Top of Line Bryant System a Total Nightmare
Hi All: I had posted back in August and was trying to evaluate which system to go with in Atlanta. I wanted high effeciency and was advised that this was overkill but...well, I'm sorry to report that I went ahead with the 20 SEER Bryant 280ANV04800 Heat Pump; CNPVP6124AT coil with Evolution Extreme Zoning and 97% 987MA60100V21 97% furnace and it has not worked out. I wish I had seen Tigerdune's post before buying but I got injured and had to have surgery so was not in shape to be checking posts etc. In any case, tt seems that the company that installed the systems cannot get the zoning to work correctly (too much barometric pressure/air to the smaller zones and the heat does not work variably). To fix this, they installed manual bipass dampers and disabled most of the airflow. Now when it calls for a lot of heat in one of the zones, the furnace shuts down and gives a code 33 error message. It is a true mess. I think the company that sold me the units just does not have the expertise and training to properly install and maintain this type of high-end system. I just have learned that they are not a factory authroized Bryant dealer and the distributor has been out and says it is an "equipment selection and installation problem" not an equipment problem and they are no help. Just thought I would pass along my sad story so no one else falls into this trap. If anyone has any advice for me at this point I would love to hear it.
