely on your HVAC unit to keep your home comfortable year-round. But as your system ages, it may become less efficient and reliable, leading to higher energy bills and more frequent breakdowns. If you’re in the market for a new HVAC unit, I recommend Bryant HVAC units. They offer a range of options to fit your needs and budget. Let’s take a closer look at the Legacy™ Line Single Stage, Preferred™ Two Stage, and Evolution™ Variable Speed units.

Which HVAC unit is best for you?
Cool Your Home with High Efficiency and High Value

Legacy™ Line Single Stage: A Good Option

If you’re looking for a reliable and affordable HVAC unit, the Legacy™ Line Single Stage is a great choice. This unit is designed to deliver consistent and efficient heating and cooling, with a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of up to 16. The single-stage compressor ensures that the unit operates at maximum capacity, providing consistent temperature control throughout your home. Plus, with Bryant’s durable construction and rigorous testing, you can trust that your Legacy™ Line Single Stage unit will last for years to come.

Preferred™ Two Stage: A Better Option

For homeowners who prioritize comfort and energy efficiency, the Preferred™ Two Stage unit is a step up from the Legacy™ Line. This unit offers two stages of heating and cooling, allowing it to operate at a lower capacity when temperatures are mild, reducing energy consumption and wear and tear on the unit. With a SEER rating of up to 17, the Preferred™ Two Stage is also more efficient than the Legacy™ Line. Additionally, this unit includes features like Bryant’s DuraGuard™ Plus protection system, which protects against corrosion and other forms of wear and tear, ensuring your unit lasts for years to come.

Evolution™ Variable Speed: The Best Option

If you want the ultimate in comfort, efficiency, and control, the Evolution™ Variable Speed unit is the way to go. This unit offers variable speed operation, allowing it to adjust its output to match the precise heating and cooling needs of your home. This leads to greater comfort and energy efficiency, with a SEER rating of up to 20.5. Additionally, features such as Perfect Humidity® technology manage both temperature and humidity levels to ensure optimal home comfort. The Evolution™ Connex® control system enables you to monitor and control your unit from anywhere using your smartphone, providing you with unparalleled control over your home’s climate.

Why Upgrade Your HVAC Unit?

Upgrading your HVAC unit offers a range of benefits for homeowners. First and foremost, a new unit will likely be more efficient than your old one, leading to lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint. Additionally, newer units are designed to be quieter, providing more peaceful and comfortable indoor environments. Plus, with features like variable speed operation and advanced control systems, you’ll have greater control over your home comfort, ensuring that you’re always comfortable, no matter the weather.

In conclusion, upgrading your HVAC unit is a smart investment for homeowners. We have maintenance on our cars, pest control, lawn care, and so much more, but we forget about our unit outside, until… well, it’s 108 degrees in this Texas heat and it fails. Having a preventative maintenance on your HVAC unit, is one of the best things you can do to save money, prevent emergencies, and keep your family comfortable all year round.
